David Kuntadi has announced the availability of the beta release of Ubuntu Christian Edition 6.0, a distribution based on Ubuntu 9.10 and incorporating a variety of Christian and parental control software: "Ubuntu Christian Edition 6.0 beta release. One problem with the Ubuntu 9.10 release is a bug in DansGuardian, but Ubuntu Christian Edition 6.0, based on Ubuntu 9.10, comes with DansGuardian enabled and fully functional. In addition, the DansGuardian GUI now makes Internet filtering and sharing easy. With just a few clicks, you would be able to share Internet connection to your LAN, with or without Internet filtering. There is a major change in e-Sword installer as well, it now uses WINE stable (1.0.1) instead of WINE development. In addition to the desktop edition, we have also released a server edition.
Ubuntu Christian Edition is a free, open source operating system geared towards Christians. It is based on the popular Ubuntu Linux. Ubuntu is a complete Linux-based operating system, freely available with both community and professional support. The goal of Ubuntu Christian Edition is to bring the power and security of Ubuntu to Christians. The current Ubuntu Christian Edition release supports both 32 bit and 64 bit PCs. Ubuntu Christian Edition covers every standard desktop application from word processing and spreadsheet applications to web server software and programming tools.
Along with the standard Ubuntu applications, Ubuntu Christian Edition includes the best available Christian software. The latest release contains Xiphos, OpenSong, E-Sword installer, and much more.
Ubuntu Christian Edition also includes fully integrated web content parental controls powered by Dansguardian. A graphical tool to adjust the filter settings has also been developed specifically for Ubuntu Christian Edition. These features are truly what sets Ubuntu Christian Edition apart.
"One of the great features of UCE is the inclusion of a popular firewall, preconfigured for parental control of harmful web content."
