Join the fun and experience a retrospective future.


What works?

Most things.

The .iso image should boot (from DVD or USB), the Live session should work, the installer should work and the installed system should also work. Notice the heavy use of "should", YMMV.

Known Issues

The is an alpha project, running on an alpha distribution that was put together by a novice Debian and Ubuntu contributor. That's alpha squared!

Some things are broken, we know that, and you will doubtless find plenty more broken things we haven't discovered yet. The following is known to be broken:

  • Network Manager applet doesn't auto start. The can be worked around by removing the AutostartCondition line in /etc/xdg/autostart/nm-applet.desktop.
  • ISO does not boot on a UEFI computer. LP #1337604
  • Some applets don't use the mono icons. LP #1337577
  • Some theming in the Live session is not correct.
  • Probably a whole heap more.

If you spot any other issues please report them on the project's bug tracker.

We are particularly interested in real computer hardware and printer compatibility.

Is there anything you can help with or want to be involved in? Maybe you just want to discuss your experiences or ask the maintainers some questions. Please come and talk to us.
