Good grief. Snazzy looking Ubuntu-based OS, complete with kernel 3.9. It's worth looking at just for the ext4 corruption fix in that kernel, not to mention SSD caching...

Thanks for the link. I'm going to run it up right now.

Is this some crossover between Ubuntu and MacOS or what??? I really get that MacOS feeling just by looking at that site... Must say, looks good though!

Ran a live session last night (finally)... must say I like it. Different yet familiar.
