Linux Gael Duval has announced the first test release of Ulteo, a new distribution started by Mandrake-founder Gael Duval. From the release announcement: "Here is the first public version of Ulteo! Its codename is 'Sirius' because we want to make it a star." From the release notes: "This installable live CD is based on Debian and Ubuntu packages. It's installed on the hard-drive using 'Yuch'. A daemon, called UGD (Ulteo General Daemon), is always connecting to Ulteo servers to see if a newer, more up to date system is available. It can then upgrade to this new system." Ulteo is based on Ubuntu 6.06 and uses kernel 2.6.15, X.Org 7.0, KDE 3.5.2, and Firefox 1.5.0.8. The CD image is available for download. Update: Screenshot tour. Rejoice, boys and girls.

It looks to me just like KDE pretending to be a fckuped up Vista. And faliling miserabily...

What screenshots are you looking at? KDE with plastik looks nothing like vista.

It looks very much like KDE, but I really wouldn't say it looks like Vista. While I personally don't really care for the looks and feel of KDE (I tend to get lost) I suppose it rocks the boat for many people.

I for one think it looks quite generic, and like 'another' Debian + KDE distro.

It might excel after all, but if it's main feature is a new update daemon I fear for the worst.
