Ubuntu Muslim Edition 10.04 (Sabily)

Filed under
Ubuntu

Ubuntu regularly spawns all kinds of different derivative distros. Some are officially supported and some are not. Last week I looked at Ubuntu Satanic Edition. This week I decided to review Sabily 10.04, which is the Muslim edition of Ubuntu.

What’s New In This Release

This distro is based on Ubuntu 10.04, so all of the new features from that release are available in Sabily. Here’s a brief sample of those:
F-Spot replaces the GIMP
PiTiVi video editor added
GNOME 2.30
New themes: Ambiance and Radiance
New wallpaper
Linux kernel 2.6.32
New nVidia hardware driver
Gwibber social media application
Faster boot time, with a different look and feel on the bootsplash screen
Ubuntu One adds contacts and bookmark sharing
Ubuntu One music store integrated into Rhythmbox
Ubuntu Software Center 2.0
