It shows off a bunch of fun things you can do with Ubuntu Gnome desktop.
( Especially entertaining was the conkycolors and lua scriptings for conky. I never imagined that conky could look that cool. It's certainly improved my conky (of course only after liberal editing of the configuration conkycolors produced. :) )
One of the things that I found that may be of interest is 'Elementary' project (of sorts). The idea is take Ubuntu and Gnome and turn it into something else.
A Emailer application written in Vala that integrates into Ubuntu properly. Pretty fantastic stuff. And guess what? It isn't Evolution!! :D I have my doubts about it, but if it can handle IMAP correctly then it may be the miracle I've been looking for.
The whole project is pretty interesting and they are not hammering anybody over the head that it's open source. They are not forcing compiles or anything like that. They provide nice binaries via PPAs and that is pretty cool. It's a refreshing attitude.
I am not to hip to the whole dock thing, but it can be moved to the side then I can live with it. :)
I figure if anybody wants to fork anything they should at least join something like that that is future looking. As long as it maintains binary compatibility with Ubuntu with everything then I think it's very cool.
BTW.. I love PPAs. Just love them to death. The whole "Launchpad" thing is pretty dubious, but PPAs are a work of genius.
