This release is a fully free Ubuntu 9.10 derivative that includes extra software, better multimedia support, more translations and a faster configuration. For this release we used Ext4 for the root filesystem and XFS for the home one, to have a balance between speed and usability. Some important features include a much faster boot process and the ability to encrypt the home directory. All packages were updated, including:

  • Linux-libre kernel 2.6.31
  • Xorg 7.4
  • GNOME 2.28
  • 3.1.1
  • Mozilla based Web Browser 3.5

You can find the 32 and 64 bit installable Live CD images in the download section, along with the source code and torrent files -which you can use to help us by seeding the isos-. Talking about help, you might like to lend a hand in our wiki, hunt and fix some bugs or start hacking with us on our next release, the second in the LTS branch, and the most promising ever!
