Its not an Operating System, its a Distro of Linux <_<

But a good looking one all the same

Soooo.... what your saying is that Linux is NOT an OS?

I also toss my hat in to the ring of hopefully chosen beta testers.


No, I mean that its a Distro of Linux instead of an entirely new Operating System made from scratch

Then i was right..... Mac didn't make their OS from scratch.

"Mac OS X is a Unix-based operating system[4] built on technology that had been developed at NeXT through the second half of the 1980s until Apple purchased the company in early 1996."

I might have missed something here. I love this idea heavily, but is it RPM-based, DEB-based, Slackware-based, or neither?

Aye, Linux-based. But what means of package managing will it use? Hence my RPM vs. DEB vs. Slackware vs. (something else) question.

Did you use linuxfromscratch.org for building your own custom Linux?




Thanks adrynalyne for the PM.

Ah, alright. I'm hoping for a Debian base since I like Debian-based distros (familiarity... Although that's not to say I haven't tried Slackware or RPM). Just please let it not be a Gentoo-style "compile from source EVERYTHING" distro. I'd hate to compile each and every thing.

sudo apt-get install domicile, anyone?

lol! It's not going to be like that. Like I said in the first post, it's going to be very simple. I'm working on a new install system that makes things simpler.

By the way, this is going to be a new Operating System. Meaning you won't be able to run my OS's exclusive apps on other distros.

This is still the first stage. So, expect a lot of changes and things to get better.

It looks like you have GNOME running. I thought you were just making a special distro, not a whole new OS...

But a new install system? Sounds good. Will it support terminal and GUI though?

yes of course. I glad you all like the screenshot and what's coming. I'm not going to comment anymore on this because the OS is still under development and changes will be made.

You will hear word later as the development of this Operating System progresses.

Thank You :)

Gnome, gnome-menubar-applet, and AWN.


I am interested in seeing a new packaging system. That in itself would make it great, especially if you can easily port packages to it.

Ja, so generally a nice GNOME setup. Now if only AWN had more options on effects (such as emulating a Mac OS X zoom effect or so and amongst others)... By the way, the idea of having the menubar already present is a real plus, man.

New packaging system... Yeah. Same. Especially if it'll beat yum and apt-get.

If you can manage to make this OS customizable and user friendly I think you can take this real far and it might even add a buck in your pocket, if it's good ;).

Eagerly awaiting for one of your Beta versions.

This is something I forgot to ask.

There are two versions of my Operating System:

1. GNOME
2. KDE 4.1
Right now I'm working more on the KDE 4.1 than GNOME.

How do you all feel about the two?

I'm not going to post the KDE screenshot because it's so different and it will probably be the one I pick for the Operating System. If I choose GNOME, then I will have to change it over to it.

Which of the two do you favor and why?

Also, there will be a new dock. I used AWN and Global Menu to start it out, but will have a new dock on the final release and new menubar (optional) for people who like it).
