Head over to the forum for the latest news on updates and features.
With huge thanks from the BlenderArtist community, the people over at Blender.Org and the people over at Ubuntu. And Eppo, over at Blenderartists for helping me make the download script for linux.without your support Or software this could not have been possible.
For a long time now Blender artists have been having to put up with operating system made for the "general public" filled with application you dont need and not the ones you do.
What I have created is an operating system specially tailored for your needs, easy to use, lightning fast (64% faster* renders compared with a tweaked version of windows 7)I got this huge speed by taking the default Ubuntu 12.04 OS and stripping it down to the Kernel and rebuilding it for speed!
It has full support for both AMD and Intel chipsets with both ATI and Nvidia GFX cards supported,and a huge range of wireless network cards.
It is VERY easy on your systems resources so you dont need to worry about multitasking jamming up your computer.
I have put everything in it that a 3D modeller will need and nothing more, you have a superb image editor, the latest and greatest version of blender which automatically updates itself to the latest version. customised web browser. A screenshot utility. Terminal and the synaptic package manager for any other applications you can think of.
