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."

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.

I'm not the one out of touch with reality here. I'm not the one whining that an OS is only for hobbiests because the one or two apps that I use doesn't work. If it doesn't work, use a vm or stick to native windows, but don't lie and make false statements that it's not ready for anyone because it doesn't work for YOU.

YOU are the only one with the head <-> ass problem here.

Thanks.
