gOS for the Cloudbook to use GNOME

Filed under
Linux

If you have not already heard, SCALE, or the Southern California Linux Expo, is now underway. So far, the most interesting news comes from ZaReason, a manufacturer of many Linux-based computers and a reseller of Everex’s gPC and CloudBook, regarding gOS on the CloudBook. According to Click, the CloudBook will now run a version of gOS with GNOME, instead of Enlghtenment, showing that Everex is continuing to improve their software.

When gOS first came out on the gPC, it was criticized heavily. At CES, Everex released gOS 2.0, which I hoped would solve some of the problems people had had with the original gOS. I don’t know for sure if it did, because I never saw another review (the EEE had already taken the attention from the gPC.) Anyway, more improvements always help, but is changing to GNOME an improvement? I think so.
