Pinguy OS 10.04.1.2 Review

[ Thanks to Jim Lynch for this link. ]

"I've reviewed so many different Ubuntu remasters that I've more or less become numb when I see a new one. After all, aren't they all pretty much the same? Well no, not really. Different remasters offer different things. This week I decided to look at Pinguy OS. Pinguy OS is a strange blend of Ubuntu, Linux Mint and a bunch of other stuff all rolled into a unique package. It contains the default Ubuntu features and a whole lot more including a ton of multimedia codecs, additional desktop goodies, and a great range of default software.

"Before I get into the review, you're probably wondering what Pinguy OS is and why it was made. Here's a brief bit of background from Antoni Norman where he explains why he created Pinguy OS and how it's different from Ubuntu:

"Ubuntu is a great OS and undoubtedly the most popular and easiest Linux based Distro to use but even with its default setup and chosen programs it's still lacking functionality and ease of use for most new users. So what I decided to do was build a Distro that looks good, could do everything most user would ever want to do and that was very simple to use."
