    Thank you very much for your feedback. I hope to have a beta ready to annoy people with inevitable bugs very soon. :)

    RE: Join the Nua Lae Project!
    I understand your concerns, and I appreciate the feedback. I'll try to answer each question in order: Gnome 2 will be used as sort of an anti-Unity until Gnome 3 is more mature. In a future Nua Lae release, we will likely be switching over to Gnome 3. At the moment, Gnome 3 just isn't very easy to use or customize, and isn't quite suitable for distribution to general users, in my humble opinion. One big thing that will set Nua Lae apart is its choices for default apps. Docky will be replacing the bottom Gnome panel, Chromium will be replacing Firefox as the default browser (although Firefox will still be on the Live DVD), Thunderbird will replace Evolution, VLC > Totem, QBittorent > Transmission, and the list goes on. The default theme and icon set will be modified versions of popular existing projects, tailored to follow Nua Lae's scheme of appearance. I also hope to include small post-install scripts and programs, like automatic hardware driver installation, automatic Compiz-enabling if the hardware allows, and an interactive "Introduction to Linux" that will show new users around the basics of Linux, Gnome, and Ubuntu. Since it will be a community-based distribution, Nua Lae will only grow more unique as it progresses.

The goal is to create a sleek, beautiful, functional, and user-friendly desktop for Linux newcomers and veterans alike. Nua Lae will include Gnome 2 by default, and will bundle many useful programs and new defaults while trimming down on excessive package bloat. Powered by an up-to-date kernel and presented with a unique look and feel, Nua Lae won't be your typical distro, but it will still retain the familiarity that has made Ubuntu so successful. Nua Lae is a very young project, still in its alpha development stage, and is in need of creative contributors.
