It has been a long long long journey but we have made progress. The task to improve already good qulity does not mean stop when its good enought, it simply means make it better and with the realese of LuninuX OS 12.10 Quite Quail, you will see how much better it have been made. For a list of software that come with release please look in the live cd directory /usr/share/example-content. Some of the major changes are Opera as the default web browser with privacy plugins, Boxes for virtual machines, Open JDK and many more. You can download the release on the Download page and as an option purchase a USB/DVD media that will be mailed to you.
The site is partially recovered from a catastrophic host error. Most of the data for the site was recovered, there are still a few things missing but overall everything should be back to normal in a few day. The hosting server for the site has been replaced, in addition a little improvement is being done to improve user experience, if by any chance there is a problem with certain areas of the site and I am not aware of it please email me the information, email@example.com, thank you.
I would like to thank Vasanth for the great review over at planetoss.com.

Additional the author provide great advise which have encouraged me to further put more time and resources into the project. Thanks to everyone who have tested, used, suggested, donated, shared and promoted this project.
A bug reporting system has been added to this site to better help everyone with anything they are having problems with, I understand the forum has a “dead” feel to it but I’ll try my best to answer every question and offer solutions.

Great news! I have fix a few things with the previous release and now have a working beta 2 release. A few application are missing but overall the build works well for daily use, the boot animation has been fix, auto login for live session now work with 10 seconds auto load for the user “luninux”, internet connection, and many drivers have been added, more stable software selection, as always the installer is in the “Examples” folder on the desktop and the sideshow has been partially updated. Please download this release a soon as possible, I ensure you that you will love it. Download 12.10 Beta 2 from the Unstable page or use links below LuninuXOS-12.10-Desktop-amd64-Beta-2.iso (amd64 md5) | LuninuXOS-12.10-Desktop-i386-Beta-2.iso (i386 md5)
Please download the 64bit from LuninuXOS-12.10-Desktop-amd64-Beta-1.iso and 32bit LuninuXOS-12.10-Desktop-i386-Beta-1.iso or simply visit the Unstable page to get testing release. 12.10 is very unstable, one of the major problems being you have to manually copy /run/resolvconf/resolv.conf to /etc/resolv.conf so you are able to browse the web and use the internet, with that said, you have to manually type the user name “luninux” and press enter twice to login the live session…This is just a general idea for the next Beta, so please make sure you provide your feedback on any positive and negative findings. Thank you.
A new page has been added under the Download page, it will host the Alpha and Beta release of the project. The Unstable currently has all the testing release but only the current once are link correctly… the old links will be updated soon.
