The week at LinuxWorld
and the Fedora Project
released a live CD called LiveContent
The live CD boots Fedora 7 and contains additional content licensed under a
free Creative Commons license. From the Red Hat press
The Fedora 7 operating system boots directly from the LiveContent CD, making use of the open source tools found in the latest Fedora distribution like Revisor, Pungi and more. The CD features a variety of Creative Commons-licensed content including audio, video, image, text and educational resources. From the desktop, users can explore free and open content and learn more about businesses like Jamendo, Blip.tv, Flickr and others supporting creative communities through aggregation and search tools.
Also included are a number of open source software applications including OpenOffice, The Gimp, Inkscape, Firefox, multimedia viewers, open document templates and others. The LiveContent CD is a product of collaboration across a number of organizations - Red Hat is providing in-kind engineering support via Fedora 7 and many open source community members collaborated on the included software applications. Worldlabel.com, member of the Open Document Format Alliance, is supplying ongoing support for the development and distribution of the LiveContent CD.
As Fedora engineer Jack Aboutboul says in this
The purpose of the LiveContent Distribution is to act as as tool and an enabler to both educate people about what Creative Commons is and does, and to provide them the tools and a selection of content with which they can begin to explore the remix culture and how endless the possibilities really are when a culture of collaboration is fostered, not detested.
The CD can be downloaded from the Fedora torrent site.
