Hello everyone! Dropping in to give you all the link to download the iso for DescentOS 3 Alpha.
Right now, just the 32-bit version is out, I will be working on getting it on 64-bit as well, so expect that soon.
Not a lot works, like I left the sound applet because it wasn’t scaling right with the actual panel itself, and wouldn’t be movable sometimes, so I left it out until I can get it to work. I’m also going to point out some other things that just aren’t finished yet, but will be by the time Beta comes out.
1. The ubiquity slideshow’s broken, it’s not going to affect your installation, but it does look weird. Disregard that for now.
2. I’ve noticed some of the theming can mess up seemingly at random, but the thing is, it’s only the icons that change. I’m working on a fix for that as well.
3. This “Ubuntu Kernel” is quite buggy so far, and installing drivers, even with jockey, is an adventure right now.
Keep in mind, this is ALPHA, it’s not supposed to work right just yet, so if you want to give it a test, feel free! You can report bugs at our semi-official bug report thread on the forums. I am working on adding a bugtracking service and reimplementing documentation, so look for that in the future as well.
On another note, please visit our new shop to get cool DescentOS gear. All proceeds will go toward funding further DescentOS-related projects. We even have a beer stein, you know that’s just cool.
