Only drawback is that I home record with Boss Br 900 cd recorder and there is windows/boss software on line for making it easy to add the drum part via the laptop and I cant down load to linux.
This makes adding drum parts laborious to our music.
Pablo do you know of anyway round that?
Would your version of Liniux be superior?
Im interested.

Hi, thanks for ur message
About the BS Recorder theres a simple solution
http://theironlion.net/blog/2009/07/...no-pad-jaunty/

For drum machine on Linux, i Recommend TerminatorX like drum machine
A better Ubuntu version for musician is "Ubuntu Studio" that comes with settings special for art workers, 3d digital production and Djs and musicians...

About the "version" Vega is focused on the daily work Pc user, who chats, surf internet and work with documents, download videos and end user activity.

What Tor does, i use public proxy servers, to hide ur original Ip walking around the world to despite the origin of your web request. I know that in the last versions of Firefox for Windows, Tor doesnt work properly, but on linux the version available is real stable.

Thanks Pablo;
I'm interested in trying it.
I'm buying a second computer soon (used, from a friend).
My existing computer still works but has some issues.
I could set it up and try it out on my current computer.
I don't like Windows and have often considered LINUX but
I don't have the know how.....yet!
Much appreciation for all your help.

Hi Kuzdu ( curious name, we have a command on linux called kudzu to "discover new hardware setup" )
About the know how, no worries, nododies was born knowing linux.
I think this project became big, and im happy for that, but dont worry, ill try to give the best explanations to ends users, after all I supposed that in the website will be technical forum to give support.

My "other machine" is an Ubuntu Linux server machine.

Yeah, I'm a 'puter geek, but that isn't necessary.

If you want my opinion, if Ubuntu Linux was what everyone started out on, Bill Gates would still be working out of his mother's garage.

just chiming in, here.

Good luck with it, Pablo.

Theres no doubt about your opinion, if you talk about "innovation"

Im talking about freedom...
Free as in freedom, means go the people, and make their lives easier within technology free of some secret stuff...no more, no less...

thats why im rebel...

Hi Pablo,
I just come across topic post this evening and I would like to thank you for everything that you are doing. I really enjoyed watching your video and I am looking forward to downloading this linux operating system. I was a little bit familiar with open source software and after you explaining it to me better I would really like to get setup this way.

I do dream of a better world, and open source software free to all driven by us the people and not private corperations is the way to go.

There should be no such thing as pattenting inventions and ideas to help humanity and using that pattent to supress humanity... we live in a shared world and ideas and information should not be bought or sold to the highest bidder. Just because someone else has an idea before you shouldn't mean that they own that idea or thought, we should all share ideas and grow and better ourselves as human beings should.

love
smat

Default Re: Time to liberate our computers in a massive way

Hi all
I couldnt post last night because i am working hardly on Vega. So this is an update of the upcoming. i supposed that the system will be ready for Monday if not on Sunday.

Some issues about Vega 1.0 beta

Codename: Alex
As u know on geek jargons, theres "codenames" to give a "secret name" to each project.*I.e the codename of last Ubuntu is "Karmic Koala". So the codename for
this first version of Vega will be "Alex" in recognition of the work of Alex Collier.

The software included
Internet

Mozilla Firefox ( web browser )
Emesene ( Msn chat client )
Pidgin ( multiprotocol IM ( including facebook chat )
Miro ( for download movies, and tv shows, with rss suscription)
Vuze ( a powerful bit torrent client for download stuff of any kind )
Video downloader ( a tool to download directly to you machine any kind of video from famouse video sites like yutube, vimeo, blip.tv ,etc)
Skype

Office
OpenOffice ( alternative to Ms Offic with support of Office 2007 formats )
Pdf reader
Thunderbird mail client ( like outlook )

Multimedia
Mp3 and cd player
last.fm and other online player service
shoutcast ripper
video converters
DVD creator
DVD CD writer
Multimedia center ( as the *dows feature )


Look & Feel
Elementary tools ( simple, different but very easy to use...)

So this is the news...
keep on working...
regards
P.

Hi all and Pablo,

First I just want to change the 512 GB to a 512 MB, cause if your puter has 512 GB...I WANT IT

I have a laptop and the last time I installed Kubuntu, I was really happy with it. But I went back to windows because of some drivers and apps that I didn't find or didn't work.

Jjajjaa, yes i have two machines one with 2GB RAM with and AMD Sempron 2800 and a Dual Core Intel 3gz with 1.5GB of Ram and both runs perfect with Linux..

Yes, unfortunately Kubuntu really "sucks", the best Kde desktop on earth is, openSUSE so far...
Vega is based on GNOME 2.28 adapated with Elementary Tools to make the experience more easier.

About drivers, you can get more drivers if you use non oficial repositories like medibuntu and getdeb repositories...

As i said, my dream is not say the people "leave behind Windows" i still use windows for music production offline, and djing in some situations, but the purpose of this desktop is replace and give more secure access to the internet .

As Alex Collier says, such a kind of "dimention of knowing"
As an speculation, after the release of Vega, will be a lot of work to do, hope to be in the high state of the circumstances

regards
P.
