Pinguy OS: Linux For Dummies

It’s an old trope, one that has almost entirely lost its meaning over time, but there’s another Linux distro that is designed for the average (or slightly below average) computer user.

This one, however, is about as close as any have come to creating an idiot-proof Linux distro. Pinguy OS (www.pinguyos.com) is based on Ubuntu and is mighty fun to play with.

A Little Background
Pinguy OS was built by a fellow named Antoni Norman who wanted a Linux OS that he could give to friends and family – without haing to constantly provide tech support. He’d been recommending Ubuntu but grew frustrated with how stark it was. Even though it’s relatively easy to add software, codecs, and the like with Ubuntu’s repositories, he found that many novice users were still having trouble finding everything they needed to make their system work as they wanted it to.

What’s somewhat amusing about Pinguy OS is that it has a certain Mac feel to it. It’s pretty, it makes heavy use of docks, and everything is all set up for you ahead of time. Further, for the most part, it removes the need for people to choose which programs to use.
