About Shift Linux
Shift Linux

Neowin's Shift Linux is designed to give the user an experience of being part of the Neowin community as well as having a simple, easy-to-use Live CD that can be installed to your hard drive, if you enjoy the way our distribution works. Shift is a free, GPL-based Linux distribution that can be freely distributed or modified. There are no restrictions with Shift.

Purpose of The Shift Linux

1) Detection of your computer hardware.

2) Any graphics bugs.

3) Right resolution ( especially on wide screens).

We do not need to know about branding issues at this time. We will fix those for Shift 0.5. Most of the boot-up screen is the Morphix distro?s screen.

For Testing

Shift Linux 0.3 (Gnome) for testing, this is a Live CD based off of Morphix and is Debian based. It comes with many packages as well as Synaptic (GUI for Apt). We will also be releasing Shift Linux 0.3 (Flux) very soon also.








Releases:
2008-03-25 00:00:00.0 Shift Linux 0.6.5 has been released    View
Shift Linux 0.6.5 is the first public preview release of Shift Linux One. The version number may be confusing, but the team is focused on a solid 1.0 release soon. Shift Linux comes in 3 different flavors - GNOME, Lite, and KDE. All three are based on brand-new Ubuntu Hardy Beta 1 packages. We have also added in our own customizations such as the Shift original theme in GNOME, present in 0.5 and 0.6, Shift Linux wallpaper, and other packages not included in the Ubuntu release, such as GnomeDo, as seen in the screenshots. This release is installable. Shift is a free, GPL-based Linux distribution that can be freely distributed or modified.
2008-01-28 00:00:00.0 Shift Linux 0.6.2 is available    View
Shift Linux 0.6 released today. There are three editions released at this time: Shift Linux 0.6 GNOME, Shift Linux 0.6 KDE4, and Shift Linux 0.6 Lite (for older computers). Shift Linux Lite contains two less resource hogging window managers (Xfce and Fluxbox), but will have a full compliment of packages and utilities. All three versions of Shift Linux 0.6 are fully installable (tested and verified). Shift Linux has moved away from its Morphix base and is now based on Ubuntu. This version incorporates Firefox 3 (GranParadiso), OpenOffice.org, new themes, and a tested installer. We've also updated to KDE4. This is a transition version as we move away from Morphix and port over our previous versions to Ubuntu.
