Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"The Australian-owned Kogan Agora is among the first
netbook on the market that comes out of the box with gOS, an
Ubuntu-based Linux operating system that has the look and feel of
Mac OS X. You get a dock, a set of freely movable widgets, and even
windows that resemble Mac OS X.
"It would be safe to say that out of all of the netbooks out
there running Linux, the Agora easily has the best Linux
installation yet. gOS is more user-friendly and looks better than
any other version of Linux we have seen.
"gOS is fast, too. Very fast. This is an excellent candidate for
surfing the web, checking email, and writing documents with the
keyboard and mouse easily rating among the best in the
netbook-class. We expect that while there aren't as many programs
available for Linux, users will still be able to get full use out
of comparable applications such as Gimp, OpenOffice, and Wine which
lets you run Windows programs under gOS."
