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."

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.

Here is software for your polar heart monitor.

You can run Photoshop in a VM, seamless; or you can run it in Wine. Don't discount it and claim you absolutely can't when you have options, or your argument carries no weight. Why won't Wine or virtualization work for you? It's working for many others.

It's not a hobbiest platform just because it doesn't meet your needs. Don't be a fool.

Thank you, you echoed my own thoughts.

I hardly consider myself a hobbyist doing statistical modeling and analysis. I have R and SAS (yes, that SAS from a major corporation) at my disposal.

Just because it doesn't meet your needs doesn't mean it doesn't meet someone else's.

You really can't be serious about this reply. You send a link for polar and linux. Polar makes about 20 Heart rate monitors. Mine does not work under linux. I googled for days.

Photoshop CS 3 Does not work uder Linux check the wine link that you sent me it sates that what works is NOTHING.

People on this site really need to get their heads out of there asses on replys and visit realty.
