    It look really nice. One thin I wonder is, do all of these 'ubuntu based' distros use the same repos?

    if it's ubuntu based, it uses the same repos. i have yet to see one that does not. although i believe that linux mint may have a couple of their own.

    Most distros based off others will use the same repos, and possibly have their own hosting the few packages that aren't in their original distro's repos. =]

    I've played around on the live dvd of Open-Progex 8.20 32bit for an hour, and I was impressed. It seemed very well polished in look and feel. Excellent selection of applications. Will be installing this soon as it has almost all the additional apps I usually manually post install. Even has a nice selection of alternative themes. Multimedia worked perfectly. Compiz-Fusion is set up nicely. I tested this on a 1.5yr old hp laptop - 1.6 Core due, 1Gb Ram with intel graphics. This is really an all in one distro.

    Ask your doctor if Progex is right for you.

    Haha sorry I just can't get used to that name. It seems to have a pretty decent choice of applications, though that takes out my fun of customizing my Ubuntu. I guess if I was lazy that distro might look appealing.

    i used the live cd for a couple of hours on a friends laptop and have to say i really like it. it has all codecs like linux mint, and a great selection of pre-installed multimedia apps, but not overkill like ultimate edition. plus it has compiz working out of the box, awn and a great theme. after a fresh install of progex you would basically need to do very little tweaking if any.

    i think i will put this on my next new computer build. it really is a great "out of the box" solution.

    Re: anyone try Progex?

    I downloaded it yesterday and have been playing around with it in virtualbox before i make the "jump".

    One thing that worried me - coming from a windows where the "EVERYPIECEOFSOFTWAREISPOTENTIALMALWARE" roolz, i'd like to know what SYSLOGD and KLOGD are.

    Googling throws them around without context. So, anyone help me out?
    OMG! Ubuntu!
