Kiwi Linux 12.08
Jani Mosones has announced the release of Kiwi Linux 12.08, an Ubuntu-based desktop Linux distribution with many popular extras, such as browser plugins, media codecs, archiving tools, etc, included by default: "After exactly two years of neglect I released a new version of the Ubuntu remix with Romanian, Hungarian, German and English languages included by default. It is based on Ubuntu 12.04.1, and keeping in line with the traditional goals of the project, it targets Linux newbies who find some of the standard Ubuntu applications lacking or who are taken aback by anything too unfamiliar. It also targets lazy people who would otherwise change about the same things on a vanilla Ubuntu install. So it features the Classic GNOME 2 desktop, Chromium, VLC, Pidgin, Flash, multimedia codecs and the rar and p7zip archive format handlers."
