It's unfortunate. As I understand it, Ikey Doherty essentially rewrote the whole desktop to be more GNOME 2.x like, and it seemed to really work well. Perhaps someone will pick it up, but it's a shame when a good distro is terminated.

Especially Ikey's Distribution.
He was in the process of quite literally revamping the entire project with a new package manager, etceteral, after SolusOS Eveline went EOL.
Apparently the work was far more complicated an undertaking than even he was capable of maintaining after most of the Community slowly ebbed off to other projects and such.
Sad as far I'm concerned considering he knew it be a "make or break" situation and if Anyone could have succeeded, it most assuredly would have been Ikey.
Regardless, the Linuxverse hasn't heard the last of Mr. Doherty be that as it may.
My personal thanks to those who posted the pertinent links as I wasn't aware of the news until logging in here.

The last alpha (7?) was Xfce with the Whisker menu, I think.
