Unity Linux i586 CD is the second alpha release of Unity Linux 2011, a minimalist, but highly customisable distribution based on Mandriva Linux. The 2011 alpha 2 release provides a few big updates to core packages, but the emphasis on the 2011 release continues to be maintaining stability during structural changes that will accommodate a move toward Mandriva repositories. This release shows our new aim which is to provide JEOS (Just Enough Operating System) to give users a core to build upon. The Unity developers are aiming for an Arch-Linux-Like approach to things with future releases.
About Unity Linux
The community-oriented Unity Linux is a minimalist distribution and live CD based on Mandriva Linux. The project's main goal is to create a base operating system from which more complete, user-oriented distribution can easily be built - either by other distribution projects or by the users themselves. Unity Linux uses Openbox as the default window manager. Its package management is handled via Smart and RPM 5 which can download and install additional software packages from the project's online repository.
