Super OS 11.10
Available for download as Live DVDs for mainstream hardware platforms
The distro is available for download as two Live DVD ISO images, one for each of the supported hardware platforms (32-bit and 64-bit), which must be written on DVD discs or USB thumb drives of 4GB or higher capacity.
Boot prompt à la Ubuntu Linux
When booting either of the Live DVDs from the BIOS of a PC, you will see a boot prompt that is identical with the one of the Ubuntu Linux operating system. It will automatically start the live system in approximately seven seconds, allowing you to choose between the live or install modes.
Features Unity and a plethora of open-source applications
Unity is the default graphical desktop environment of Super OS, so no surprises here. On the other hand, the distro includes a plethora of open-source applications that are not included by default in the upstream Ubuntu release.
Among some of the most popular ones, we can mention Blender 3D modeller, Audacity audio editor, Google Chrome and Opera web browsers, Inkscape vector graphics editor, MyPaint digital painting software, OpenShot and PiTiVi video editors, Pidgin multi-protocol instant messenger, Pinta image editor, VirtualBox virtualization software, VLC media Player and Wine.
Not a super operating system
Despite its pompous name, Super OS is not a super operating system. In fact, it is just an Ubuntu remix that includes extra software packages and it’s designed to provide users with offline usability.
Unfortunately, it is based on a very old version of Ubuntu, version 11.10 (dubbed Oneiric Ocelot). Because of this, we don’t recommend to install it as your only operating system.
