Hardware, Embedded Systems "Earlier this week Everex launched the gPC TC2502, which is a sub-USD 200 PC sold at a major US retailer, but what makes this unique is that it runs the gOS. The gOS (GreenOS) is designed to be a conceptual Google Operating System that is based upon Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon. Though this is not the conventional GNOME desktop environment but an Enlightenment E17 desktop is used that is heavily modified and reflects a green Google theme. The gOS provides easy access to Google services such as YouTube, Google Product Search, Google Calendar, and Google Maps. Also a click away are other web services such as Wikipedia and Facebook. This isn't a pure Internet desktop but Xine, Skype, OpenOffice.org, and other applications are available for this Linux LiveCD. We've been trying the gOS out for a while and it's a rather nice slim desktop Linux distribution that would be perfect for Internet cafes and other public places." More screenshots.

It's based on Enlightenment 17, not Gnome. It doesn't use Nautilus at all. I think the file manager is Entropy tho I'm not sure. Anyway, do your research next time ;-)

Whether is is Gnome, XFCE, Enlightenment or Fluxbox is not the topic of discussion. I had just mentioned it was not anything new. If you know it is Enlightenment then this just further adds to that evidence. I was just using it as an example. Ahh, the pickiness of forum posting when it goes off-topic...

The topic is the gOS distribution of the Linux operating system. What Window Manager/Desktop Environment it uses is very relevant to the discussion. Stop obfuscating the issue. It is not picky to insist on factual correctness.
