Pinguy OS - Jack of all trades, master of none


What is Pinguy? It's a heavily tweaked minimal Ubuntu, designed to be usable out of the box by non-geeks. Now, by default, Ubuntu is friendly and balances aesthetics with functionality fairly well. Any deviation from this formula could be a spell of genius or a stroke of disaster; yes, in that order. Some managed to fork Ubuntu into great works of art; others floundered mightily. It can get tiresome, especially if you go through distro testing like a DU sabot penetrating a T-55 armor. But without pride or prejudice, I took Pinguy for a ride.
