gOS Google Linux OS

Although not officially google, it seams a google integrated/themed OS has been released by an LA company, called gOS.

Have a look here if you like: gOS

The OS is a derivitive of Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy, with google apps integrated, and a nice green (much better than brown) enlightenment theme.

Comes on a LiveCD, and is also sold retail on some walmart PCs.

Looks pretty but the huge google tie-in kinda scares me.

Still would be good for your average user who wants a computer that "just works"

I really hope that they don't go that way, but it does seem rather inevitable

Something happens to men, when they attain power and wealth...they most often forget their brothers....

Software brought to us by a advertising agency. At least we get some good and well supported software, which we don't have to pay for directly.

Yeah, it comes with the spyware and adware already embedded instead of having to download it via an insecure browser.

Good point why risk anonymity? Goggle can insure you information gets put out there and in a form everyone who pays can use!!
