the newest release of PinguyOS in is pretty good. It is speedy and has alot of ready-installed software to get the user up and running immediately. The team working on Pinguy has definitely done a great job with this offering and hopefully continued to fine-tune future release. Possibly the major drawback for me keeping this Linux distro is its too close connection to Ubuntu, yet also the biggest push for me working with it is Ubuntu.
SO, let me explain...Ubuntu see to have a flaw/bug/glitch, etc., from way back to earliest versions, which causes it to go into kind of momentary suspension mode, but only for a few seconds or up to 20 seconds, coupled with dimming of the screen display, especially when multi-tasking. At first, I thought it was within all Linux distros, but after trying Debian, Fedora, OpenSuse, Madriva, I didnt experience this problem at all (over 6 years!). So, I concluded that this glitch must have been in the early codes and never fixed, possibly because no one complained about, and it is not major enough anyways to cause concerns.
Hence my reason for moving on from Pinguy, and from Linux Mint, etc., etc., etc...BUT, the exception seem to be PEAR-OS7, which is Ubuntu-based, yet still was able to steer clear of this minor flaw. So, bravo to PEAR-OS! Anyways, go ahead and try PinguyOS because it's a solid Linux OS for all users.
