Announcing SnowBird Linux 19 (New Dawn)

Posted on: 07/08/2013

I’m pleased to announce the first public release of SnowBird Linux named New Dawn  based on Fedora 19SnowBird Linux 19  (New Dawn) has been around for a while as a closed corporate project intended to replace Windows desktops but in recent months I have cleaned/tweaked the distribution to make it suitable for public release.  SnowBird Linux 19 (New Dawn) includes a selected mix of free and non-free software from Fedora, RPM Fusion, Russian Fedora, Remi, Adobe, Google and Open Printing repositories.

SnowBird Linux 19 (New Dawn) includes all the goodies released in Fedora 19 plus the following features:

  • Tweaked Gnome 3 Desktop
  • Clean theme with flat icons
  • LibreOffice 4.1
  • Bundled audio and video codecs
  • Web, social and telephony applications
  • Productivity software
  • Graphics and development tools
  • Useful utilities and accessories
  • Live CD with optional installer

SnowBird Linux 19 (New Dawn) can be downloaded from SourceForge.

Note: Snowbird Linux is a remix based on Fedora but is not officially supported by the Fedora Project. Bundled software are the property of their respective owners and subject to their respective licenses. The released version is for x64 bit systems and I have no intention to build an x86 version in the short term as most computers are 64 bit capable and my build servers are x64 based 🙂
