Is it final?

Well folks I had to make some changes to PC/OS, obviously for cosmetic as well as functional.
I had to skip Ia_Ora due to a rendering bug and I wasnt able to track it down to fix it so I went with Nodoka colors which is a slightly less shiny theme but its functional, works and works well the Window decoration stayed the same.

The functional part is this. I wanted to make sure I went by the trademark guidlines set out by Mozilla so I took out some of the extentions in Thunderbird and in Firefox. Media Player Connectivity is installed by default because of media player functionality as well as Google Gears and Lightning is installed by default in Thunderbird but those are the only ones. If I didnt do this I would have had to change the name from Firefox to something else as well as Thunderbird so it was easier this way.

People have asked for either TrueCrypt of Cryptkeeper. Since TrueCrypt doesnt rely on gnome libraries and apps like CryptKeeper does, TrueCrypt is it.

In OpenWorkstation to avoid packages that may confuse the masses I took out the media creation tools and they will be offered on the Media Creation Pak that will ship with every copy of PC/OS OpenWorkstation. So if you are buying OpenWorkstation for your developers and secretaries you wont have to worry about excessive packages. Software Development tools will remain bundled with OpenWorkstation as well as Eclipse and Gambas.

VLC 0.9.3 will probably ship with both releases. Im having to strip quite a bit out of OpenDesktop and may have to strip out WINE but whatever I strip out will be available via Feature Paks
