My name is Ikey Doherty. I presented myself here before in alpha stage of SolusOS.
I would like people to know that its now at Release Candidate 3.
I have introduced some things traditionally not found in Debian.

New Applications - Older Base
SolusOS is based on Debian Stable, but many packages are backported for it. For instance we have Firefox and Thunderbird 11, VLC 2.0 and LibreOffice 3.5.1, amongst
other things.

We will obviously switch to Gnome 3 when we rebase on Wheezy. However I've also made it quite possible to have a Gnome 2 experience with no extensive hacking. When I have some alphas up
I do not mind sharing my work and patches with the Debian packagers.

As most are aware I do not use the Debian Installer. As odd as this sounds, its not required for a LiveCD.
The current version is written in Python and I will rewrite it in Vala.
Some initial concept work: https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-f9RQq2fgRHI/T2nbdGHJv0I/AAAAAAAAAWU/MkfsROTTUtQ/s932/Installer.png

I would like to know where Debian's interest link with those of SolusOS, and how I can help port
these techniques etc. upstream.

Kind Regards,
Ikey Doherty
