Default Thinking of trying out couple of distros...

Anyone here using (or used) PhoenixOS or Symphony One 2008.1? Would love to hear your experience with either (good or bad)!

Hi and welcome,
Phoenix OS according to their website (quote) "This the official web page for PhoenixOS, a new OS being developed by two college students...... It was first conceived in December of 1995"
on their announcements page? None since 6-5-98.

I can't find a download link on their site either. In other words .... I'd give that one a miss!

SymphonyOne 2008.1 ... acording to http://linux.softpedia.com/get/Syste...ne-36802.shtml it is "Based on ubuntu 7.10 with all the latest updates."

As Ubuntu is now at version 12.10 I would give Symphony a miss too.

Why not go for Ubuntu 12.04 (stable & 5 yrs support) or the latest version 12.10?

Hope this helps?

Richard.

I think this is the Phoenix being referred to?

Seems like another limited resource distro though and like Solus has been suffering from same.

Unless there's a specific reason for wanting this, I too would be inclined to stick with something a bit more mainstream such as the regular 'Buntus or at least a one man band with a history such as Korora or Zorin.

DistroWatch shows Symphony's status as discontinued.
