I'm using Super OS
(formerly Super Ubuntu) 10.10 with Gnome. It's basically Ubuntu with all the extras, such as Nvidia/ATI drivers, mp3 support, flash support, and all the other proprietary bits that you normally have to download and configure yourself already installed for you. VLC, Chrome, Skype, WINE and a bunch of codecs are preinstalled as well. The basic intent is to give users the kind of experience that they are used to expecting with Windows, right out of the box.
Sounds a bit like Mint, you can download an ISO with codecs and non-free software or one without. Is that Gnome 2.x you got running?

(I have a Vista laptop I can use as well, but the ATI drivers suck for Oolite. Even running the latest modded drivers the stars and nebulae just render as fuzzy squares)
I don't like it very much either. I have an extra IDE HD that I put in my old Dell Dimension (a dual core pentium 4) machine and had Ubuntu 12.04 on there which was working and very much usable (with the MATE desktop installed, of course
), then I upgraded to 12.10. The OS isn't doing well: the CPU use is through the roof, slugglish performance, and terrible display artifacts (now granted I have an old ATI Rage Ultra Pro with a "whopping" 64 MB, but Mint 13 has no problem with it, and neither did it's "parent" Ubuntu Precise.

Honestly, I don't know whether I'm using Bash as my terminal or not
I had to create the .bash_aliases which now looks like:
Code: Select all
alias oodebug='nohup python ~/Gaming/Oolite_Folder/DebugConsole/DebugConsole.py & exit'
