Puredyne 9.10 - Carrot and Coriander
Puredyne is a GNU/Linux live distribution aimed at creative people,
looking for tools outside the standard. It provides the best
experimental creative applications alongside a solid set of graphic,
audio and video tools in a fast, minimal package. For everything from
sound art to innovative filmmaking.

Puredyne is optimised for use in realtime audio and video processing. It
distinguishes itself by offering a low latency kernel and the high
responsiveness needed by artists working in this field.

Puredyne is based on Ubuntu and Debian Live. All packages provided by
Puredyne can be used if you are running this flavour of GNU/Linux.



64-bit support!
(.. and more architectures to come...)

Starting with this release, we are happy to provide support for a new
experimental branch of Puredyne for 64-bit CPUs. We need your feedback
to develop this further, so please get one of these amd64 Puredyne CD or
DVD, and tell us how it works for you!



Yeah, fork me baby!!!
Thanks to broth, the mother of all soups, it is now very easy to make
your own Puredyne based recipe. Get the pan, mix in your ingredients
and cook slowly. Using broth, two new Puredyne/broth based distros have
been released:

 * Puredyne craftivism: a special liveUSB key specially made for the
   craftivism exhibition. You can purchase (at cost) this collector item
   at the Arnolfini Gallery in Bristol, UK. http://www.craftivism.net

 * sidistro: a greek flavoured distribution focussed on privacy and
   anonymity. http://sid.gr/doku.php/agenda/distro

Why not make one yourself? (and impress friends and family with
your very own livethingie)
