Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu DistroWatch reviews Geubuntu, and concludes: "For Enlightenment and Ubuntu fans this distro is custom made for you. It takes the best of Ubuntu and combines it with a great desktop environment. If Ubuntu or Kubuntu is a bit too heavy for your equipment, then Geubuntu just might be what you need. It might also be an idea for those who find Elive a bit overwhelming, or those who like to be a bit different from the rest of the crowd."

Still Linux

It's still Linux, it's still Ubuntu and applications for real world use are still seriously lacking. This is no different then the hundreds of other distro's. Until major companies start developing software for linux, it will still be a "toy os" for the desktop.

There are major companies developing software for the Linux desktop.

Is MacOS also a toy os because certain major companies refuse to develop their applications for it? According to your logic, it is.

NO Mac is not a toy it has a niche in the graphics industry. I think GNU/Linux is a great OS however you don't use the OS you use it's applications. I have used Linux in the past and it always leaves me disapointed whan the programs that I need are not available for it. Most big companies when they release software make a MAC version. Professionally I need to run Photoshop, this is not possible in linux, Please don't tell me about wine or vurtulazition software. I also like to run and bike and the training tool that I use are also not avail. for Linux. Untill this happens for me and millions of others Linux is nothing but a hobbiest platform, when it comes to the desktop. Also a lot of the programs that I enjoy using on Linux are avail for Windows.
