Ubuntu Furry Remix

A team led by Russian WikiFur administrator Shnatsel have released the first beta of a furry-themed version of Linux distribution Ubuntu.

The collaboration includes a boot skin, several wallpapers by Kosh (Alexander Faolchu), icons, a Metacity themes, a GIMP splash screen, and eight sets of smilies. A full GTK+ theme and logon screen are scheduled for future builds.

A prior effort to create such a distribution — Furbuntu — appears to have stalled in 2008.

why is there no new version? It would also be great to have a live CD / DVD

There was a slightly newer version, but that probably doesn't count as "new" anymore.

As for why... sanctions? Shnatsel's spending his time on Rust now (and may be a pony). Not sure about the other team members.
