    Ubuntu Buddhist Editon

    Is anybody interested in making a Ubuntu Buddhist Edition? I figure we already have a Ubuntu Christin Edition and a Muslim Edition why not a Buddhist Edition. If you are seriously interested in it PM me.

    Erm...why? I believe the major differing points of Christian ubuntu is a bible reader, artwork and an immoral sites blocker. Not sure about the Muslim version.
    What kind of apps/differences were you thinking of?

    You can't.

    Muslim version is similar to CE : custom themes and artwork, web content filtering, a prayer time reminder, Islamic Calendar, a Qu-ran study tool, ...

    I don't understand why people have issues with religious oriented distros/derivitives. As a user of Ubuntu SE, I like the choices available.

    Does any buddhists want an UBE?

    So, this version will only work on top of a tall mountain peak and answer all simple questions with cryptic circular references?

    A great way to "sell" FOSS (or anything) is to customize it to the user. I want to make a LDSUbuntu, but there are no Book of Mormon programs, and Ubuntu CE already did a good job of an overall Christian OS. At church, I talk more about Ubuntu CE, as it has the software a Christian would be looking for.

    +1 for the Buddhist Edition

    I could make a wallpaper/logo or other art work if you are serous about it. I just need a deadline to motivate me.

    People would probably be more interested if you explained how it would be different
