Today I downloaded gOS so that I could have a look at it.
I was impressed. If you are a fan of Google™ then this could be right up your street.
I have no idea who is behind it, but it is based on Ubuntu and uses the excellent e17 version of the Enlightenment window manager. I have liked e17 for a long time, and it is great to see it used like this in a distribution.
The end result is a system that is lightweight, suitable as a portal to common web based services, particularity those provided by Google.
I will be keeping an eye on how this develops.
