Url: http://collegelinux.org/

The basic concept of CollegeLinux is to provide you with an alternative, user-friendly operating system and a way to learn more using linux. Whilst maintaining simplicity and a user friendly system, we want to introduce our users to more advanced features

About College
CollegeLinux a new, stand-alone operating system based on Slackware. The aim of this experimental Linux distribution is to provide to RKC students andto the student population at large an operating system which is easy to install and use and which provides an alternative to the traditional commercial operating systems ;) Why Slackware as a base?

As they themselves put it, "The Official Release of Slackware Linux by Patrick Volkerding is an advanced Linux operating system, designed with the twin goals of ease of use and stability as top priorities. Including the latest popular software while retaining a sense of tradition, providing simplicity and ease of use alongside flexibility and power, Slackware brings the best of all worlds to the table. "CollegeLinux can benefit from the stability of slackware now made easy with our user friendly installer and interface.
Features: We are glad to announce the long waited release of CollegeLinux 2.5 ?Obi Wan?.
Once again we did a release taking the necessary time (in this case 6 months) to bring something new, exclusive and never seen within the linux community.

Whilst there is growing trend to release as often as possible, we have chosen to implement some important and innovative features and release when there was something worth your time and bandwidth.

Among our numerous enhacements:

- Full compatibility with Slackware 9.1 ;
- CollegeLinux server robot: install & configure automatically (almost no question asked) Apache, PHP, MySQL, SQLite, Webmin and Phpmyadmin (mysql front end) and SQLiteManager (sqlite frontend) your complete server & development environment;

- CL auto-update engine: slapt-get based(special thanks to Jason Woodward ) integrated with a Konqueror front end. You can now update on the fly every package or the entire distribution.

- Our own Installer substantiall upgraded, more hardware supported.

- Direct connect file sharing, latest kde, openoffice and much more.
