A new Begining

After an very long break, we are back at it again. We are glad people are coming to the forums for some help, I have to admit I haven’t been checking them a lot after the holidays (like maybe once a week eek!) I promise to check everyday now. As you know we are doing a new release in gnome now. Still no time stamp on that (expect one soon). We are implenting a few neat new ideas. Not to mention polishing Xpress Linux up a little. We really believe we will be able to push Xpress Linux even further with Gnome interface. It seems so much more customizable and expansive. We do however have some mock up shots for everyone courtesy of Mike,

As you can see clicking computer, up in the left hand corner you are presented with a menu that displays basic info about the computer and a few categorized applications.

Also we are working on a new applications menu that allows you to view thumbnail shots of items in certain groups.

Hope this holds everyone over, sorry about the slow posting period. But since we are back in full production expect a few posts a week.

-Enjoy

Download Mirrors

Due to heavy traffic, Dreamhost had to limit the number of connections to our download server. I’ve set up several mirrors, which should relieve the problem. Going to the download link will now redirect you to a page where you can select a mirror to download from. To avoid problems in the future, please don’t link directly to any files. Instead, link to our download page.

Updates

Okay well we are growing insanely fast after we got on Distro watch roughly 24000 hits on the site already! We have 6000 downloads in about 6 days (about 1000 downloads a day!) okay enough statistics.
***NEWS***Well im getting a beta copy of the pre-release which has the improved menu system, the correct source lists, and fixed labeling issues. Expect screen shots soon.

Also Mike is going to give the site a new look soon, we feel it is getting too cluttered and we are moving to a new organized format (possibly a meebo widget also!).

BTW the Ads by google on the side are there to produce money to start a CD operation to start sending you guys out CD’s of Xpress Linux (free).

Keep coming to the site for info guys

as all ways send all the bugs and or just general email to either [email protected] or [email protected]

Post Beta

Download is right here
Well you folks are as loyal as it gets, in three days we have around 347 downloads! Okay now onto a newer topic, What About The Final Release?

Im so glad you asked, well we have a lot on our plate to finish in roughly 20 days, but so far we know we must, fix all the labeling issues, integrate Flash and Java out of the box, Documentation, main menu configure, and a repository. A lot of that is done already. Currently I am running it for Q&A and havent found too many issues, so its looks now that we will be releasing on December 30th. And if we are lucky maybe before Christmas.

On a second note we also have the full name for the release, Xpress Linux Black Advent. Also we have a small surprise for you all about the next release (sometime after Christmas) , we are making Xpress Linux in Gnome!

Current Screenshot

Desktop

Well, there it is a screen shot from pre-alpha (thanks mike). Notice the awesome watermark in the wallpaper. As you can see we went with a windows feel and I think it turned out nicely (dont freak out if you dont like the layout over the next two weeks im making some other layouts). Can you believe one week since we started the project we have a screen shot ready for everyone. If you have any suggestions email us at ([email protected] or [email protected]) its still in very early stages of development. Expect to see the beta sometime at the end of November!!
