Preface:
Since the introduction of Microsoft Windows, computing has become open to the masses. This in itself was a good thing as with general acceptance of computing came open information exchange and connectivity. Windows however, was designed to make money and as such was developed from a business perspective – not a social one. Linux had a similar issue, however, it had one thing in its favour – Open Source.

Open Source allowed Linux to evolve and become whatever visionaries could conceive. From a boring business server, scientific tool, educational device to a functional desktop personal computer. Anything was possible, and still is. Canonicals Ubuntu operating system has blazed the trail in creating a functional stable desktop usable by people with a moderate to high knowledge of computing – the problem here being that 85-90% of computer users fall beneath this level of computing knowledge.

Various projects have been started to address this problem, such as 'Ultimate Edition', 'Mint', 'Kubuntu', all of which are excellent and serve certain purposes. I enjoyed using each and still do, but something just didn't feel right, it just wasn't me. Users struggling with Windows and viruses and spyware etc.. were still dumbfounded and perplexed when trying to deal with a Linux operating system. There was a need for an operating system which was as easy as could be – both from an installation point of view and an ease of use point of view. Something with all the hard work done such as Codecs, Flash and Java. A healthy mix of commonly used and required applications, not a huge clump of programs causing confusion to new users. An operating system with a look and feel pleasant to a majority of new users – not just the enlightened geeks amongst us. An operating system which can easily grow and be tailored to your personal wants and requirements.

Concept:
To create an operating system which would target new users to Linux or computing in general. An easy to install system which is inviting and intuitive to use, enhanced with applications that the majority of users would require on a day by day basis, which could easily be tailored to any individuals needs. In creating this project, we would provide the nucleus of this system and through consultation with the public on our forum, continue to evolve into something that will become indispensable for personal computer users world wide. During this process, we would also like to teach you how to create your own system – Give a man a fish...

Installation:
Burn the downloaded ISO 'image' to a DVD and then boot from the DVD. Alternatively if you don't have an optical drive, you can create a startup disk to USB flash drive and then boot your computer from there.

Known Issues:
If you are installing side by side with other operating systems, you may see a 'mounting' error appear on screen during install. You may need to cancel this message two or three times and has no consequence on the installation. After installation, on restart, Grub will not show your other installed operating systems. Continue loading into Oz Unity. Once in Oz, press Alt-F2 and in the dialogue box, type: gksu update-grub and press enter. Enter your password when asked and that's it.

Feedback:
If you would like to be part of this project, you are more than welcome to do so in whatever form you would like. From a tester, suggester to artist and coder. It should be fun and informative and together we may well just change the world.

Licences:
By downloading and using this system you acknowledge that Codecs, Flash and Java are pre installed and agree to their respective licences.

Og i dansk version:
Forord:
Siden indførelsen af ​​Microsoft Windows, er computing blevet åbent for masserne. Dette var i sig selv en god ting, for med den generelle accept af computere kom åben udveksling af oplysninger og tilslutningsmuligheder. Windows var dog designet til at tjene penge og blev som sådan udviklet ud fra et forretningsmæssigt perspektiv - ikke et social. Linux havde en lignende problem, men det havde én ting til sin fordel - Open Source.

Open Source tillod Linux at udvikle sig og blive, hvad visionære kunne skabe. Fra en kedeligt Business Server. Videnskabeligt værktøj, uddannelsesmæssige enheder til en funktionel desktop-pc. Alt var muligt, og er stadig. Canonicals Ubuntu operativsystem har banet vejen til at skabe en funktionel stabil desktop, brugbar af mennesker med en moderat til høj viden om edb - problemet her er, at 85-90% af computerbrugere findes under dette niveau af computerviden.

