    Is it backed by Canonical or any hardware vendor? I don't see any indicators of that, so I assume it isn't.
    It is great that such young person as Rudra chosen to do something like that, because of all that educational value to him and other people helping him, but I don't think it will become popular, so I don't understand why news spread that far.

    Ubuntu flavors are recognized by Canonical but start up projects can take a few years to attain official status.

    I would rather not spread the news to newbies about brand-new, not-backed flavors until theses prove themselves and stand the test of time.
