    Smile Mundus OS (My own OS)

    I am glad to announce that after year of constant work, I have created an OS (more like a variation of Ubuntu), which I call Mundus OS, that is an extension to Ubuntu which is easier to use for a new Linux user. Mundus OS can install Windows programs, mount Macintosh dmg's, install the packages of other non-Debian Linux distributions, and is meant to be "out of the box".
    The Sourceforge page is here:
    https://sourceforge.net/projects/mundusos/
    The Wiki is here (which talks about the OS in full):
    http://mundusos.wiki.sourceforge.net/
    The screenshots are here:
    https://sourceforge.net/project/scre...roup_id=268055
    I should note that the desktop and themes and updates are all Ubuntu, I have added my own software and some other softwares which make Ubuntu much easier to use for a newbie who is transitioning from Windows or Mac to Linux.

    Note: This OS is not at all meant to replace Ubuntu, only to promote Ubuntu and the Open-Source community.

    Linux Mint + Wine vs Mindus

    discuss?

    (not trying to be critical of your hard work, just asking the obvious question )


    what method do you use to install non-.deb packages?
    what does mounting apple dmg files get the end user?

    Lol. No problem. Yes, I have WINE preinstalled.

    I use Alien. But in a subsequent version of the OS, I will make the process much more easier.

    If someone is migrating from Mac to Linux, and has their files in a dmg image file, they can access them easily. Furthermore, mounting an Apple dmg is the closest thing to installing a Mac application under Linux (actual installation would require Apple's closed source APIs ).

    I should note that the OS is in its Beta stages....

    I answer some of your questions on the wiki for my OS:

    Username: ubuntu
    no password
    Once you have entered the username, then just press enter for the password.
