If used it a few months ago, and it was great. Mostly what I Liked about it is that it has a mac like UI. It has the dock at the bottom, Has the Mint Menu (Like the menu on Linux mint), and it has the universal Menu bar on the panel. The only con is that the Universal menu bar gets stuck sometimes.

Ok did you down load the iso or did you load it from a disc? do you think that the new distro is that much better than the 10.4? Is there much to the setup ? I am running Mint linux now and was told that this new distro was much better.It sounds like you are using a different linux distro now, did you what did you you change to and was it because of some short coming with the pinguy distro? Thank for your time, have a great day.
