"...Though Progeny provides KDE2, GNOME 1.2 is its default desktop. Progeny has provided some "configlets" (check out the screenshots) that integrate with the GNOME Control Center. While they don't do everything something like Linuxconf does, for instance, they do provide a way to configure printers, networking, time settings, X configuration, and basic e-mail transport settings. It's nice to be able to deal with these things from the same place the desktop environment itself is maintained."

"Existing Debian Potato users can make the hop to Progeny with real ease, too, using apt-get. The instructions on Progeny's download page spell it all out."

"Progeny is also shaping up to present itself as a GNOME-friendly distribution for tracking newer releases of the project, thanks to the efforts of Eric Gillespie, Jr. a developer for the company who has created an apt-gettable archive of the GNOME 1.4RC1 (at the moment) release, including Mozilla 0.8 and Nautilus."
