Mandriva based 238 MiB Live CD lives up to the SAM-2007 origin.
It is sleek, boots up fast, has its own Browser named Web or is it NetSurf.
It’s package manger is called smart but has a limited number of packages listed.
This is good for a newbie to understand the inner working of a system that is really working and it is more than a base system.
The surfer is basic and has its own lack of cookies.
I cannot highlight a line and change the font colour (I am booted now with it but not rooted!) right now.
Hence, the font is in black.
I would have given it more marks / points if it had kept below 200 MiB so that I could have it in my shirt pocket mini CD.
It has openbox and number of other window mangers included in the smart package manager.
I would prefer this to be called the Mini Version but keep it under 200 MiB should be the aim.
I think guys / girls in the developer suite should develop this Unity (Call it Manchester United -or it’s city of origin – to satisfy the football fans) into a more robust Light Weight category and then the Middle weight category and never Heavy Weight (but slow) like Mandriva and Suse.
Should take some cues from Peppermint and Element and decide when and where to dress it up for the next party or is it the next release!
It has root permission unlike in Ubuntu derivatives (which is a sad lack in spite of many derivatives of Ubuntu).
Overall it is a good distribution and I cannot find anything negative.
Now is the time to go up-staging and dress up for the party.
Thanks for your effort.
Follow the track laid down by PCLinux which is my Gold Standard and become its healthy rival.
You have your own package manger to increase your repository and talents.
Think of an O.E.M version like Untangle.
Then you are on the road to success.
Your Net-surfer is the key to success.
