Gigastrand A.04 is being made available through Google Docs

Starting immediately the Gigastrand OS Alpha.04 will be made available via Google Drive through Friday the 19th at 5:00pm CST.

You will need a Google login to access the file.

Some things you should know before I give you the download link:

  1. This is an Alpha version. Use at your own risk.
  2. This disc is not customized with all the graphics like you see in the screenshot. We are still working on that part of the OS.
  3. It will boot live on most systems. It just will look like a standard Debian Live Disc.
  4. We have thus far not been able to get it to install successfully. Though, I would encourage you to play with that feature.
  5. The installer is the basic Remastersys installer. It is not as elegant as say, the Linux Mint Installer so be sure you read everything carefully.
  6. Keep in mind this is an Alpha version and is rather unsophisticated. We have many issues that need to be addressed that may seem like rather silly little problems - and many of them are - but we are aware of them and plan to fix them by the time of BETA.
  7. Finally, feedback is always welcome. This is your opportunity to let us know what you would like to see in the system, offer your assistance, and try out a system at the early stage of development. 
Don't forget to go to Kickstarter and support the development. If we don't make it to $40,000 by this Friday the development will be delayed considerably while we search for alternate sources of funding.

I am posting this link in the hopes that we can reach our goal by Friday and we have a long way to go.

  1. The original ISO became corrupt during upload. I have since updated the link on the blog so if you tried to download it yesterday, it should work today.
