This weekend I decided to take the Linux distribution known as gOS 3.0 beta for a spin. The gOS is an Ubuntu 8.04.1 derivative that shows some promise with it’s integration of Web applications. Although they are not affilated with Google, gOS has incorporated many Google online tools into their desktop.

I feel the urge to install it this is what i call useful

What do the applets do? Well, you can add Google RSS news feeds, a Weatherbug report, memory monitors, Google Calendar, quote of the day, and many more. As a Doom player, I particularly liked the Doom memory monitor. They have a picture of Green Marine that shows him taking damage to his health as you use up more of your system memory.
