A special thanks to the AmigaOS development and testing teams for their hard work on this release!
Nothing has been mentioned as to what the mentioned Commodore App Store would feature. It may be something like what Software Manager offers, or something a little more? I personally would like to see options though, where the online user can choose which software and extra Themes to install instead of what is essentially included or featured, a simple tick and choose what you want to download? Sure, main system hard drives today are enormous, but when you fill these and externals with work, space comes at a premium!!!
For me, Software Manager lacks a featured section for Themes. By example, the Software Manager Graphics section offers 6 sub categories for type of software. When looking for themes, Google ends up being my friend, which is not always friendly time wise, if you get my drift!
I don’t know how straightforward this would be to achieve, but if ‘Fusion’ is still in development and to remain in beta, wholly based on Linux Mint 13, is it not feasible for a user to update an installed OS, i.e. update an installed Mint 13 OS with the tweaks and enhancements from Commodore designated repositories as to and when they’re ready? If Themes, fonts, etc can be downloaded via Terminal, surely any ‘Fusion’ graphical enhancements can be downloaded this way too, if only to begin with?
So far C=OS flaws are:
No real support for troubleshooting, not even on official forum, which is more propaganda related
No real power Linux users to explain and guide, no real manual
C=OS Vision is based on Mint 10 which is old arhitecture and is already abandoned, while not being 1.0
C=OS Fusion is announced to be copy of Mint 13, but is not yet public download. There is no natural progress and update of OS, but such „name and vision“ jumps are to be expected each time newer Mint is developed
C=USA Webstore might offer some Linux apps to download or buy, but that already exists within Mint 13
And yes, we should never forget YOU should work for them, selling their products and supporting CommodoreOS … brilliant
