An announcement about Simplicity Linux 15.7 Alpha

Unfortunately, due to receiving a head injury at work, the alpha of Simplicity Linux 15.7 is going to be delayed a little.  Long story short, a couple of weeks ago a heavy metal shelf fell and hit me in the head, which cut my head open and left me feeling not particularly great for most of that time.  I’m feeling a lot better now though, and working hard on the alpha releases.

Whilst they won’t be out on time, I think it’s important that I do put them out, because the feedback I get (“e.g.: x thing doesn’t work”) really helps with the development process as obviously I don’t have every piece of hardware out there, so sometimes things work fine on my machine but perhaps not on someone else’s.

But for now, here is a screenshot of Simplicity 15.7 Netbook Alpha 64 Bit Edition running the 4.0.0 kernel, although we may update this to the 4.0.2 kernel, which our very rough version of X 15.7 currently has.
