  • Description:

    Ubuntu New Generation (ubuntu-ng) is a full LiveCD Linux OS distribution that can be installed on thhhhe hard disk as well. As it's name implies, it's based on Ubuntu Desktop version, which is one of the most popular Linux distributions at this time. Ubuntu-ng is intended for basic linux users, "starters" (migrating from Windows or Mac), and it's also powerful enough to be used for everyday tasks or developing software. It's not just another Ubuntu remasterization; It features a renovated, modern look (includes Beryl desktop effects, GDM theme, usplash, etc) , a tweaked version of the linux Kernel, drivers (including NDISwrap enabled by default and ATI/nVidia drivers auto installation system), and a huge amount of software that we consider the "everyday desktop user's must-have software. It's a distribution also for Ubuntu users that do not want to install all the software Ubuntu lacks every time thei re-install it and are a bit bored of the aspect Ubuntu offers.

    So, it's not "competence", we just want to improve other's work to be more useful. That's Open SOurce philosophy and that's ours.

    The license of the project is GNU/GPL, and we include propietary codecs like MP3 installed by default, BUT we provide an easy way to unistall them just in case you don't want them (using Automatix).

    Other things remain the same as Ubuntu, for example, documentation. Packages pre-compiled for Debian/Ubuntu are compatible. Support can be obtained at the Ubuntu community, and just mailing us for basic questions.

    Ubuntu-ng will be distributed in 1 Gb ISOs that can be booted from the DVD itself. First release is planned for 1-2 weeks after every stable Ubuntu release (~ 6 months)

    Ubuntu-ng is being developed by Javier Ag├╝era, part of DarkGate Multimedia, and we accept new members that want to help.
