Hi all, hi Ali,

there's a project that might be interesting for some of you.


It's new for me and was introduced to me by the Xubuntu users mailing


PS: Perhaps somebody knows what FLOSS software is most close to MS
Paint ...

It will install a bundle of FLOSS software to make all kinds of arts and
add a customized menu to provide a better workflow. I don't know current
Ubunut Studio [1], 'MS Paint' for sure will not be installed, but
usually the most common software Linux artists use.

Thank you Ali :)

I dislike an important part of Ubuntu's policy, OTOH I like the approach
to introduce Linux to newbies, so I guess I will clean my hard disks and
continue maintaining the current *buntu release on my machine too.
My main Linux still will be Arch Linux, but for an alternative, second
install I was thinking to switch to Debian, now I'll stay with *buntu,
most likely Ubuntu Studio, perhaps Debian will become a third install,
but I experienced that off the many Linux installs I've already
installed, I'm only able to maintain two installs. Hm, perhaps I should
contribute something to the next LTS.

I don't join the StartUbuntu team, if I should contribute something,
then to Ubuntu Studio, but I'll forward it to the Ubuntu Studio mailing
lists. Perhaps the StartUbuntu project is less known.
