A Week with Pinguy � The Slick Ubuntu Remix

"These days, Linux distros are a dime a dozen, especially in the field of the Ubuntu remix. Just about anyone thinks they can create a usable spinoff (they're probably right) and that it'll be wildly successful (they're probably wrong). For this reason, we don't often give a full writeup to an Ubuntu remix on MTE unless it offers something really unique or interesting. Pinguy isn't exactly revolutionary, but it is among a rare breed: an Ubuntu spinoff that might actually have some real improvements over the original.
