Its here the RC2 version of PhoenixOS BlackHawk with 5 year lts. Enjoy and please let us know how you like it.

Special thanks to John Pisini for helping me, as there was no way I could push these releases out this fast on a 1 man team! Also thanks to Ray Blackwell for letting us use his space!

Phoenixprecisefinal

It was a slow ISO download.
First attempt after 8 hours it crashed. Next attemmpt from scratch and it downloaded in 7 hours at around 60 LN/sec.
I installed from a flash stick with image using Kubuntu imagewriter.
The live desktop loades quickly.
Instgaller was copy of Kubuntu 12.04 , which I also previously had installed multi-booting.Incidentally the Kubtu ISO download only took 50 minutes from their mirror.

Install was same as Kubuntu , and went in smootly.

Kernel 3.2.0-30-generic-pae
Runs well on ext4. Standard Grub-2 bootloader.

Nice selection of default apps.
I would like to see a USB ImageWriter like Kubuntu, as it looks that DVDs will soon be obsolite.

Your default Classic Menu widget suites me fine.

Not sure why your download was so slow, I've downloaded it a couple of times at 900+KBs. Never had a slow download from my site to date.

Thanks and glad you liked it. I apologize about the download speed, not sure why it took you so long, I am in Florida and it only took 1 hour and a half to download.
I have been thinking of doing the USB ImageWriter but not ready to eliminate DVDs yet so will most likely do both for now, I will discuss it with John.

We apparently still have a few more tweaks to make before this RC2 becomes a final; so appreciate any testing and feedback you can offer.

Have you considered zsync as a method to update the system when you have just made minor tweaks. The attached link shows how I did the same for Klikit during it's development. Lots of download savings to be made.

What does everyone think. I know Ray has a few issues that we are going to try to tackle but what about everyone else?

I just took a client off Klikit and installed this for her, she loves it. I have it running on one of my laptops, as well, and have had no trouble with it at all. Did I read here somewhere that you have a kde3 version planned? Thanks,

~mark

I am working on a KDE3/Trinity based version but so far Trinity R14 is still beta and breaks a lot. I have had it running great one day and then the next an upgrade breaks the whole system. It is going to be really nice when done but R14 isn't quite ready for everyday work. When it gets a bit more stable I will release a beta here that people can play with.
