This was a very nice Ubuntu respin.

If you are/were a SE user or no someone that was please PM me or have your friend do so.

In spite of the name or, perhaps, because of it. There were many talented folks contributing to it.

I do not want to see all that effort and talent go for naught.

So, any information that anyone has will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much in advance.

I'm probably not the only one that thinks using any operating system called "stoner edition" is ill advised. o O ( Should I patch these security issues? meh, i got the munchies man), o O ( This new update totally just broke my x-server, but that potleaf boot splash is totally rad...) :)

It is a shame you never had the chance at it. Not a large user base but very active. Some of the artwork was truly world class stuff. Had a very functional and full audio/visual apps selection.

@wilee-nilee
Always good to see you too.

Ever use SE?

Well..
I was going to disagree..
as i know many st1rs who are absolutely brilliant when it comes to coding/computers...

But the fact that this OS is no longer maintained..
kinda puts a damper on my reasoning... :lol:

As far as legality in the state in the U.S. I live in you can get a card for complete legal use, I qualify.

No doubt. It's funny how the human mind works. I liken it to playing darts only when you're drunk. You'll find it exceedingly hard to play sober lol.

My best friend owns a medicinal club/store, in *probably* the same state. :KS

@Ranch hand,

Yeah I saw the list of apps that come with it in a torrent on piratebay, but it had no seeders! lol :o

Yes that was the work for SE1.1 (9.10)

There should be a couple more entries there but they may have been with drawn by the artists.

Yes, that is one way to look at it. Not a bad way either.

Development was, surprising to me, quite robust. They were strong advocates of legalization.

The audio/visual pack that came with it was impressive.

Development pretty much stalled with the advent of Plymouth which somehow really screwed with Remastersys. I should say that Plymouth may not have been the problem but that 10.04 sure was. A number of respins are not recovered yet from pre 10.04.

All of them that I know of have folded but one and it looks to be nearly ready to put out its first release since 9.10. I am very happy about that because it is an exceptional effort too (Zenix - bohdi.zazan is the main mover behind that one - check the staff listing for this forum).

I personally like the login screen that was for 10.04.

Nice logo. :)

I noticed you were from Montana, and a friend just sent me a very touching story from Montana.. Perhaps you already know of it...

Nope hadn't heard that in this remote corner of the state. Interesting but fairly well known for years. The stuff has its uses.

Montana, right now, is rethinking the med system in the state. Seems like a lot of folks have gotten cards that are a little on the shaky side.

Ranch Hand...shame to see the site go too. Some of the guys were from the Ultimate Edition site, whilst others were also on Ultimate Edition Oz...( Google it!)

I'll ask around & see what I can find out.;)

Wow! About given up on anyone.

I have left a couple messages for cell over on the UE forum but haven't gotten a reply. Only guy I knew had the same name both places.

I have been working on learning to make Debian Live CDs using their tools. I have, I think all the art for the unreleased 10.04 edition (my wife uses that on her laptop).

I actually have a simple SE laid out and running based on Squeeze. Just need to learn to make the image. Some sort of permission would be nice to have too.

Feel free to PM me with any info you may find or what ever. You can also find me, and a similar thread at;
http://openubuntu.com/index.php/topic,1333.0.html

Thanks a bunch for your reply. That really was a great community of guys on there.

I have been on the OZ site. Had heard of it. Thought I would look at it after someone mentioned on Linuxquestions that they couldn't get to the forum or website for UE. They were in a panic during TMs latest disappearance. I wasn't too worried, it has happened before.

The OZ bunch look like an interesting bunch too.

One of these days I need to look into UE again and join that OZ forum too. Just to busy working with Debian right now to do much else.

On most other forums (UE for instance) I am known as widget. I really am a ranch hand and that is the name of my horse. She had that name when I got her as a 2 year old.
