OpenGEU 8.04 'Luna Crescente' Beta Live CD

Filed under

OpenGEU, previously known as Geubuntu, is described on the project's website as “a complete and fully functional operative (sic) system based on Ubuntu.” What OpenGEU does is blend elements of the GNOME desktop environment, with E17 (E16 is the stable version) and Ubuntu.

You know at the outset that any distribution based on Ubuntu (and lord, aren't there a lot of them) will be stable and have a vast software repository available to its users.

But, to make your distribution stand out from the rest, you need to do more than just give it a new wallpaper and a fancy name.

E17 is that something more.

In OpenGEU it includes a desktop shell, comprised of a Window Manager, a full set of libraries, a desktop and a collection of modules and applications.

In live CD mode OpenGEU took an eternity to load but once I got to the E17 desktop – wow!

From There to Here (But Not Back Again)

Red Hat Product Security recently celebrated our 15th anniversary this summer and while I cannot claim to have been with Red Hat for that long (although I’m coming up on 8 years myself), I’ve watched the changes from the “0day” of the Red Hat Security Response Team to today. In fact, our SRT was the basis for the security team that Mandrakesoft started back in the day. In 1999, I started working for Mandrakesoft, primarily as a packager/maintainer. The offer came, I suspect, because of the amount of time I spent volunteering to maintain packages in the distribution. I also was writing articles for TechRepublic at the time, so I also ended up being responsible for some areas of documentation, contributing to the manual we shipped with every boxed set we sold (remember when you bought these things off the shelf?).
