Luninux, a nifty new Ubuntu spin

Hey everybody,

Well, my Arch infatuation (infection?) didn't last long.

As we all know, Ubuntu tends to be a very popular base for spinning, and 
I came across this pretty cool one the other day that I thought some 
might like to check out.

It's called Luninux, and is based on 11.10 + Gnome3, with some pretty 
nice tweaks thrown on top, and a UI design that feels OSX inspired.

While I think the default install group could definitely benefit from 
being trimmed, as it's a bit app heavy, this seems like a really well 
thought out and new-user friendly setup, as well as hitting a sweet spot 
between the radical changes of gnome 3 and unity and a more traditional 
user interaction.

anyways, i'll let you make up your own mind, but take the time to check 
it out!
