Foresight Linux 2.5.0 ALPHA 2 GNOME Edition Release Notes

It is with great pleasure that I announce the release of Foresight 2.5.0 ALPHA 2 GNOME Edition!

Once again, this alpha release is from our QA branch, and is intended mostly to receive feedback on brand new installs from end-users, specially in relation to the overall behavior of X.org on first boot!

Well known for being a desktop operating system featuring an intuitive user interface and a showcase of the latest desktop software, this new release brings you the latest GNOME 2.32 release, a newer Linux kernel 2.6.35.10, Xorg-Server 1.8, Conary 2.2 and a ton of updated applications!

The following images are available for download right now:
