Description: This distribution is based on Ubuntu. I tried the more stable version 4.0 Daryna with the Gnome environment. It can be downloaded with KDE as well. Everything works just like Ubuntu, but it looks much better. In fact, the default wallpaper has their motto "From freedom came elegence." making it known that it is free software but not the unsightly dark brown everywhere like in Ubuntu.
One thing to note is that it ships with Compiz 3D graphics. If you're into systems that are sleek and elegant, this could be your next favorite.
Some other difference from it's Ubuntu parent, it has it's own web interfaced installer called Mintinstall and their own updater. It also has a restricted driver manager which came in handy for me as I have a ATI graphics card that does not release their drivers to us *nixers.
