    Well, this is a good derivative of ubuntu but it has one drawback. It is much too heavy for some slower machines e.g. my system runs Lucid lynx fine and smooth. i tried Pinguy 10.04 and it like crashed my system. I had even to wait 5-7 minutes before i could see a desktop, so I uninstalled immediately and came back to standard Lucid Lynx. It is a nice and good looking derivative though.
