That's Ark Linux. You're seeing our installer in the first screen shot, and mission control in the second one. The reason it looks kinda Windows-like is the fact that we're aiming at the new Linux user that is transitioning from the Windows platform. There is nothing wrong with helping new users feel accustomed to Linux. :)

Sorry, but installer really sux ;)

I have so many partition, put a mount point for everyone is horrible! Please remove this messages: "Mount point is dontrememberwhat many times" when you let mount point empty for some partitions.

And, i have xfs partitions, i select /dev/hda8 to be formated in xfs for / filesystem. Installer failed with "cannot mount, invalid argument"

This has been fixed quite a while ago - it went unnoticed initially because most people just use "System Install".

I agree. It can resemble another OS and be fine. There is nothing wrong with that. Some people, I think...are literally scared of windows. They need to go on one of those talkshows about phobias..and run from an XP disk screaming.

Anyway, functionality, though...is very important. I haven't used this, so I can't say.

While Linux and MAC does look different, it brings the strengths of those OS's to the users.
If someone is leaving MS they are already unhappy, who not just give the best of Linux? I've given Linux to many people, and none spent that much time getting "up and running" because it looking so different. In fact they usually love the way it looks.
Trying to make a win look a like is like moving to Linux but not really, which in my view is a half baked approach. It might be that the designer likes the win look, which if that's the case then say so.
Even better would be to offer both.

Somewhat resembling that other OS isn't a bad idea -- first of all it eases transition for former Windows users, second -- as much as I hate Microsoft in general and Windows in particular -- not everything about it is bad.

 Windows Like?

 
 by BorgQueen on: Apr 1 2005

Windows like? I think not.
If compared, one would notice, Mission Control looks more like MAC's Preferences interface than windows. Additionally, one must remember, Windows has taken the majority of all it has, from other OSes. There is little originality in it.

And then there's another thing to remember, "Don't knock it until you've tried it!", good advice.

 Pretty & productive

There are a few bugs. It is inconenient that KMail sends 'EHLO' rather than 'HELO' to the POP/SMTP server.

Overall, well done and well-suited to the winsheep who might be attracted to Linux for the eye candy. Kynaptic is rather subtle in searching the web for updates and packages, so much so that some think it doesn't work, initially.

Why would that be a KMail bug? EHLO (while it does look a bit awkward) is the correct way to start a conversation with an ESMTP capable SMTP server (which has been pretty much all of them for a couple of years).
See e.g. http://cr.yp.to/smtp/ehlo.html for details on EHLO.

 A Distro To Watch

 
 by BorgQueen on: Sep 2 2005

The installer continues to improve. Now making it possible to install Ark on machines with multiple hard drives. And, as always, stability and functionality continue to improve as well. Ark probably has the best none kde app integration of any Gnu Linux distro. While other distro as still struggling with things like OpenOffice.org integration, Ark has had this down for quite some time.

This grassroots distro is showing as much sophistication as most well established distro. Ark Linux is definitely a distro to watch.

I know my company is.

Unfortunately, yes. This needs corrected so it honors the KDE icon theme.

 Problems installing

Hi I have a Dell XPS M170. I'm trying to install booting from the CD, but when it comes to Locating CD it waits for a long time stopping with the message that it cannot find the CD, but it is in. Any idea why

Sadly there could be a few reasons.

The best one is that the cd disk is no good. Try burning a new one.

If you burned it on Windows (Windows often produces "coasters"), try rebooting and burning from a fresh session that hasn't used up all its RAM.

Another reason is your cdrom device is failing. Try letting it cool off for 15 mins before trying to boot from it.

Last reason I can think of is both of the above. Your burner is failing thus producing bad cds or partially written cds.

If your burner app has some kinds of verification of burn function, I suggest you use it.

If you need any further assistance please come to the IRC help channel irc.freenode.org, #arklinux.

Good Luck!

Njaaa, the burer is working :-) I've installed and burned several OS'es/CD's since. It is only Ark that is failing. FC5, OpenSuse, Xandros and Windows works fine it is just Ark that is failing. It works fine when I installed under vmware.

Is there anything "strange" about that hardware (e.g. SATA CD drive)?

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
