    I have to admit i like the design, it has the simplistic feel of gnome 3 without leaving all desktop design paradigments of the last 20 years behind.

    Though i fully intent to test it in a virtual machine ... Pity its based on Ubuntu, i vastly prefer rolling release distros these days.
    Might be nice for the linux machines i maintain for friends and family though, simplistic and static is real good there.

    Do you use any rolling release distro apart from Arch or Gentoo and their derivatives? Frankly, there aren't many options out there. Also, I don't count Debian Sid or LMDE to be rolling release.

    I remember reading about turning OpenSUSE into rolling release through a few simple steps, though I never got around to trying it. It is called Tumbleweed if I recall correctly.

    Tumbleweed is similar to Fedora Rawhide, if I am not mistaken, i.e., not exactly a conventional rolling release distro.

    Nope, it's a rolling release. Fedora Rawhide equals openSUSE Factory.
    You just need to switch your repositories to the tumbleweed version and run zypper dup.
