Distro Hoppin`: Blender-boot 1 Suzanne Beta 2

Linux

Distros, distros, distros... Glue a bunch of software together, add your favorite themes, name it "Frank OS" and that's it, you've got your own operating system. Obviously, I'm joking, I know it's quite a lot of effort that needs to be put into such a project. But, from a really high-up birds-eye view, they all can seem a bit... similar. Most of them are general purpose distros, aiming to please a large segment of users. Some focus on a smaller target, like audio artists, pre-school teachers or network administrators testing how penetration-prone are their setups.

...and then there is Blender-Boot, which is a whole OS wrapped around ONE application: the awesomely versatile Blender 3D content creation suite. The idea itself is enough to raise some eyebrows and gain a good amount of attention. But is it really necessary to have a separate OS for one purpose?

Now, with the introduction of libreboot, a truly open source boot firmware, the dream is close to fruition. The $730 laptop is a bog standard piece of hardware but it contains only open source software. The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
