“Pinguy OS 10.10.1 offers an optimised build of Ubuntu
with an even greater focus on ease of use and functionality for the
home user. Russell Barnes takes it out for a quick spin to see how
it performs…

“Pros: Pinguy’s maker has scoured the open source world to find
amazing apps and tweaks. It’s one of the sexiest and most
functional desktops we’ve seen

“Pinguy OS 10.10.1′s developers clearly set out with the
goal of finishing what Ubuntu started in respect of a highly
polished and usable desktop, but it’s also something of a case

creator mentions listening to friends and family to note what they
use their computers for, in an effort to track down the perfect
combination of pre-installed apps to best suit their needs.”
