First looks: FoX Desktop Linux 1
When you install dozens of Linux distributions every month, the first impressions of a product become very important. With FoX Desktop Linux 1, these were a lot better than those of most other new distributions I installed in recent months, so I decided to spend more time investigating this new product. The brainchild of Glauco Zuccaccia from the town of Montefiascone near Rome, Italy, FoX Linux has been in development for over a year. Although the English pages of the distribution's web site are somewhat less fluent, don't let that stop you from trying out FoX - it is certainly one of the more interesting efforts of the past year.
