We are about to start the development but there is a one step left that
must be done first:
If you wish to help to decide a name for the project, that is great. I am
trying to base everything on the 'team work' and 'community decision' even
with the name :) yes, it is my own project but I do hate to be a dictator
and I'd love to share each and everything with the community even with the
simplest things :)
Once the name will be decided (54 votes so far), I shall rename this area:
And then, will set a new project on launchpad with blueprints and the real
fun will begin :)
Mubuntu is taken and even if it is not, I can't use "ubuntu" unless go
through Canonical. We didn't want to go that way, that is why it took so
long to decide for a name but it is okay as everyone is enjoying that :)
Again, the idea is to create a system that is super basic, simple, fast,
minimal and above all, support the NON-PAE machines and oh yes, it is going
to be an LTS release and the biggest advantage is:
This project should be ready before 8-4-2014 which is the EOL date of
Microsoft Windows XP so it will be one of the major players for StartUbuntu
It will be based on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Mini ISO and once 14.04 LTS will be
released, we shall go for version 2 but that is too early to talk about now.
These are the latest updates for those who might be interested :)
I have contacted "Barry" regarding Puppy Linux but his reply wasn't really
promising and it seems he is not interested in any projects as of now. I
might contact him once more but he didn't reply my last email yet.
Remember: "All of us are smarter than any one of us."
