Ulteo Declares a Desktop Revolution

Filed under
Linux

Several Linux systems debuted over the last few years with the promise of making Linux easier for the ordinary user. The lastest of the desktop debutantes is a mysterious Linux know as Ulteo.

Ulteo is the brainchild of Mandrake Linux founder Gael Duval, who was recently ousted from the corporation that now calls itself Mandriva. According to Deval, Ulteo is not just user friendly, but actually represents a whole new paradigm that will change the way we think about Linux.

Full Story (pdf alert).

Looking forward to trying it

He plants the seeds to something that can become rather big. When PCLOS forked from Mandrake 9.2, who would have thought they could outperform the large and commercial Mandriva, at least based in DistroWatch ranks?

Thumbs up to Gael.
