Linux Linux.com takes a look at gOS. They conclude: "I really liked gOS. It's a cute little system with lots of functionality and great looks. It works well and is fast and stable on my laptop. It should work on any computer that any other Linux supports. Enlightenment is an impressive desktop environment, and the iBar is a low-overhead way to blend cool effects with needed functionality. I think users will like it."

Next came out in 1988 and had a dock, the Amiga had a shareware or public domain version. Linux didn't even had a working GUI in those days... A bit strange because X appears to be from the stoneage.

Not only that, but Linux is a kernel ... it doesn't have a GUI or a desktop even to this day.

No free software desktop was available until about 1997 with GNOME, according to GNU history:

Read the section about "Non-free libraries".

KDE disn't become free software (because of its Qt dependency) until about 2000.
