Distro lokal asal Samarinda. At last, i'm able to annouce that the next generation of penaOS is release, penaOS version 0.8.
Why would i call it a new generation?
started from this version, penaOS contains no more ms logos (thanx to Jonathan from linuxfreedom for the advice) . Still, i retain the familiar look of XP, with the hope people who use penaOS will not be hesitated to try.. it's the same look, you see?
In this version, i added two powerful software :
* Skype, to enable the user to communicate all over the world wiht everybody
* Wine, well we know that MS is still the king in the jungle of software, most of the people use it. So sometimes there are software that can only be run under Win. That's where Wine comes in. with Wine, you can use Win-base software under linux (well, not all of it, but most of them:) )
Berikut petikan dari pengembangnya: cuma mau menginfokan, saya coba-coba mengoptimalkan hardy dengan
menggunakan remastersys, hasilnya saya kasih nama penaOS
penaOS dibikin dengan tujuan memudahkan mahasiswa (dan masyarakat
akademis pada umumnya) buat menulis bibliografi.
feature utamanya sih integrasi openoffice, firefox dan zotero. nah,
zotero itu plug in firefox buat nulis bibliografi, tampilan mirip
saya remaster dari hardy, karena nyari yang LTS heheheh
selain itu, ada dropbox, chm reader, gyache dan codec multimedia
lengkap. kalo ada waktu tolong dicoba ya friends?
ini lagi bikin versi selanjutnya, kayaknya saya bisa masukin skype dan
ukuran tetep 1 cd aja.. ga boleh lebih
bisa dilihat di
pena-os.blospot.com dan penaos.linuxfreedom.com
mohon masukannya. thx
penaOS is a linux distribution that aims to help people to write scientific articles. Basically it integrates openoffice with zotero, a plug-in of the browser Mozilla Firefox. Zotero is a plug-in to manage the reference you have, just like endnote or refman.
PenaOS is built on the stable Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. The old version of Ubuntu is used because we prefer stability in building the base of penaOS. PenaOS also has the complete set of multimedia codec, so you will be able to play most of the multimedia type with penaOS. Why is this important? Because making scientific paper is not only a matter of scientific ability, but also about mood.
After a long waiting, almost a year i think, the first version of penaOS released. The first released version is penaOS 0.7.
In this release, penaOS based on Ubuntu 8.04.3 Hardy Heron include the following software :
* GNOME Desktop Environment
* OpenOffice 2.4
* Firefox ( with plugins zotero, downthemall and fireFTP, along with bookmarks of medical journals)
* Balsa (an email software, integrated with GNOME)
* GIMP (image editing software)
* Gyachi (a yahoo mail client)
* Wireless driver manager (for managing windows wireless driver in penaOS)
* All the multimedia codecs from Medibuntu (so you can play many kind of multimedia files and media while making your papers :) )
