Is this pure debian?

Just wondering if this is a pure debian base. Like if it is 100% compatible with debian packages. if so, I would totally install it.

I don't know about the recent release, but in earlier times you could just add their repo to your SID and apt-get the desktop "mezzo" and could use it. It looked swell, a lot like what Novell is trying to do with the revamped startmenus in Gnome and KDE but more consequent. I also realized that moving non-hideable control elements to the four corners eats too much desktop space and really is awkward for day to days use, or at least not my cup of tea. I'm more of a hotkey+mouse guy ;-)
