New Project: Unity

I’ve been working on a new project the last few days.  We’re calling it Unity.  What it will be is a new Linux distribution that takes an incremental approach to desktop Linux.  It will provide a central core and use the mklivecd scripts that PCLinuxOS uses and it will provide a base from which to build just about any desktop you want out there.

Hopefully, this building block approach will work for us.  Currently, we’re operating behind closed doors.  Soon though, we’ll have some kind of public face to this thing.  When we do, I’ll post follow-up information.

Those of you that follow me on the web know that I recently gave up control of MyPCLinuxOS, the community projects site for PCLinuxOS.  I cited personal reasons for giving this control up.  One of those personal reasons was to become involved with this new endeavor.  I hope to help make this into something great!

    Unification through splintering to yet another distribution, huh?

    Depends on what you define as splintering. For us, the voice was unified yet ignored.

    I wish all of you in project Unity lots of success. Reading between the lines it would eventually become a TinyMe with repos loaded with packages and metapackages that would make it into a personalized distro for each user. If that is the case, it will certainly be something to watch out for in future.

    For now, I will continue to support PCLinuxOS wholeheartedly as I have done over the past 6 years, enjoying your contributions and that of other current and past developers. I want to thank you for the efforts and work you put on these past years. It is greatly appreciated. Good luck with your new project.

    Mike
