Finaly, I'm back to the project

Cos I dont have anything other to do, than to complete it.

Quote: from the forums:

"And after six months, no one if I'm not online is not make anything :(

Cool, let's start from the beggining, I was been in a hospital with my wife, for a very long time, now she is in heaven, and I'm back to release Shilosh as soon as possible
I have only one favor, when my love is gone
To make shilosh available to the ppl for free, to brake down the Microsoft monopol, as you know, our little concurency Lindows.com failed their mission, and release their Lindows, for price, very big price, if I'm a end user, I will choose MS, easy to use, easy to install and no so easy to support, but this is other question. MP3.com with their stupid Linux failed. Now is our way to show, what we can do. I hope, that you're ppl, will be with me, to complete it this task."

Some notes about Storm SAS

Storm SAS is taken from the old and very good Debian based Linux Distribution Stormix 2000. SAS is a System Administration Suite, for easy configuration, maintain and support linux server. Now if someone want to run SAS on his system, it must download all the files form Storm SAS. For more infomartion about SAS features visit Task - Shilosh OS SAS. This task is not started yet, but you can use the old, unmodified Stormix SAS.

Ports 0.2.0 Release

Yeah, 0.2.0 is release, deps is particulary added, GNOME 1.x is fully added, GNOME 2.0.0 need code clean, KDE 3.0.2 and many more additions and changes. Now and the bad news, I split ports in few directories, cos is very hard, for one man to maintain all this folders, and all the files (ports maintainers is still needed), and for this I split all directories to /opt, /x11, /games and /base.

Some changes to Shilosh base

CenterICQ, Motor and his dependecies are moved from Development and Net to base, it will be included in every base distributions.

CenterICQ - description:
Centericq is a text mode menu- and window-driven IM interface that supports the ICQ2000, Yahoo!, AIM, MSN and IRC protocols. It allows you to send, receive, and forward messages, URLs, SMSes (both through the ICQ server and e-mail gateways supported by Mirabilis), contacts, and email express messages. It also lets you set your own and fetch others' away messages, and define external handlers for incoming events. You can mass message-send, search for users (including the extended "whitepages search"), view users' details, maintain your contact list directly from the program (including non-ICQ contacts), view the message history, register a new UIN and update your details, be informed upon receipt of email messages, automatically set away after the defined period of inactivity (on any console), and have your own ignore, visible, and invisible lists. It can also associate events with sounds, make log of events, has support for Hebrew and Arabic languages, and allows arrangement of contacts into groups.... read more
