Dyne:bolic is a multimedia-centric Linux distribution on live CD. Recording, mixing, streaming, and broadcasting audio and video content is its stock in trade. It has been nearly two years since NewsForge first reviewed the Dyne:bolic 1.0 alpha release. The distro has matured considerably in the intervening time. This is a look at the 1.4.1 release.
In practical terms, multimedia-centric means two things. First, the audio and video applications are first class and configured correctly to run out of the box. Second, a bare minimum of other apps are installed -- no Openoffice.org, no development tools.
