Linux

"The GoblinX Project is proud to announce the third beta of the next stable release. The G:Noblin is the GoblinX Gnome and GTK/GTK2 based distribution. The edition is ideal for those users whose are fan of the Gnome desktop environment. This distribution is an old desire of GoblinX users.

The G:Noblin edition include GNOME 2.24.3 and several improvements and modifications in the core of the system. The method of save changes are different in this edition. Now all changes are saved in different directories when the Netbook interface is used or a non english language. Also we added a second check for swap partition when blkid fails to find it, we changed the default graphical boot to use GDM for english and also all other languages and added some other improvements.

The G:Noblin brings to you two kinds of desktop environment inside the same ISO (cdrom). The first is the default Gnome desktop and the second is a special prepared interface for Netbooks, using the Ubuntu Netbook Remix model and some ideas provided by Foresight."
