Yet ANOTHER Ubuntu derivative...

While searching for a good linux os to use instead of Ubuntu (nothing personal, just not a huge fan of the popular os's or Ubuntu's gui) I happen to stumble upon a a magical Ubuntu derivative named Pinguy OS. This os is simply Ubuntu with a crap load (~800 mb to be precise) of new apps, a new theme, a global dock, and such. The gui is amazingly amazing imo it's very clean cut. Anywho, i'm currently using it on my laptop and couldn't be much happier... The os is pretty unknown atm hence the need of this thread, so I thought I would share. Information below!

That's all you need yes? Alrighty. Opinions?

It looks kinda sexy. But also kinda bloated. I recently installed Ubuntu-Netbook remix, and I've been considering dumping it and just installing Arch, simply because it's got a ton of crap I don't need. If there's one thing I hate it's a bloated computer.

That being said, I haven't used it, so my opinion is based solely off of what you said and what the site claims.

It is fairly bloated, but there is an add-remove option... Personally i'm a huge app user and about 90% of the preset apps I would use. So I guess it's not for everyone ;)
