Still in the spirit of everything free, we have in stock some new Linux DVDs, free for those who are ready to test the proverbial waters.

Top on the list is UBUNTU 10.04 SIXPACK (MULTIBUNTU)

Ubuntu recently rolled out the new version 10.04 “Lucid Lynx” release. Today we bring to you six great Lucid Lynx variants on a single-sided, double-layer 8.5GB DVD.

Boot this DVD to experience its Live Boot functionality, have a feel of the classic Gnome based Ubuntu without installing anything on your PC. Double-click on the Virtualbox icon on the Live Boot environment to have a feel of the KDE based Kubuntu, the Mythbuntu PVR system or the legacy hardware friendly Xubuntu.

If you are still looking for more from the Ubuntu siblings, ISO images of Lubuntu and Ubuntu Studio are included in the DVD.

ALTERNATIVELY

Each of the six great picks included in the 6 Pack DVD could be obtained as seperate DVDs;

Ubuntu : Named after the Southern African ethical principle “humanity towards others”. It is a computer operating system based on the Debian GNU/Linux distribution and is distributed as free and open source software with additional proprietary software available.

Ubuntu Studio : ?A multimedia editing/creation flavor of Ubuntu. It’s built for the audio, video, and graphic enthusiasts or professionals. It contains a suite of the best open-source applications available for multimedia creation. Completely free to use, modify and redistribute. Your only limitation is your imagination.

Kubuntu : An official derivative of the Ubuntu operating system using the KDE Software Compilation instead of the GNOME graphical environment. It is part of the Ubuntu project and uses the same underlying system. It is possible to run both the KDE desktop (kubuntu-desktop) as well as the Gnome desktop (ubuntu-desktop) interchangeably on the same machine. Every package in Kubuntu shares the same repositories as Ubuntu. It is released regularly on the same schedule as Ubuntu.

Lubuntu : A lighter, less resource hungry and more energy-efficient non-official variant of Ubuntu, using the LXDE desktop environment.

Xubuntu : An officially recognised variant of Ubuntu, using the LXDE desktop environment.

– Mythbuntu : A media center operating system (OS). It is based on Ubuntu and integrates the MythTV Media center software as its main function, and does not install with all of the programs included with Ubuntu.

    1. Hello Isaac, i do apologise for the hitch. The contact form is up and running. I do not think the six pack comes with all that, it's just basically a collection of 6 Ubuntu variants with virtualbox incorporated into the live environment for you to have a feel of some of the variants. You can also decide to burn the ISO images on DVDs.

      I will send a mail to your mailbox shortly.

    I used mtn's 3gig night plan, it took 2 hours 26 minutes to download 763mb at an average download speed of 89.2KB/s.
    The download was done using the official torrent file, i considered using the direct download option but i feared it would crash along the way.

    1. I really dont know how much relevance Red Hat enterprise still has in the enterprise world, but it seems to be a standard of some sorts and, of course, it's not free. But the closest to it would be Fedora which is free and they are from the same stables. But i believe any Linux distro has the capability to act as a mailserver. Just my opinion, i do not have much Linux experience.

    1. No, Ayo, the offer is still on. Use the contact form to send your postal details or if you will rather come pick it up. This is the preferred mode, moreso you will be entitled to at most 4 DVDs.
