Performance and advantages
Enlightenment is a light weight Desktop Shell, so your computer will run at a very high speed with incredible 2D effects, such as animations, fading, shadows and much more. E17 doesn't need a 3D card for all of its effects to run properly and Xcompmgr is provided by default in Geubuntu for you to try out every composite effect (Like real transparencies and shadows) any time you want to. If you find that Xcompmgr doesn't slow down your computer too much, you can even run it as a startup application in Enlightenment. What's incredible about E17 and Xcompmgr is that since they don't need a 3D video card to run perfectly, you will be able to have an astonishing level of eye-candy even on a relatively old computer and even on a Virtual Machine! Ubuntu alone could never provide such beaty without Compiz and a fully working 3D video card.
Geubuntu is designed to become a completely community based OS, with the goal of a better and perfect integration between E17 and Gnome. We need programmers, coders, hackers, anyone able to modify certain aspects of this distro so that it can be a better and less confusing User experience. Geubuntu will always be there to have E17 become easier and much more complete for any user trying it out, even newbyes. A great number of experienced users love and use E17 every day but Geubuntu brings to each user the ease of use typical of a normal Ubuntu distribution in an E17 Desktop Shell, filling some E17 faults with various Gnome tools. As time passes and E17 becomes ever more complete, Geubuntu will just integrate less and less parts of Gnome in E17: this will just speed up your system even more!
Geubuntu is a project hosted and hatched by the great Italian initiative: InTiLinux Projects. In its space Geubuntu finds the hosting services for this Website, plus its forum and the space to host the distributions, for free, just because InTiLinuX believes in us. The Geubuntu project therefore thanks InTiLinuX so much for its great and constructive initiative.
InTiLinuX Projects has been created by the popular Italian Blog InTiLinuX and provides for free many vital instruments for Open Source programmers out there, such as an svn and trunk set. If you?ve got interesting Italian programs needing the instruments to grow or if you just have an interesting and innovative idea to apply in the Open Source and Gnu / Linux community, than don?t hesitate and visit InTiLinux Projects.
