Hands up if you remember gOS?
gOS was a green-coloured Ubuntu-based Linux distribution that made a splash during early 2008 when it became the default OS on a line of PCs, laptops and netbooks from computer manufacturer Everex. Much of the lesser-known gOS hardware was exclusive to the American Walmart chain – such as its ‘mac mini’ style gPC.
So what happened?
gOS has to be admired for being one of few Linux distributions to ship on hardware by default, as well as have said hardware sold on the shelves of Walmart.
