Most of this (for me anyway) is an "I didn't know that"

Thanks Jeff.

Sorry, but I really do not have much idea about how much is Linux being used in India. By large, Windows is quite popular in India... though places where technical assistance is available, Linux must be used. But again, really no idea.

Thanks for the link Torres. As can be seen, Windows is highly popular than Linux.

We're actually developing one called Gizmoid because it will work on mobile apps as well as PC's. It will have a default home page which can't be changed (TSA of course), Gizmo wallpaper and the Ask toolbar. Should be very popular.

Well, we had considered E17 but then realized that a certain Bodhi Linux was already doing a pretty fair job with this already

Thehehe thanks

The most important thing when making a derivative is standing out. Don't want to get lost in the masses of projects out there already.
