Kool, I remember giving Greenback cd's to friends a few years ago.
Glad to see Dave's spin is back. Downloading as I type.

GreenOS is a personal Fedora Remix i make, here is a rough list of some of the software installed.

Office
Codecs (should play just about everything except realplayer stuff)
Deluge (torrent download)
NNtpGrab (usenet download)
Pan (news reader)
Devede (create Dvd fillms etc)
Gparted (partition manager etc..)
FFmpeg (that supports flv conversion as well)
Imagination (slideshow creator)
Gimp (image manipulation)
Games (not the usual basic ones)
Frostwire (download music)
xchat (irc)
Plus loads of other stuff, the aim was to actually have a usable system from go for most commonly used stuff..;)

Hi Dangermouse

You should call it a Fedora Remix. A spin is a official variant, hosted in http://spins.fedoraproject.org. Informal community variants are called remixes instead.

Hi

I checked the kickstart file and it just has a listing of packages, how are you doing all the rebranding and other changes?

I rebuilt generic-logos/release,fedora-bookmarks, backgrounds,ffmpeg rpms etc.., but the kickstart (what you mean)was generated from the live dvd as i wanted to show all the installed packages/deps and doesnt include the gconftool commands etc...

Guess i should make that available too ;)

Yes. That one would be more useful.
