Pros: Three Window Managers, great desktop, gtk and qt softs
Cons: kernel 2.4.27

GoblinX is new, very new idea for a livecd that could be installed into harddisk.
The idea is create a most beautiful and practical desktop ever, standardising icons and themes to make it easy for novice users. All stuff included has a GoblinX theme.
The boot is graphical using bootsplash, and there are three different window managers, Kde, Xfce and WindowMaker.
Include a lot of programs like Mplayer, Mozilla, K3b, Gnumeric, Kword, Gimp, Gaim, Gwenview, Xmms, and some games like Cube, Critical Mass, Supertux.
And also include Nvidia Drivers.
