Here's a Linux distribution that I'm currently busy doing,
AMA Desktop 2007, it has some good features like Welcome Center,
Live Chat Support (Right into the desktop), Personal Proxy Wizard
and File System Preferences to name a few.. A new version will be release
tonight with many new features and bug fixes,
a Desktop Preferences is added to "Change the layout of the panels, and
instantly switch to Web 2.0 Applications"
