Since this seems to be a major release, I'd love to see a feature about this operation system (hint, hint).

I remember seeing updates on this OS from time to time, but this is the first time I remember looking and being impressed by the graphics. Of course that isn't the only thing to be impressed by, but they seem to be aiming for becoming a "general purpose" OS rather soon, so that is perhaps a top priority.
