Release Notes: This version is based on Ubuntu Intrepid (8.10) and Linux kernel 2.6.27. Compiz Fusion is used for 3D Desktop effects. Most of the Ubuntu Multimedia packages are included. GNOME 2.24 and KDE 4.2 are available. The Ubiquity installer is used, but has not been extensively tested, so backing up before installing is recommended.
Release Notes: This release comes in Gnome and KDE flavors, and both include the Powua Client and Powua Tutorials. For example, you can realize an animation with Blender, and directly from ArtistX upload and render it on Powua. It is based on the Debian Live Initiative and includes the 2.6.22 kernel, Gnome 2.20 , KDE 3.5.7, and about 2500 free multimedia software packages.
Release Notes: All the ArtistX infrastructure and software were updated to the new Debian Live code. Software that is not packaged for Debian or not in the official archive (especially for video and 3D production) is included. The look and feel were revamped using suggestions from media professionals. KDE and GNOME applications now look nearly the same and dark, relaxing colors are used.
