To enhance the GNOME desktop to provide a complete enviroment useful for several different task, we're going to include lots of other software written to enhance the GNOME desktop (e.g. GNOME fifth toe)

GNOPPIX is using discover for hardware detection. Kudzu has got problems on several machines and doesn't detect some kind of hardware correctly. Discover is more reliable and platform independent (thus we're able to create a PPC version based upon our ix86 packages list, which would make synchronization between both platform versions quite easy).

We've got several mirrors (as providing large isos is always a question of traffic limitations). Take a look at the download section for further details.
