  • PRINCIPLE OF OPERATING SYSTEM “SYMPHONY OS” Submitted by: LESLIE ANNE MANUEL IT-31A
  • SYMPHONY OS • Symphony OS is a whole new type of Operating System, based on an advanced GNU/Linux base system Symphony provides Linux’s renowned stability and immunity to Windows viruses along with what we consider to be the easiest to use interface out there, our Mezzo Desktop Environment. Installing applications is also a snap with our One Click software store (we call it a store.. but everything there is free). You can see the latest news weather and other important information at a glance on your desktop with our desklet system and breathe new life into old hardware as all of this is designed to work on much lower end hardware than KDE or Gnome. • http://linux.wikia.com/wiki/Symphony_OS
  • Development Release: Symphony OS Alpha 3 • The first public alpha release of Symphony OS is now available. Symphony OS is a Debian/KNOPPIX-based desktop distribution with some radical ideas about ease of use; see screenshots for some interesting images of the "Mezzo" desktop. • First public release was may 12,2005 • The tuxmachines.org web site is the first to publish a review of Symphony OS, a new desktop Linux distribution with some interesting ideas about usability.
  • Development Release: Symphony OS Alpha 4 Symphony • OS is a Debian/KNOPPIX-based desktop distribution with some radical ideas about ease of use. Alpha 4 has just been released. • Alpha 4 includes the KNOPPIX version of the 2.6.11 Linux Kernel and an updated base based on KNOPPIX 3.9 • OS Alpha 4 Symphony release on Aug. 8 2005
  • Development Release: Symphony OS Beta 1 PR1 • After a series of alpha releases, the much anticipated Symphony Os distribution has entered a beta testing phase: "The first Preview of our Beta 1 year oct. 26 2005. Some notable changes in this release include: improved stability in mezzo; new faster orchestra renderer now using .orchestra for it's profile; updated applications; added Totem media player; build no longer uses set KNOPPIX paths so it can be installed and used multi-user with GDM or KDM.
  • Distribution Release: SymphonyOne 2008.1 • SymphonyOne is on April 12 2008, an almost 100% rewrite of all the Mezzo desktop code, taking advantage of more features of FVWM to provide a smaller footprint and more stable environment. Based on Ubuntu 7.10, SymphonyOne provides a complete desktop environment and full Ubuntu compatibility on systems with as little as a 200 MHz processor. Some of the key features include: based on Ubuntu 7.10 with all the latest updates; completely rewritten Mezzo Desktop; Web App System (similar to Mozilla Prizm but implemented in Orchestra and fully integrated into the system). • http://distrowatch.com/index.php?distribution=symphony
  • Alternative GUIs: SymphonyOS • Symphony OS is a departure from the normal desktop interface. Since the distro is still in beta, it's not ready for mass consumption by any stretch. • This is the concept of a desktop.
  • SymphonyOS login screen • SymphonyOS comes as a live Linux CD, and uses ROX-Filer as its default file manager, and also includes Firefox; Thunderbird; Gaim (for instant messaging); and the VLC media player (the latter didn't work until it was reinstalled).
  • INSIDE THE LOG IN • Once logged in, the user is presented with the main screen, which has an area for favorite programs on the left, an area for favorite directories on the right, a bunch of news feeds, and a Google search box. On the whole, it has the feel of Web page, but one that gives you access to programs and directories as well.
  • THE DESKTOP MANAGER • The Desktop Manager allows you (in theory, at least) to change the contents of the desklets and launchers, as well as to change the desktop's background image.
  • COMPUTER MENU • When you click on the hotspot in the upper left-hand corner, it brings you to the "Computer" page, offering you access to your partitions, various settings, and "tasks" such as shutting down the computer.
  • THE PROGRAMS MENU • The hotspot in the lower left-hand corner brings up the "Programs" page, with launchers for favorite programs; all programs; and tasks (such as installing software).
  • FILES MENU AND TRUSH MENU • The hotspots in the upper right-hand corner and lower right- hand corner bring up the "Files" page and the "Trash" page, respectively. At this point, they don't seem to do a lot. (Perhaps you'll be able to "drag-and-drop" in future editions.) http://www.tuxmachines.org/node/17107
