It looks just like Mepis 3.4 (with the difference that it comes with KDE 3.5) It also uses the same hardware detection, and it works the same -- the only difference that users will see will be that sources.list point to dapper repos and that if you do a dpkg -l you'll see "ubuntu" to the end of the packages.
I would advice general public not to install it: not because it's not good, but because is experimental and it's based on Dapper that's not released yet => things will break, it's only meant as a sneak peek.
it's pretty SWEET. i loaded it yesterday. it made it through the update with all of the repositories checked & didn't break. the firefox 1.5 font bug is still there. i run the mozilla package instead of the included one to get around that. i've been distro hopping trying to find one that had kde 3.5 & would let me have open office 2.0. i'm going to try to install the edutainment packages today. if that doesn't break it, it's a keeper.
6.0 Bata 1 (the latest) is now on distro watch. Enjoy. I've had it on a drive for a couple days now and it is solid. Lacks flash player though I think it can be installed, I just haven't had time to play.
