mmmmm, usable. Mezzo Desktop is pretty ace. I'd certainly welcome more computers working this way.

Oooh. Looks jazzy. Very pretty.

Looks like OS X and iTheater with a 'lil of Vista Aero going on.

Niiiiicee GUI. Whats that about Linux being command driven?

Don't suppose you'd like to share that wonderful desktop bg image would you Mat?

I'm going to download a linux OS and install it on one of the machines in the top secret data bunker....

Any advice on which is best?

Sheep - please don't use language like "Vista" or "Aero" in my presence again. Disgusting. There is nothing windows-like about Mezzo.. (actually, if you're interested in HCI design, google for the "mezzo graypaper" and check it out - Jason Spisak has some interesting things to say - Fitt was right!)

James - it came on the LiveCD, it's not mine to share I'm afraid.

SFG - Ubuntu, no question.

Cool. How well does it actually work? Does the theory translate into practice? Would you install it on your Mum's computer?

Well, but not brilliantly. Still a beta, to be fair - it's obviously unfinished.

Yes, mostly. Some t's to cross and i's to dot.

Not yet. But then my Mum is an IT administrator. :)

I taught her everything she knows. Wasn't that long ago that we had the "a floppy disk is like a folder, a hard disk is like a filing cabinet" conversation, now she manages all the IT at her school (and these days, that's a lot: interactive whiteboards, wifi, bluetooth printers, remote SAN etc, etc.)

I'm very proud of my Mum.

IT, age & gender; social trends & economic decison-making... now there's a sociology course that needs to happen... :)
