Distro Hoppin`: iGolaware Linux 2.0

Filed under

I will be taking a look at yet another Ubuntu-based distribution, called iGolaware 2.0. Quite a catchy name, right? No? Well, it might not sound like much, but hey, look where UBUNTU is today.

There are some OSes out there that make you feel like /home right from the Live environment. I feel obliged to inform you that, for me, iGolaware is one of those and if I will seem a bit biased towards it, you'll know why. Big Grin I'll try not to, but hey, just in case, there's my disclaimer. It's the first time I've heard about this distribution so I had zero expectations. OK, I'm lying, I was expecting a sloppy remix of Ubuntu, a distro that was simply made out of boredom and had no future ahead of it. But surprise, surprise, iGolaware is quite a serious project included in the portfolio of quite a serious IT consulting/solutions-provider startup in Netherlands.

The image file is ~1.2 GB in size, but is being pushed through quite a fast server, as it reached my computer with speeds of 4-5 MB/s. Bonus points for that! In case you're experiencing slow speeds, there's a handy sourceforge mirror on the download page.
