    Have you used ZevenOS? I upgraded it to Raring!

    ZevenOS had stopped development. But, should it be forgotten? It was the only distro that had BeOS look and behaved like BeOS, and it was Ubuntu based.

    Would you guys help Leszek to move forward and develop this rare OS?

    I took out my copy of ZevenOS 4 and upgraded it straight to Quantal. I could've gone straight to Raring, but I wanted an intermediate OS to back it up as a live distro. Now, I ammoving ZevenOS 4 to Raring.

    Mind you, ZevenOS 4 was based on Oneiric.
    Here are 2 screenshots.

    Hope some help would arrive, and Leszek could develop his unique distro!

    It looks like, I must be the only person, who has a upgraded version of ZevenO$ 4 in the world, and not even the developer himself. This makes my ZevenOs+Quantal rare jewel in the Linux world!

    This would be a good way of reviving discontinued distros...and I must be the first person, ever to do that!

    Its a unique distro and it would be a shame to see it pass on.

    If you want to take over development, it can continue.

    And the BEOS feel has something special to those who are its fans!

    It would be much better to have a LTS version to save on upgrade costs. XFCE is not updated that frequently and the latest version of it could always be backported. Its expensive to do a new version every year. I think Lezek Miller would add this would be best for the future of ZevenOS, in that a stable version could be supported for several years.

    The thing is, I am not the developer, Leszek Leszner is. He had developed the BeOS look and other unique applications, which are with ZevenOS 4. I have that and I only upgraded the rest, Oneiric to Quantal, nothing else. If Leszek won't further develop his unique applications, no one else would.

    The xfce4 version in this is 4.10

    I had a little problem and asked Leszek, who showed me how to solve it. He is very kind.
    In this Ubuntu community, there are people geek-savvy, so they should help Leszek to continue.

    Here is a screenshot of ZevenOS+Quantal being installed.

    This upgrade of ZevenOS, I did with lot of love.
    I have also done other upgrades too. Have a look;
    I find most developers of Ubuntu-clones have nothing more to add to their distros, than what they had already done in the earlier ones. I am now upgrading another one. All the way to Raring from Precise.
    I am not wasting time, as I do my work, while Apt does the job. By the way, I am using apt-fast to do that.

    You can install apt-fast through a ppa.

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:apt-fast/stable
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install apt-fast
    With apt-fast, you can download one app, while downloading another app in another terminal.

    Good day!
