| I found the gPC and its gOS operating system easy to use.
|
| For example, just clicking anywhere on the open desktop brings up an

| popular programs. I also like the Package Manager, a part of Ubuntu, which
| finds and easily installs dozens of free and open-source programs.

Gosh, gOS is good

| work on any computer that any other Linux supports. Enlightenment is an
| impressive desktop environment, and the iBar is a low-overhead way to blend
| cool effects with needed functionality. I think users will like it. ¬* ¬*
