I’ve been waiting for this for a while: UbuntuME is picking up speed, with a 0.2 release built off Edgy available for a test drive. I’m downloading it as I type, and I’m going to give it a whirl this week (I have a long weekend ) to see what it will do.
Screenshots are gorgeous, with a smooth green color scheme. I see there is a Koran study application in it, and a couple of other unique applications.
I’ll have to see if there is a lightweight version anywhere, although it’s probably much too early to ask. My worry is that it appears to be built on Gnome, and no disrespect to that desktop environment, but I do love a less bulky environment. I’ll ask on their forums. This is great!
P.S.: For the most part, the mainstream Ubuntu user reaction seems to be positive.
