A while back, I wrote about creating a distribution based on Gecko, including Firefox, Miro, Songbird, Flock, Thunderbird, and Sunlight. At that time, Isuggested basing the distribution on SymphonyOS, which uses FVWM and a desktop based on Gecko and XUL. The only problem was that SymphonyOS had not seen a release since 2006.
Well, that last weakness has been solved.
The new version of SymphonyOS, renamed SymphonyOne was released yesterday, based on Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon. There are no free downloads yet, but you can contribute $1 to the developer for a direct link. The downloads will be open to the public starting April 18th. If the developer gives me a review copy, I'll let you know about whether it lives up to its "newer, faster" hype.
