    Just wanted to personally thankyou for your take on Ubuntu. This is simply awesome. The one issue I did happen to get though was your playonlinux ppa was outdated. Other then that its great.

    BTW I'll be sharing this with a few of my more newbish linux buddies. Hopefully this will make them more confident in their linux kung fu.

    Do you have a website up? I know you have a torrent. If you decide to go ahead with a website, I'd gladly donate to your project. Might I also recommend using squarespace.com for your hosting. They are dead simple and great QoS. You can't beat $8 a month for the service you get.

    No there isn't any website up for the OS (not yet anyway). There's still a few things I want to do with the OS first like de-brand it, have a custom plymouth boot screen and to be able to use Burg (haven't found away yet to use burg and boot the Live DVD) plus I am thinking about doing a 32-bit version as a few people have been asking me to do one.

    Also I just want to see how popular/demand for the OS there is before putting all my time and effort into building a website.

    There isn't any 32bit version because I have a 64bit PC with 4GB of ram and I am never going to run a 32bit OS on this PC.

    All this Distro is, is a custom built Ubuntu 10.04 LTS x64 that can run as a Live DVD or be installed, it has all the added packages needed for video, music and web content .eg flash and java, plus I have done a few fixes as well. like fixing wireless problems, gwibber's facebook problem and flash videos in fullscreen.

    Everything is setup for samba, all you need to do is right click a folder you want to share and add a password in samba using system-config-samba.

    I have added a Upnp server as well so you can share your music, video's .ect with a PS3, XBOX 360 or any other Upnp media reader.

    Nautilus has been changed for Elementary-Nautilus with added plugins so it can get music and video art from the web.

    The default theme is Elementary using ttf-droid font with Docky and a custom Conky.

    Here's Some Screenshots:






    I have added DVB support to Totem for anyone with a TV card that wants to watch tv on there PC but don't want to install a whole program like myth-tv.

    Here's a list of installed program's:

    This is a magnificent take on Ubuntu, usability & productivity. I've been using this OS for about 10 hours now and it's wonderful. The default apps satisfies like more than half of my requirements but I think it will do well for new Linux users. If your going to continue modding it and releasing new versions, you should consider including a app to mount iso or img files(e.g Right click->mount file). Great work though.

    Already built in. Right click on a .iso and select "Archive Mounter"

    Too many applications I wouldn't use , but it looks good if you prefer the applications.

    It didn't work for me when I right clicked a .img file.

    EDIT: I had to click "open with" then select "Archive Mounter" to get it work.

    64 bit is faster than 32 only if there is plenty of ram . In my system with only 1GB ram, 64 is slower .

    Looks like a wonderful piece of work. I am very much looking forward to trying it out in a VM!

    +1. Great argument - absolutely to the point.
