Sans Frontieres OS
Sans Frontieres OS
Originally based on the SuseStudio distro DemocraKey PRO, Sans Frontiers is an attempt at a up-to-date openSUSE 12.1 fashioned towards Linux Mint in design aspects. To this end since the exact replacement for the Gnome 2 environment (MATE) has yet to be released/stabilized, this build employs the Gnome 3 replacement found in Cinnamon.
The aim of SF is to present a workable, polished GNU/Linux environment that most users can startup and use ‘out-of-the-box’. Where Sans Frontieres goes a step further is to try to offer many privacy, security, & anonymous settings/programs by default.
The remaining selections in software are of a personal preference, but which are mostly Free Software and hopefully extensive enough in size (10gbs total install) to enable most users a full desktop after an install. Inclusions have been made from many areas such as games, file-sharing, office software, cryptography, network administration, science tools, music creation/production, programing, education projects, AV editing, etc.

*Tor & Torchat
The only EULA with this GNU/Linux customized openSUSE build is that you must agree to pursue good for yourself and others by using it. Mankind will likely perish before it can expand to the stars, so endeavor think of the planet and others…Sans Frontieres
USB & disk image
This is an image of your disk, ready to be written to either a USB drive or your hard disk. When written, it will erase all data on a disk. During the first boot, your partition will be automatically resized to fill available space.
Burn this ISO file to a DVD (or CD, if the space allows), and you'll be able to boot directly from the disc.
A bootable ISO containing the appliance disk image. Boots into a simple graphical environment and prompts for confirmation before writing the image onto the hard drive. Useful for performing automated system installs/preloads.
Warning: Overwrites all data on the target hard drive.
Open Virtualization Format (OVF)
The OVF format is an open standard for packaging and distributing virtual appliances. It is not tied to any particular hypervisor or system architecture.
VMware / VirtualBox / KVM image
Whether you use VMware, VirtualBox, or KVM, this vmdk is a ready-to-use virtual appliance.
Xen guest image

Version 0.0.30 – Possibly the last Beta, this release includes many upgrades to Cinnamon and the inclusion of the following programs: EasyShutdown, ComplexShutdown, gtkpod, DeaDBeeF, Transmaggedon Video Transcoder, ELinks & xxxterm Browser, minitube, GiMP, Inkscape, Ekiga, GeMan X BBS Client, and a few other under the hood addons. Also provided in this release are various deployable formats other than just a live disc.
In the future I hope to add a more secure Twitter client, an updated GNU Med, and perhaps some other underused but stable programs.
