"Another interesting point is Kogan's choice of operating system: the Ubuntu-based gOS.

""By using the gOS operating system, we are bringing our customers one step closer to cloud computing. The operating system facilitates easy access to a number of Google services, as well as a host of easy to use, powerful open source programs," said Kogan.

""Most importantly, gOS is extremely easy to use. It's a very aesthetically pleasing, powerful, intuitive, and fast operating system. One thing we're hoping to do is make Linux less daunting for everyone, including casual computer users."
