News are that CCux Linux 0.9.9 has been released today on Monday, 04 August 2008 , this time as a DVD ISO as compared to previous version 0.9.8 released 2 years back .
Amazingly there are no public test releases for this version , so I wonder if it`s a bug-fix release of 0.9.8 with some major updates?
This release is reported to sport Kernel 2.6.26 , KDE 4.1.0 ,Gnome, XFCE and Fluxbox as Desktop environments through the installer.
Talking of the Installer this distribution was a total disappointment regards to installer in previous version.
The developers are promising that the installer and the whole installation process has been overhauled this time with major improvements. Hope these work as they promise as I had to try installing the previous version almost 4 times with no success.
Also reported on their website that the current version is available in English too once again.
CCux Linux is claimed to be designed for desktop use and for inexperienced users but my bitter experience with the previous version makes me little paranoid to get this version and even try it.It was a release in haste previously and I hope the history is not repeated once again this time.
I wonder if somebody will be ahead of me to try and review it or do I have to do it myself and know how it works this time with so many promises being made by the CCux Linux project.
