Well, the crew at The Linux Action Show are putting their money where their mouth is and have have announced they are building their own Linux distro. Development is still in the very early stages, but the decided name of the distribution will be Jupiter Linux and it will be based on Ubuntu’s Gutsy Gibbon and the Gnome desktop environment. If your interested in watching a distribution unfold in front of you, head to the development forums. Or if you want to contribute to the development, post your skills on the wiki.
Anyways, the world still needs the killer Linux desktop, and maybe this will be it!
