"ZevenOS is a German-born project that offers Debian-based and
Ubuntu-based versions of their BeOS-like system. ZevenOS is based
on Ubuntu (Xubuntu) and ZevenOS-Neptune is based on Debian Testing.
The main purpose is to preserve some of the features of BeOS in a
modern, capable operating system. Neptune 1.9.1 was recently
released to bring the latest Linux goodies to users.
"Being developed in Germany means that the primary language for
Neptune is German. However, there is an English option at the Grub
boot screen. The installation documentation available on the
desktop is in both German and English as well. The hard drive
installer has a shortcut on the desktop as well as a persistent
image creator for use with USB sticks."
