    LinuxICE3 to become 'Drivn'

    OpenICE was always supposed to be a bunch of apps that fill in the current gaps for linux based carpcs. Maintaining a distro is hard and takes a lot of time and resources. We've been able to streamline the process a bit, but it's still not something that I think OpenICE developers are interested in doing long term.

    Nextabyte, a long time sponsor of the project will be using OpenICE stuff to build a free distribution that would have been LinuxICE3 called 'Drivn'. Nextabyte is sponsoring the servers and web resources for this new distribution which lifts a lot of load off of myself and others who've been volunteering money and hardware (thanks Tidder!).

    In summery, LinuxICE3 becomes known as Drivn and OpenICE won't be developing it anymore (only the underlying packages, ie nGhost, etc). Nextabyte will develop Drivn.

    In other news, OpenICE 2.0 will be moving to the new MeeGo UI framework. I've started a ubuntu lucid based repository here:

    Does it have to be called that? I'm tired of all the stupid misspelled naming conventions happening lately. I can't look at anything without seeing a Z in place of a S or something like that.

    I do appreciate the effort though. Screenshots?

    The only image there is an old one. But that's where they will be moving forward. Also, don't expect anything to work for a while.

    Drivn = Driven

    Question Hmmm...

    Doesn't seem like a lot has happened there since Feb '10, except for a lot of SPAM on the wiki...

    Is there still progress in Drivn/LinuxICE3.0?
