Startcom Linux has (w/Clustering out-of-the-box)

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on November 21, 2006 10:18 PM
If you go to StartCom Linux's site you will find a distro that is taylored for Multi-media.

Press release here:
<a href="http://www.startcom.org/?app=14&rel=18" title="startcom.org">http://www.startcom.org/?app=14&rel=18</a startcom.org>

And it does Clustering for more power (built=in).

Does anyone have any experience with this distro?

I like Gwneview for Photo management and they were using something else so I dropped the idea of installing it... but, it looks really interesting!

I was hoping that StartCom would combine and integrate LTSP features (OR would migrate to Ubuntu vs RPMs and use those repositories as their own repositories are rather limited)! Ubuntu, the Multi-media selections, CLUSTERING out of the box, and LTSP would be a killer for Schools and Education environments that do a digital photo lab these days!

You only have to be aware that DVD play is turned on by default... meaning those poor folks in the USA can't use this distro (or they have to know how to disable the DVD player).

Also - you gotta wonder if Yellow DOG is doing something with this for the PS3...

only the hard drive space in the PS3 is too small, hmmm, can you us a larger USB hard drive on the PS3?
