if you have downloaded the gOS iso file you notice that its just over 700 megabytes,if you want to sqeeze gOS on to a cd then delete the "bin" folder from the iso file and you end up with a iso that is 683 megabytes, i did this to gOS_1.0.1 and it worked fine, warning:if try open the cd in windows it wont work but the cd installs perfectly.

It shouldn't matter what it's burned onto. Besides, your CD burner should support overburning, at least a bit.

edit: What does everyone think about gOS? I was thinking about downloading ...

What WM does it use? etc..

It's basically a simplified (is that even possible, LOL) version of Ubuntu with E17 as WM. Which means it's pretty. It's a very new distro as of now and I think you'll have to wait some time (as the OS comes preinstalled on some Walmart computers I've heard) to hear what users of those have to say. I tried it briefly, looked quite good, but abandoned it as I don't like "easy" distros. :wink:

well the highest capacity cdr,s i have found are 700 megabytes, as for gOS ,its ok if your want a os to surf the net and read your emails. if you want to try it yourself go to www.thinkgos.com/ and download the iso., thers also a few demos on youtube: http://youtube.com/watch?v=IpHrRc1hcKc
