Mundus OS description

Mundus OS is an Ubuntu variant which is easier to use for a new Linux user migrating from a proprietary OS such as Macintosh or Windows. Although the themes and updates are those of Canonical, Mundus OS has the ability to install Windows programs, mount Macintosh dmg images (but not install them, since that would require closed-source APIs), LSB, Red Hat, Stampede, Slackware Packages, and most (if not all) of the media codecs all \"out of the box\".

The provided download of Mundus OS also functions as a live DVD which is always up to date with the current release of Ubuntu (thus, you can try out Mundus OS without any changes to your hard drive). The only difficult aspect for a new user is how to mount and unmount a Macintosh DMG. To mount the dmg, right-click on the dmg file and select the section titled \"Scripts\" and choose dmgmount. After you are finished and you want to unmount the dmg, be sure to NOT automatically unmount it. Instead, right-click on the original dmg file and select \"Scripts\" again and choose dmgunmount.

At this point, you may be asking, \"Why would I actually want my Linux computer to read these files?\" Well, more than 90% of the market is controlled by Microsoft. Another 5% or so is controlled by Apple. Their operating systems, Macintosh and Windows, are widely used by the public.

Developer comments

As a fellow Linux user, even though the Synaptic Package manager provides many useful open source applications, I am often frustrated that whenever I am looking for a specific application on the internet, it only supports the Windows and Macintosh platforms. Also, since I use Debian, many package files out there on the internet for Linux are rpm files (or Redhat Package Manager files). However, in my opinion, the Debian packaging system is superior.

Lastly, when I first installed Debian on my previously Windows-based laptop, I did not have the capability of reading mp3 files and many of the media files out there (including streaming video). All I could play were Ogg Vorbis files (.ogg). It is important to note that I am not saying that Debian is a worthless operating system (with over 25113 packages out there, I would say that it is very popular). I actually am impressed by it; all I am saying is there are some inconveniences that need to be fixed.

Thus, I have decided to take matters into my own hands. As a result, using the popular Ubuntu system, Ubuntu can now install and read many of the media files out there (including MP3\'s, streaming video, mpeg videos, etc.), Windows native files (EXE files), native Macintosh files (DMG disk image files), and LSB, Red Hat, Stampede, Slackware packages! The breakthrough in this is that normally, in order for one operating system to be able to read the natural files of another, the hard disk of the computer must be partitioned in order to contain one or more operating systems. For instance, as a new business venture, Apple has introduced its new computers with a partitioner that enables it to contain both Windows and Macintosh operating systems. I have seen these \"hybrid\" computers at the Macintosh store and they are very unstable and crash often.

Thus, it is not the best idea to purchase one of these computers. You may now be asking, \"Since Windows and Macintosh are widely used by the public, and there many viruses for these platforms, wouldn\'t my Linux computer be infected with those viruses?\" Well, fear not, because any virus is immediately quarantined by the system. Hence, Linux users are not as restricted by the plethora of programs, but now they have an advantage that no other operating system has: being a unifying bridge between all computer users out there regardless of their OS platform. This may be a start for greatly improving the way we think about computers and how we can modify them further in the future.. . SourceForge presents the Mundus OS project.
