"Symphony OS, among the latest Linux distributions receiving
quite a bit of attention by the general public, has released their first
BETA candidate (BETA 1 Preview 1) after a series of ALPHA releases.
Rather than using GNOME, KDE, Fluxbox, or another one of the many
desktop environments Symphony OS has created the Mezzo Desktop
Environment to allow for a visually attractive and easy-to-use
interface. In addition, this Knoppix-based distribution packs a punch
when it comes to its standard set of packages and user friendly features."
