PinguyOS 12.04 LTS (based on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS) has been released today. By default PinguyOS uses Gnome Shell in contrast to Ubuntu’s Unity. PinguyOS is a great Linux distro meant for beginners. If you like Ubuntu and Linux Mint and downloads loads of software after installing them, you will love PinguyOS as it comes with a bunch of great default applications that include Clementine, VLC, XBMC along with the regular Firefox, Libre Office.

As said before, it’s a great Linux distro for beginners. If you want to enjoy the Ubuntu with Gnome Shell, you might want to give Pinguy OS 12.04 a try.
