I had already described PicarOS here. I remember how impressed I was with this little project based on GalPon MiniNO. I was so impressed that I ended up installing that system on my laptop and have used it regularly ever since. Any time someone sees it, they ask me what that beautiful "program" is. I have installed it on 3 different computers, too.
But some days ago, my brother let me know that PicarOS had undergone a major overhaul. PicarOS 2013, codenamed "Diego", took the tradition of beauty and functionality of PicarOS to a whole new level.
Yes, visually speaking, PicarOS is a winner! Just show it to a child and you'll see the favorable reaction this system causes in the little ones.
If that is not enough, Diego comes with Compiz preinstalled. Thus, if your video card is 3d-capable and you choose to activate desktop effects, you will have even more eye candy to dazzle your kids: wobbly windows, desktop grids, fire writing on the desktop--you name it!
If you are still not convinced, please take a look at this video and see it for yourself:
What's next? Downloading it and testing it, of course! Since MiniNO PicarOS 2013 works also as a live DVD, you can use it without installing it or changing anything to your regular OS! You can find it here. I already installed it and noticed several improvements in comparison to its previous version.
Can you imagine how much children could benefit if all schools had this incredible OS installed in their computer labs?
