LXer: Pinguy OS, a better Ubuntu - Distro Review

Published at LXer:

I have now found my new favourite distro and it goes by the name of Pinguy OS. Pinguy OS started off as an Ubuntu 10.04 Minimal CD that was customized like no other to include a fantastic range of default applications, Gnome applets, Firefox addons, and theme.

I still don't get how different default apps installed and different desktop or dock/wallpaper/icons means it is a different distro. Forks tend to die off, stick with the main distro and install the packages you want.
