Shift Linux 0.6.5
Shift Linux is designed to give the user an experience of being part of the Neowin community as well as having a simple, easy-to-use Live CD that can be installed to your hard drive, if you enjoy the way our distribution works. Shift is a free, GPL-based Linux distribution that can be freely distributed or modified. There are no restrictions with Shift.Shift Linux is a project that was created by the Neowin community (http://www.neowin.net). Based on Morphix Linux, Shift is Debian based, therefore it has access to all of the software and applications as other Debian distributions.As we developed Shift, we decided to produce different versions of Shift for computers with lighter or more robust hardware configurations. We have produced Shift with Fluxbox as the predominant desktop manager, and Shift with Gnome, for heartier machines. We will also add a version that gives the user the opportunity continue to add different desktop managers as time goes on.The project team consists of members with a wide variety of experiences and talents. Each has contributed in his / her own way. Whether team members have worked on the distribution itself, or the Shift website, their efforts have been dedicated to creating this quality product.What's New in This Release:· Shift Linux 0.6.5 is the first public preview release of Shift Linux One. The version number may be confusing, but the team is focused on a solid 1.0 release soon. Shift Linux comes in 3 different flavors, Gnome, Lite, and KDE. All 3 are based on brand-new Ubuntu Hardy Beta 1 packages.· We have also added in our own customizations such as the Shift Original theme in Gnome, present in 0.5 and 0.6, Shift Linux wallpaper, and other packages not included in the Ubuntu release, such as Gnome-Do, as seen in the screenshots. This release is installable. Shift is a free, GPL-based Linux distribution that can be freely distributed or modified.
