Correct me if I'm wrong, but I though the "g" in gOS stands for "good" OS?

No, the g stands for Green.

Is there any way to adopt the settings from gOS? Bringing all this material into my system did not bring the same look/settings you have with a fresh gOS install. For example I get some mashed up gnome/enlightenment bar and lose most of the actual desktop (actually I guess I never "get" it).

Anyone tested this on Harty yet? I just installed it. It apears to be working, but is the e17 ver, and the theme doesn't seem right, any screen shoots of what it should look like?

Thanks!

Ubuntu hardy heron (8.04) is incompatible with gOS, and updating with it will either be refused (when using an Enlightenment based version), or will leave your system "dead", without any installed kernel to run. Just do not upgrade with hardy, remember gOS is not an official Ubuntu variant!

:cry:


enough said ...oops i didnt read the other topics rofl...

What is the easiest way to install Ubuntu? I am planning to dual boot Windows XP and Ubuntu 9.04, I have already burned Ubuntu into a CD and have also downloaded the ISO. But when I go to My Computer to start the installation, a different icon appears. And when I open it with ISO Buster, it opens up separately. I'm confused on what to click.. just to start the installation. Are there any other things I need to download to install Ubuntu? What is the easiest way to install Ubuntu?

The easiest way to install Ubuntu is downloading the ISO, burning it to Disk, and installing it from the live CD.
9.04 is one of Ubuntu's best versions. Boot time is comparable if not better than Windows 7.
Also, I had problems with recognizing all additional drives with Ibex, but this was resolved with 9.04.

Obviously you need to be careful when creating the partition, if you want to dual boot with Windows. You should be safe as long as you do not choose the "entire disk" option.

Hope this helps,
