I know many of you dream of a Linux distribution that combines Mac OS X's looks with Linux's power. Now, that dream becomes reality with Dreamlinux, a distribution that has under the hood Debian components and pleases the eye of the user with Mac-ish eye candy.
Since the 3.0 Beta 2 release of Dream Linux, I've had in mind to test this distribution at least a little bit. At that moment, it was truly unstable and I thought I should wait some more. A couple of days ago, Beta 3 was available for download and I got the ISO image, burned it on a CD and went to the testing computer. The ISO image is also a Live CD that brings you the possibility to choose from XFCE and GNOME. I booted Dream Linux using GNOME, mainly because I have an affinity for this desktop environment. It didn't take long until I had on my monitor a fully functional Live CD distro. I was intrigued by the Flexiboost technology that's behind Dreamlinux, so I looked up for some info. It seems that Flexiboost can make Dreamlinux so flexible that it can be 100% modular or 100% monolithic. This brings a third possibility: a mixture between the two, which will allow anyone that uses Dreamlinux Foundations to build the Linux distribution of their dreams.
