I’ve long been interested in étoilé. It’s a linux distribution built on top of GNUStep, aiming to provide a more modern (read: prettier and generally a bit more Apple-Like) operating system than the GNUStep base. Obviously as a mac user who has switched to linux for its openness, this is a pretty tempting idea.

Anyways, I recently downloaded the VirtualBox image to take it for a test run. Aside from there not really being much software to use yet (making it hard to take for a spin), I noticed this in the system menu. It’s probably somewhat more important to get your character encoding right if you’re going to be all fancy and have accents in your name ;)
