At midnight central time, January 14th 2014, the Gigastrand OS will be made available for free download.
Some things you might want to know before you download:
The download comes with a 14 day trial of Codeweavers' Crossover. However, if you need the full version with 30 days of support, you can get it via e-mail for a $1 processing fee in the Gigastrand Store. This software is normally $39 from Codeweavers.
There are a few updates available. Namely VLC and Crossover. Both are available in the Gigastrand Software Repository. These updates didn't make it into the image before release.
If you need the latest version of Opera, we have included that in the repo as well.
A list of installed software and support links is available. Gigastrand OS Support Resources includes links to support sites for most of the software installed on the system. More is being added daily. On this page you can also see what is and is not supported. As a rule of thumb, pre-installed software is fully supported; repository software (not pre-installed) installation is supported (but not the use of the software itself); and anything else is not supported. Software listed as unsupported in resources is in testing to be added to the repository.
For the next few weeks, we will be working on the support site, documentation, and Gigastrandos.com
