gOS 2.0 (beta) Rocket

The latest version of gOS (stands for goodOS not Google OS) was released via BitTorrent a few weeks ago from thinkgos.com. The mirrors for direct FTP and http download are mostly available but the virtual appliance download link is offline (at the time of this post).gOS is the linux distribution that powers the popular EEEPC being sold through Wal-Mart.

gOS is built off Ubuntu Gutsy running the windows manager Enlightenment E17 rather than Gnome. Designed to run on low end and affordable hardware, gOS is built on the reliability and stability of Canonical’s Ubuntu without the added bloat included in the latest Ubuntu release Gutsy.
