I dont really know if I missing something with that Beatrix distro, but 
from the screenshots it seems that its just unbuntu ?

I dunno there is just something about fedora that I like cant quite put 
my finger on it.

I do really like unbuntu, but I dont need the gnome part of it, as I 
only ever use ssh on the box currently trying to get fc4 on working 

So many distro's its hard to work out which is the best/most ideal one 
for the purpose of what I am using it for.
