Hehe, it is neat though :thumbsup:

 

When I first opened the site, I thought it was an old project but their last release was in August. Probably an older person who had it set up years ago and since it just works, they never managed to update it...

Version 13.0 of the OSGeoLive GIS software collection was just released at the International Conference for Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial (FOSS4G) in Bucharest, Romania.

Quote

 

This distro, sponsored by the OSGeo Foundation, is a specialty Linux offering with a following comprised of data specialists and science researchers as well as mapping enthusiasts. Geospatial technology refers to all of the technology used to acquire, manipulate and store geographic information.

The foundation is a not-for-profit organization supporting geospatial open source software development, promotion and education. The current versions of this distro reflect a refining of the number and types of included software. The focus seems to be packaging only leading geospatial and standard Linux system tools and applications. The emphasis pushes quality over quantity.

The software selections include some 50 high-quality geospatial open source applications installed and preconfigured with sample datasets. You also get free world maps and various project overviews with step-by-step quickstart guides for each geospatial application.

System requirements are fairly forgiving, thanks to the lightweight desktop environment the distro uses. OSGeoLive runs on a broad collection of legacy hardware.

 

 

Thought this might be of interest as it seems to be in the same vein . 😎

Neat stuff but why in the world are they using such an old looking environment? Their screenshots make it look like linux back in 2006 with a 800x480 resolution. They need to hire a graphic design person or someone to show they how to theme.
