Hannah Montana Linux -- about time!

Oh lord, well it's funny in a sad way, and true. As if you need any more excuses to avoid Linux, this one ain't it: Hannah Montana Linux distro. It should go great with my Hannah Montana home repair toolkit. I feel bad now.

Whiskey.
Tango.
Foxtrot.



...

Reminds me of the parody article "Barbie Linux" from DivisionTwo.

Oh man, one of the developers is named "MileyCyrus".  :sick:

Awesome!

I'm adding HML to my wish list along with the USB Chainsaw that was mentioned in another DC thread. Maybe a loved one will gift me one next Pluterday. ;D

I think I'll wait for Paris Hilton Linux. That way I can carry it around on 1 floppy disc--there really won't be that much substance to it! ;D

Oh, the Paris Hilton edition? Definitely the easiest Linux distro ever...if you can afford the hardware that is.

And besides that, its wifi works only in a certain not to be named hotel chain.

 :P

I was thinking maybe I'd wait for the CIA Congressional Briefing Edition also known as Black Hat.

That's the one where you feed in your foregone conclusion and it returns 700+ pages of 'facts' and 'data' to support it.


CCBE-Linux would probably fit on a 128mb USB key. But, in keeping with the grand traditions of federal spending, it would still cost the taxpayers $1.2 million per copy. CCBE users, however, would still be able to order as many copies as they want for free. :P

On a side note, Qemu didn't want to finish booting it. I think I'm going to have to give it more RAM and install the kqemu accelerator or something.

I'll report back when I get positive results...

That came as a surprise. From the first photo I would have thought it would have been "easier on the eyes" as the saying goes.

[BTW: It would be nice if somebody gave Ms. Cyrus a few lessons in deportment. Pleasant enough looking young lady, but the pose (and those shoes) really need rethinking.]

Qemu wasn't giving me any love, so just go to angrykeyboarder's flickr stream.

Oh crap, this is funny. As long as it doesn't come with her underwear-model boyfriend somewhere in the system!

In all seriousness, though...I have a couple nieces who are very, very smart and are big in all things technological. They are also charter members of the Hannah Montana cult. I'm sure there are countless young girls in the world with the same interests. If this branding of Linux manages to lure in even a small percentage of these girls into learning Linux and the inner workings of PCs I'm all for it.

So what's the actual license that they are distributing this with?
Last I checked (never) Disney hadn't open sourced the Hannah Montana trademark and image.

It's basically Kubuntu with a Hannah Montana theme. The legality is questionable. Nothing on the website about permissions or clearances. (The torrent-only download is a bit of a giveaway.) Best grab a copy while you can if you're interested. Sure to be a bit of nix lore someday.

Oh jeez. :nono2:

The home page is back up and they have a song...

Quote
Oh yeah

Boot up

You get the GUI out front

Hottest styles, every theme, every color

Yeah, when you're root it can be kinda fun

As long as your password is never discovered

In some ways you're just like all your friends

But on the internetz you're a star

You get the best of both OS,s

Run Windows, take it slow

Then Linux rocks out the show

You get the best of both OS,s

Mix it all together and you know that it's the best of both OS,s

The best of both OS,s

And a sticker

What can I say, she completes me. Those lyrics sealed the deal. I'm switching! Here's an article on hacking the Hannah photocube. Dude bricked it.
