Hi, I'm not English speaker and I can't understand which is the difference between the "normal" version and the branded? It's necessary or important install the branded version?


thanks  :)

No, if you are runnning 10.04.1.2 un-branded then there is no need to upgrade to the branded version.
Someone asked me if I could build a version of Pinguy OS for flash development (you can download it here), so I thought while I am doing that I might as well do a updated version of Pinguy OS 10.04 using my logo. There are a couple of things different but not much. I have added VirtualBox video drivers (3D effects still don't work but the driver is working to get a good screen resolution), compiz extra plugins and libdvdcss2 (DVD play back) and fixed the bug with the updater. Plus I have added every driver firmware file that can be added to Ubuntu from the repositories.

The branded version is a big improvement on the non-branded version. Seems to be faster, more fluid, and less buggy (though there weren't many bugs before).  And the extra compiz stuff.... windows that turn into paper airplanes never cease to make me chuckle.

Thanks yugnip. Yeah I should also mention that all of the programs on there are newer. Plus I sorted out the repositories. So yeah, it is an improvement over the old version. But I don't think its such a big improvement that if people are happy with 10.04.1.2 un-branded they should update to this version.

EDIT#
yugnip what is your avatar? For the life of me I can't remember where I have seen it. I am pretty sure its from a game, but could be wrong.

Haha. You have seen it before, but not in this form. I't Bill Crosby evil-ified, which means it's been 'gimped' (that's FOSS lingo for 'photoshopped'). I like the 'horn's' coming from his head. A friend made it and sent it to me as I was signing up here on the forums-- so it stuck.

Hello Pinguy,
Would you tell me what is the difference between the Branded version and the Flash version (besides several hundred megs)?
Could one use the Flash version to run Pinguy off of a flash drive?
And how do you pronounce the name, is it pin and guy  (as in male personage) or pinguy (rather like penguin)?
Anyway, excellent OS and thank you!

The Flash version is for Flash development. So it uses things like Flash 10.1 debug player, Adobe FlashBuilder for Linux, FB4Linux and lots of other stuff all related to developing Flash.

I pronounce the name of the Distro as Pin-Guy but it all depends on where you live, pronouncing it Pin-Gui is also fine.

[totally tongue in cheek comment..no flames please..]

The most obvious and well, exciting thing about the branded version is the extent and exquisite nature of the branded artwork which will enhance the overall user experience.  The artwork additions place PinguyOS firmly at the front of all OS design, leaving the likes of apple to finally see where they have failed to provide true design inspired hardware and software for so many years.  PinguyOS Branded not only pushes the boundaries of GUI design but puts a new mark in the sand for others as a challenge.  Never since the clash of the titans has there been such a powerful struggle of design.   

PinguyOS Branded is what the doctor ordered and administered to relieve all your ills.  With PinguyOs Branded you will rest at night experiencing a sleep so deep and refreshing only baby lambs could understand.

I just have one trivial question. My boot screen and login screen have the lovely Pinguy OS logo, but the MintMenu icon at the top left of the panel is still the Ubuntu logo. Not that I don't like the orangey-red Ubuntu logo, but is there a Pinguy OS logo .png file I can substitute for it in /usr/share/icons...etc. That icon is the only thing missing from my Pinguy OS bliss.
