PhoenixOS Roadmap Update

Post  Admin on Sun Jan 31, 2010 12:53 pm

PhoenixOS: Linspire raising from ashes, you could say that Wink

Here is an update as promised:

I have established an updated Road Map for PhoenixOS that I can adhere to.

There will be 4 different versions of PhoenixOS: Hardy, Lucid, Debian, Mini-Laptop Edition.

PhoenixOS FlameHawk (Hardy) 1.0 will be released on Valentine's Day 2010: this was my first project before Debian. This was supposed to have been released quite a while ago, but due to hosting issues: was delayed. I finally got unlimited hosting due to a generous donation from a PhoenixOS user (Thank You!). However; by that time, the packages were so out of date, had to repackage the whole iso again.
I have been using this one on my laptop, as my own os of choice, since its inception.

PhoenixOS Sunbird (Lucid) will be released Spring/Summer of 2010, this will use Kde 3.5.x and/or Kde 4.

PhoenixOS Stealth (Debian) will be released Fall/Winter of 2010 if there is still a demand, many users have sent numerous emails saying they like Hardy version over Debian; so we will see. At the moment Debian still has too many limitations, and the software packages need a better way to stay up to date. Some possibilities we may implement might be the use of smxi. We also have a fix for the Nvidia problem thanks to Bob for finding the lenny fix back in the beginning, from I think it was subslug.

PhoenixOS Hawk (Mini-Laptop Edition:Karmic base) if I have someone volunteer their Mini-Laptop to finish beta, then it will be released Valentine's Day 2010, if I cant then it will be delayed till possibly Fall/Winter 2010 when I have the funds to purchase a mini-laptop for testing/development. Its actually 80% done and many users have tested the alpha/beta with awesome reviews.

Things are definitely moving forward for PhoenixOS and "out of box" experience has reached the level of Linspire, and in some ways even better since its more up to date.

I like to take this time to thank all of you for your support, I started this project as a 2 man team and I like to thank Carlos for his help in the early days he helped me convert Linspire 7 to PhoenixOS at a last minute Change!
Now, Its a solo project with help from the community. Without your help PhoenixOS would have never progressed to where it is now! Thank you!

I posted the following over at Freespire:

"You will have plenty of testers once you post your iso's, so no worries about the netbook version. Why not just release as a beta, and let it go at that???

No one expects perfection out of a beta, and once the bugs are squashed, then you can call it the "gold" release...Wink Smile Very Happy "

I think that you may wish to think about releasing your iso's and let us give them a whirl and help you find and fix any bugs that may be there... Just a thought...

Yeah your right, I'll release the netbook version as a rough beta, and let the community give them a whirl, and post bug reports Wink

So Netbook version will be released as a ROUGH beta on Valentines day as well!
