This is the second last preview leading up to illume OS 1.0! YouΓΓé¼Γäóre welcome to send some feedback to my email address specially made for this project - email@example.com. IΓΓé¼Γäóve already set to work on the next preview release, and itΓΓé¼Γäós pretty stunningΓΓé¼ª
You can download the ISO image from here.
P.S. - When booting up, youΓΓé¼Γäóll see a few things thatΓΓé¼Γäóll look like errors, but theyΓΓé¼Γäóre really just showing up because some of the drivers bundled with the ISO are not for your hardware, so you wonΓΓé¼Γäót have to worry about it.
illume OS is an easy to use Linux-based operating system. Perfect for home and educational use.
So, you must be pretty adventurous to come over to this page, eh? Well this is like a Chemistry lab, where the wrong mixtures could result to an undesired reaction. I do have to warn you, these ISO images are not for the faint-of-heart. If you screw your hard disk up... well that's 'death' by misadventure.

If you've installed illume OS to a hard disk, you have the choice of making your own user account under your name and your own password via the Terminal using the command 'adduser'... or to go to the Package Manager and remove a package called 'xdm'.
