Gaël Duval has announced the first test release of Ulteo, a new distribution that promises to introduce revolutionary concepts in managing and updating an operating system and applications. From the release announcement: "Here is the first public version of Ulteo! Its codename is 'Sirius' because we want to make it a star." The brief release notes explain some of the ideas behind Ulteo: "This installable live CD is based on Debian and Ubuntu packages. It's installed on the hard-drive using "Yuch". A daemon, called UGD (Ulteo General Daemon), is always connecting to Ulteo servers to see if a newer, more up to date system is available. It can then upgrade to this new system." This release of Ulteo is based on Ubuntu 6.06 and uses kernel 2.6.15, X.Org 7.0, KDE 3.5.2 and Firefox 220.127.116.11.
