Everex put out some new machines this week that utilize an Ubuntu 7.10 based OS called gOS.  This Operating System uses a heavily modified and kindergarten inspired E17 desktop that makes the RISCOS look good.  So whats new about this OS?  It basically acts like a portal to all of Googles web apps.  Nothing else but that.

Phoronix has a review of the gOS also known as the GreenOS bet you thought uit meant Google OS.  The OS thats preloaded everyone seems to agree that its good for one thing, public PC usage such as internet cafe’s and mall kiosks.  I just wanna know how much Google paid them to build their OS like that.  Wal-Mart has a page for this computer and at $199.00 if you want a Linux PC its not a bad buy, I would just load up PCLinuxOS and kick gOS to the curb
