PC/OS Server System 8.04 b1 released

This release is a test release of PC/OS Server System 8.04. It includes all the latest and greatest from Canonical as well as my own features. Some differences exist.

Postfix has been removed. This helps lean up the server install and gives the basic system. This was done to appease users who may use a commercial e-mail server or want a different e-mail server altogether

Firefox removed. For the server ONLY Firefox has been replaced by Epiphany. Epiphany is great for basic web surfing as well as for the browser based interfaces included in PC/OS Server System.

Mono has been removed. This was done by request of the users. For development PHP, Perl and Python has been included, OpenLDEV has been included by request for programming. For the final version I may include Glade for interface design.

For the final release I plan to include scripts to install things like PostFix and MySQL server and other server based features. Also different shells such as csh and ksh will be included to increase familiarity for users coming from UNIX based systems.  The server system will keep the Tango icon theme as well as use the NewBe theme.  No, I promise in the final version I will use the default and not Pink.  K3b also replaces Brasero in the server version.  MySQL, Postfix and other features will be included in a PC/OS Server System 8.04 Feature Pak which will be downloadable at the same time as the final release for those that want local media and not have to do a download from the internet.

You can get Beta 1 from the download section.
