Multimedia producers and artists will have the power to fully customise their own tailored GNU/Linux environment on a bootable CD with the release of Dyne:bolicII by the end of the year.
That is the aim of core developer, Jaromil, who says the new system will give users unprecedented flexibility and control.
Aimed at multimedia producers, artists, activists, and content creators, the Dyne:bolic multimedia platform on a bootable CD offers a vast range of software for multimedia production, streaming, 3-D modelling, photo editing, Web browsing and publishing, peer-to-peer file sharing, and networking.
It also includes games and a world navigator. Dyne:bolic is capable of automatic clustering - joining the CPU power between any other Dyne:bolic on the local network.
It can recognise a variety of hardware devices (sound, video, FireWire, and USB) and works on several types of machines from Windows through to "modded" Xbox consoles.
