"...I wasn't too impressed with the Gnome GUI—that is, until I found Helix Gnome. ... It was only when Gnome released GNU version 1.2 that I actually learned about Helix Gnome. I ventured to Gnome.org and found a link that took me directly to helixcode.com, the home of Helix Code. Little did I know at that time, about an hour later I would be running Linux with Helix Gnome."

"...the installation for Helix Gnome was actually quite different from what I was used to. It is actually a means of PUSH technology, meaning the software that you require is downloaded off of the Internet and installed onto your machine."

"I immediately saw a difference in how the program loaded. It was almost like watching a Mac start up when it's first booted. A welcome screen appeared, with little icons to show which programs were being loaded into Gnome. Needless to say, I was impressed."