Forskellige projekter er blevet igangsat for at løse dette problem, såsom 'Ultimate Edition", "Mint", "Kubuntu", som alle er fremragende og tjener visse formål. Jeg nød at bruge hver i sær og gør det stadig, men noget føles bare ikke rigtigt, det var bare ikke mig. Brugere kæmper med Windows og vira og spyware mv. og er stadig lamslået og forvirret, når de forsøger at beskæftige sig med en Linux-operativsystemet. Der var behov for et operativsystem, der var lige så nemt som man kunne gøre det - både fra et udvikler-synspunkt og en brugervenligheds-synspunkt. Noget hvor alt det hårde arbejde med installation af ting som Codecs, Flash og Java var gjort. En sund blanding af almindeligt anvendte og nødvendige applikationer, ikke en stor klump af programmer som skaber forvirring for nye brugere. Et styresystem med et udseende og følelse som er behageligt for et flertal af nye brugere - ikke kun de oplyste nørder blandt os. Et operativsystem, der nemt kan vokse og være skræddersyet til din personlige ønsker og krav.

Koncept:
At lave et operativsystem fokuseret på nye Linuxbrugere og computing generelt. Er nemt at installere, der er indbydende og intuitivt at bruge, forstærket med programmer, som hovedparten af ​​brugerne vil kræve en gang om dagen, der let kan skræddersyes til enkeltpersoners behov. Ved oprettelsen af ​​dette projekt vil vi give kernen i dette system og gennem tæt kontakt med offentligheden på vores forum, fortsætte med at udvikle det til noget, der vil blive uundværlig for personlig computerbrugere verden over. Under denne proces, vil vi også gerne lære dig hvordan du opretter dit eget system - Giv en mand en fisk ...

Installation:
Brænd det hentede ISO "image" til en DVD, og ​​derefter start op fra DVD'en. Alternativt, hvis du ikke har et optisk drev, kan du oprette en startdisk på et USB flash-drev og derefter starte computeren derfra. (UNetbootin)

Kendte problemer:
Hvis du installerer side om side med andre styresystemer, kan du se en 'mounting' fejl vises på skærmen under installationen. Du kan få brug for at annullere denne besked to eller tre gange og dette har ingen konsekvens for installationen. Efter installationen, ved genstart, vil Grub ikke vise dine andre installerede operativsystemer. Fortsæt læsning i Oz Unity. Når du når til skrivebordet i Oz, tryk på Alt-F2 og i dialogboksen skriver du: gksu update-grub og tryk på "Enter". Indtast din adgangskode, når spurgt og det er det.

Feedback:
Hvis du ønsker at være en del af dette projekt, er du mere end velkommen til at gøre det i enhver form du ønsker. Være tester, foreslå ting og hjælpe med at kode. Det skal være sjovt og informativt, og sammen kan vi meget vel måske ændre verden.

Licenser:
Ved at downloade og bruge dette system anerkender du, at Codecs, Flash og Java er på forhånd er installeret og er enig i deres respektive licenser.

Jeg har prøvet den kortvarigt, og må sige at jeg er ikke til Netbook-desktoppen :wink: men, - jeg bruger jo heller ikke en netbook og gider slet ikke at min desktop ligner en mobiltelefon. Unge mennesker med mobil-telefonitis vil garanteret føle sig hjemme i denne distribution lige med det samme :grin:

På den anden side ser klippet her flot ud. Den fortjener vist at blive prøvet alligevel.

Remember you can choose to log into Ubuntu Classic if you dont like the Unity desktop.
We have since released version 2 in 32 & 64 bit. :thumbup:

Hi Nick
OK, I downloaded it, burned it and booted :eek: :???: I thought I would end on a Unity desktop - but instead I was on a Gnome 2 desktop :grin: :thumbup: (on the other hand, this is the old one based on Lucid)

I have just installed and after some trubble getting it to install danish menus - and installing six-hundred-and-something updates, It's ready.

I haven't had time to use it, just browsing true the menus. I looks fine but, - to be honest also a bit gray with nearly all icons small and with out collors. But every one has their own taste :wink: and themes are easy to change.

There are programs for nearly every need - great for the beginners, but maybe a bit heavy for the experienced.

I'll try using it, but I'll presume every thing is so tested coming from you, that it has to rely on taste and needs, if one choose to use it or not.

:cheers: :red-cheers:
Mvh.
