    FreezyLinux

    I'm glad to announce my distro: Freezy Linux
    It is a lightweight derivative of Ubuntu Oneiric Ocelot 12.04, based on GNOME 3.4.1

    As main shell it provides a single panel placed at the bottom of the screen, with a hierarchical main menu, a taskbar and tray indicators.
    For this reason Freezy doesn't come with Unity (2D/3D) or with GNOME Shell. I prefer a classic setup on a pure GNOME environment!


    Applications shipped are more or less the same stock of Ubuntu, main differences are the following:
    Firefox → Chromium
    Software Center → Synaptic
    UbuntuOne → Dropbox
    Tomboy → Zim Note

    It comes with an homemade Gtk3/Gtk2 theme and with Faenza icons, memory consumption is really low.. circa 150mb at cold boot!
    To create this derivative I've used the great UbuntuMiniRemix iso image, Uck tool and a simple script to build and customize the entire image.

    Any feedback is welcome!

    That looks good! I look forward to a stable release!

    This is true. I think this looks better than Lubuntu, however.

    I'll consider giving it a try , but , with Linux Mint 11 LDXE running from a cold boot at 66MBs of sdram ... I mean .. it will be hard to tear me away from that.

    Thanks guys!

    @ventrical
    honestly it seems a bit low considering that a plain session (only virtual terminals and no Xserver) is around 50mb.
    Here you have the full power of GNOME3, a more complete DE.

    anyway for miracles I'm not ready yet

    I have an old PIII 650MHz with 512 sdram that I am going to build, I'll test your OS and do some work with Precise. I want to see how far back I can get the newer Ubuntu Kernels - to run on that older software - why with a few mods here and there , jump a couple of pins etc.. I might surprise myself !

    So far it is a rather elegant desktop. I'm really busy .. but I'll get back at it.

    Nice work !

    I think Freezy will find an audience.

    Looks like you did a real nice job on it.

    Slick.

    Faenza Icons are good. I use the Cupertino brand.

    I also recommend including Minitube. I have an older PC that runs flash terribly from the browser but Minitube makes it appeasing even at 480p.

    nice suggestions.. i'll think about inclusion for a next release.

    I'd like to thank everyone for the support, really appreciated
