We're happy to announce the first beta release of a new series of lunar-linux
installer ISO's. Our new ISO's will be as easy to install as 1.6.1, but pack an 
extra punch: This series of ISO's preinstalls a basic Xfce4-4.4.1 desktop with 
XOrg-7.2, together with firefox, thunderbird, pidgin, audacious, gimp and a few 
other basic desktop utilities.

We hope to make it easy for everyone to both enjoy playing and learning from a 
true source distro environment and both be productive quickly. The extra 
applications  will give new users a fast start and should install easily on most 
(even brand new) hardware with the kernel, but also give the user a 
welcome feeling on a freshly installed lunar-linux system.

At 585MB, this is a remarkable ISO that provides a great desktop installation to 
start with. I myself enjoyed testing this ISO on new systems, where even the 
wireless and 3D (open source radeon driver) worked without any other user 
interaction except for the command `startxfce4`. Hopefully you are as lucky on 
your hardware ;)
