Smile Flouran's OS

I am glad to announce that after year of constant work, I have created an OS (more like a variation of Ubuntu), which I call Mundus OS, that is an extension to Ubuntu which is easier to use for a new Linux user. Mundus OS can install Windows programs, mount Macintosh dmg's, install the packages of other non-Debian Linux distributions, and is meant to be "out of the box".
The Sourceforge page is here:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/mundusos/
The Wiki is here (which talks about the OS in full):
http://mundusos.wiki.sourceforge.net/
The screenshots are here:
https://sourceforge.net/project/scre...roup_id=268055
I should note that the desktop and themes and updates are all Ubuntu, I have added my own software and some other softwares which make Ubuntu much easier to use for a newbie who is transitioning from Windows or Mac to Linux.

Note: This OS is not at all meant to replace Ubuntu, only to promote Ubuntu and the Open-Source community.

I should note that the OS is in its Beta stages....

I assume that Mprime is part of the package.

I see that you have LiveDVD as an option....
Knoppix only seemed so so.

Nope. Sorry. This project was completely separate from my math work. However, octave (which is like Mathematica) comes pre-installed. I will include Mprime in version 1.1 in October. Thanks for the reminder

Yep. So you can test drive the OS without any change (or harm) to your hard drive.

Not wanting to be too pedantic, octave is a MATLAB clone, not Mathematica.

You're right. But the idea is similar to the concept behind Mathematica, right?

Yes, sort of, although MATLAB/octave is far more numerical oriented than Mathematica --- its default type is 'double'.
