:: WHAT IS DYNE:BOLIC ?
Dyne:bolic GNU/Linux is a live bootable cd, containing a whole
operating system that works straight from boot, without the need to
install or change anything on the hard disk.
If you like and want to have it on harddisk you can simply copy the
/dyne directory on your computer: the simpliest installation ever!
Dyne:bolic is user-friendly: recognizes your hardware devices (sound,
video, firewire, and USB), and offers a VAST range of free software
applications for multimedia production, audio and video manipulation,
sound composition and synthesis, 3D modeling, photography, peer2peer
filesharing, web browsing, desktop publishing, word processing, cd
burning, email, encryption, remote conferencing, funky games, a world
atlas navigator and even more.
Advanced features include: a complete environment with the most advanced
multimedia applications available on GNU/Linux, automatic clustering joining
the CPU power between any other dyne:bolic on the local network, capability
to work well on old PC (Pentium1 64Mb) and even XBOX game consoles, support
to save and encrypt personal data and settings on a usb key.
Dyne:bolic is shaped on the needs of media activists and artists to
promote free speech as a tool for the production and not only the
fruition of digital and analog informations.
It takes birth as a grassroot effort to spread free software and the
spirit of sharing information and knowledge.

: THIS IS RASTA SOFTWARE !
This software is about Resistance ina babylon world which tries to
control and limit the way we communicate and we share informations
This software is for all those who don't want to afford the latest expensive
hardware to speak out their words of consciousness and good will, still
offering a complete operating system with more features than some other
proprietary system affected by viruses and full of spyware.
This software is free, Jah Rastafari Livity bless your freedom!
You should share this software for the good of yourself and your
people, respect others and let them express, be free and let others
be free. You are welcome to redistribute dyne:bolic in any way you
like, to your friends and neighbours, to anybody who needs or is just
curious to try, as you wish.
The roots of Rasta culture can be found in Resistance to slavery. This
software is not a business. This software is free as of speech and is one
step in the struggle for Redemption and Freedom. This software is dedicated
to the memory of Patrice Lumumba, Marcus Garvey, Marthin Luther King, Steve
Biko, Walter Rodney, Malcom X, Mumia Abu Jamal and all those who still
resist to slavery, racism and oppression, who still fight imperialism and
seek an alternative to the egemony of capitalism in our World.
