It looks cool, and if it has mezzo thats great. Rumour has it, its very intuitive. I like trying different WMs and this one looks interesting.

You can use mezzo and orchestra by adding these lines to your sources.list
deb http://archive.progeny.com/symphonyos/apt/ ./
then a
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install mezzo orchestra

It's nice but still beta.

Don't you have to be a Linux expert before you create your own distro?

And if you did make one, you should base it off Debian, cause Ubuntu's added so much stuff, that you wouldn't be able to differentiate yourself.

I agree with the first poster. Good Luck with that.

To use mezzo and/or orchestra, will they work on a 64-bit box? For
that matter, I assume you´re not limited to Dapper (I want to try
this out on my 64-bit Breezy).

This thread was started six months ago, and that link in the first post is dead, as far as I can tell.
