Background : Just got into Linux recently and know about as little as possible - but also know that I will never return to Mac or Windoze (have both still working). Purchased an Everex PC with gOS on-line, primarily to replace my aging WIN 98 box to use as a cheap Internet client, but have since been fascinated with the flexibility and amount of software available and the ease with which it is obtained.
gOS stands for Good Operating System and is based on Ubuntu 7.10 and Enlightenment 17 I believe. It is slanted towards using Google and Google Applications on the Internet - something I wanted for the intended purpose.
Questions: Anyone out there using gOS 1.01 longer than a few weeks like me?
Can you use applications written for GNOME, KDE, or other GUI environments in whatever environment currently part of your system, or do you need to use that specific GNOME, KDE? (don't wish to get involved too much with the terminal yet.)
This PC has a Suspend, Hibernate, and Shutdown mode. I typically shutdown my computers after use. Are the above comparable to WIN Sleep & Wake? I get the feeling there is more than meets the eye here.
Thanks for your help in advance,
