Dreamlinux Multimedia Edition 2.2 is a one of distro linux that focus on multimedia. Dreamlinux comes from Brazil, it can be used as a linux live CD or dekstop (by install it on hard disk drive).
Dreamlinux uses Xfce 4 as it Dekstop Environment. The desktop looks like Apple’s Macintosh, it’s so cool…!!!!!
Because Dreamlinux is a special distro linux that focus on multimedia (see the name : Dreamlinux multimedia edition), so the default softwace pakcage is mostly for multimedia task, graphics, videos, and sounds / musics.
Here are the softwares pakcage on DreamLinux :
GnomeBaker (CD DVD Writer)
Conky (Desktop Task Manager)
XPad (Desktop Note)
Gsumi – Inkpaint
IceDove (Thunderbird) Mail
My little disappointed about DreamLinux Multimedia Edition 2.2 : No automatically mount. You should mount your device (Hard Disk, Optical Drive, etc) if you want to use it. But, this is can be fixed with some command in list.sh, so DreamLinux will automatically mount your device since log on the system.
Omake/Addition : There is a newer version of DreamLinux, it’s Dream Linux MMGL Edition 2.2. There’s a little difference between Multimedia Edition and MMGL Edition. MMGL Edition has a new starting logo (silver), has more softwares than Multimedia Edition, and more stable than Multimedia Edition. In my opinion, starting logo on Multimedia Edition is better (blue) than MMGL Edition (silver).
Conclusion : DreamLinux is one of Linux distro that I recommend it to everyone. The appearance looks like Apple’s Mac. The softwares if complete. Full multimedia support (mp3, ogg, MPG, AVI, WMV, RM, FLV, MOV, VCD DAT, DVD VOB, etc). OpenOffice.org is included too. No matter what you choose Multimedia Edition or MMGL Edition, DreamLinux is a good choice for you.
