Preliminary work is now beginning on XXCE 7 and XXCE 8!

I am once again striving to find a way to have a robust operating system fit on a 700 MB CD. To do this, I will attempt to base the OS on a minimal Ubuntu, using the Ubuntu Minimal CD.

To minimize the bloat, I will not include huge workhorses such as OpenOffice or LibreOffice. Instead, AbiWord and Gnumeric will be the default office apps. In addition, your favorite web-based office apps will also be included.

More info coming soon. Stay tuned!


UNEX 3.0 32-bit is available!

UNEX 3.0 is based on Ubuntu 11.04. It includes multimedia codecs (except for libdvdcss2 and w32codecs) and all software and security updates as of August 18, 2011.

UNEX 3.0 includes Google Chrome, Mozilla Thunderbird (replaces Evolution), and Rhythmbox (replaces Banshee).

I can personally verify that the iPod Touch 4G will work on here. I personally tested the OS with my iPod Touch 4G, and I was able to play my iPod library from Rhythmbox. In addition, syncing work as well.

Work will soon begin on a 64-bit version.
