For starters, I don't intend for flamebait.

I prefer GNOME myself. Nothing personal against KDE. KDE is alright, although for some reason it reminds me too much of Windows in its 3.x incarnations and its 4.x incarnations haven't always been stable enough for me. Given that KDE doesn't crap out on me in its 4.x incarnates, I actually like it, except for that I prefer the applications centered around GNOME. Dolphin gets points for being tabbed though. Lots of them.

GNOME I found to be a bit more stabler and it feels more streamlined when I use it, and since most of what I use is GTK+ based, such as Firefox, Pidgin, GIMP, and the like, it helps for OS integration (try using a GNOME or KDE application in the opposite environment, it often looks out of place).

Either way, I'll try it out - if you can blow me away with KDE, then KDE it is. Even given my preference, both are pwn (so is Xfce).

And the new dock idea is very intriguing.

That information is confidential for a reason. This project could easily gain the popularity of Mac's and Window's users or more. Also, this project could start small and grow huge. We will never know until it's released, but best believe I know what I have to do and what the system needs to be like to reign.

What I'd really like to see is a new DE, better than Gnome and KDE. I know it'd take more time, but they both DE's have their limitations, and a new DE would give the OS a more unique feel.

Also, does it run Compiz-Fusion?

Yes, to answer your question. Also, I was thinking the same thing about Gnome and KDE. I have seen the limitations of both.

A new DE would be interesting to see, but I'd imagine it'd tack on a lot of additional development time.

Afters going through the comments it seems you have already got plenty of testers.

If I have to test an OS then I would test the latest versions of some popular distros like Fedora and Ubuntu. I don't hope much from any new distro but hats off to your hardwork for making it so beautiful.

Pity that someone would use all the hard work of OSS developers, and not give back.




They are the ones who made this OS possible.
