"more stable than ever" doesn't fill me with confidence. Also, "Read the ProxLinux 2.2 Release Annoncement!"
Otherwise I'm not too crazy about having a new OS on here, and the site's not doing a good job if it wants to bring in noobs like me who've no idea what they're doing :T
edit: moreover I can't make out why, if I was getting my linux on, I would opt for this over any other version or "distro" or whatever they're called >_>
I did spot what I figure is a poor design decision right off though: the taskbar bit at the bottom doesn't cover the full screen width, leaving useless gaps either side. Unless those are like places for maximised windows to fit some extra buttons or something, s'not a good idea.
Not if it's just another Ubuntu clone it won't... It's one thing to develop your own distro on top of the basic Linux Kernel, but there are a a billion and two forks of Ubuntu and half as many for Debian itself. This is honestly no more original than creating a recolour fan character.
Not to put down the work itself as it's undoubtedly a great learning process... but that doesn't really mean it's got any chance at all of competing against larger, established projects that already do the exact same thing. Seems a bit out of place, really, to be hocking it around as such.
If I'm honest guys, I haven't used any Linux distro in years since I got Windows 7, I only used it before so I didn't have to use Vista, because it done my [censored]ing head in.
I haven't taken anything to do with the building of the distro itself, I've just provided some images for it.
In terms of what the actual OS itself is, it's Lubuntu stripped down even further to the basics to make it very lightweight, and my friend programmed his own right-click menu system (Different than Fluxbox's right-click menu)
"More stable than ever" refers to version 2.2 in particular, since we had some bugs in the v 2.0 release, but they were stamped out quickly, mainly due to the tint2 panel, since it's a mothballed project.
As for not standing out against other linux projects, we've managed to earn our own place on Fernhill Linux and our OS was accepted into Distrowatch.
We're also being sponsored and some kind fellow has donated a dedicated server for us to host our ISO's, our site and our forum on.
And the reason this is in the Arcade Zone is because my reckoning was it comes under computer stuff, I couldn't really think of a better place to post it.
