Apologies for being quiet lately despite big news that Chromium OS sources has been released. Sometime ago I predicted and compared the features of Google's operating system to Webconverger. And I think I am right!
Webconverger does not require any registration and you can now download the latest 5.8 update! The differences can be seen from this package listing:
vimdiff http://download.webconverger.org/webc-5.7.txt http://download.webconverger.org/webc-5.8.txt
The big difference with this release is that I experimenting by using i686 builds instead of 486. This means that Webconverger will not boot on very old PCs and some cheap CPUs like Geode. If this is problem for you, let me know! For the rest of us with i686 compatible hardware, Webconverger should be a litter faster.
In other news, the spelling from the previous release 5.7 with Firefox 3.5 should now be working for you.
The CJK support might not quite work on these free images, however if you purchase Webconverger with Chinese (or Korean or Japanese) support I will ensure all the relevant fonts and input tools are pre-installed.
And just for fun, if you need Webconverger to make a quick sign, please try http://sm.nomeata.de/ :)
