Game Drift Linux is a brand new Ubuntu-based distro from the Danish company, Linos. The firm specialises in creating Ubuntu derivatives for various special uses. As well as Game Drift, for example, the company also offers GoSchool, an Ubuntu-based live distro used by Danish schools to allow students to carry out exams on their own computers while still ensuring an identical software set and, more importantly, a secure and level playing field.
