Pinguy OS – another alternative Gnome Shell distro
Speaking of Linux Mint and their more user-friendly tweaked version of Gnome Shell; there’s another very good Linux distro called Pinguy OS that is coming out soon with their new version based on Ubuntu 11.10. Pinguy OS comes totally pre-configured with a ton of applications, codecs and utilities pre-installed. Here’s a preview from their blog that looks great: Pinguy OS 11.10 Alpha Shell Released. Both 32 and 64 Bit.
So for the best of both worlds (combining Gnome 2 and 3), it looks like interesting times ahead for Linux Mint and Pinguy OS. In the evolving world of GNU/Linux, there are always alternatives!
