BLAG is a 100% Free Software distribution with all the tools you want from a desktop computer, plus more. It comes on a single CD, is easily installed, and user friendly. Power users have the resources of a repository that combines bits from Fedora Core, Fedora Extras, freshrpms, Dries, ATrpms, livna, Planet CCRMA, and our own special brews.

BLAG 60000 (flout) is a new series with a new base (FC6) and many new applications.

Featuring all of the applications below on JUST ONE CD. Burn copies and hand them out! It's got it all. Did I mention it's all on just one CD?

Democracy Player
Very cool Internet TV program. Download high-quality shows straight to your hard drive. Don't settle for little windows in a web browser! :)

Video editor
That's right, edit video--it's on the CD. Kino for basic editing or the more powerful cinelerra for movie production. Then edit DVD menus with qdvdauthor.

inkscape
enabled with inkboard so you can collaboratively work on drawings with other users via the Internet using jabber!

kiax
Make free phone calls around the world to landlines, mobile phones, and VoIP phones with this unique service from the BLAG project BLASTERISK.

Audio players
"listen", is a cool app that integrates playlists, album covers automatically, lyrics, wikipedia lookups, group playlists, everything. The minimal rock-solid xmms is there as always.

mplayer & xine
Two top-notch video players, plus mencoder to re-encode audio and video

DVD Ripping
Well, that's what it does. Thoggen! So easy to use, straight to theora format. For CDs, there's the venerable grip.

audacity
Edit soundfiles with a lean, easy to use, but powerful sound editor.

Gaim
Handles jabber, AOL, MSN, IRC, ICQ, Yahoo, and other Instant messaging networks--all in one program. Includes encryption and "off the record" plugins for privacy.

Firefox
The famous web browser, of course

Thunderbird
Nice email client

streamtuner
Tune into streaming radio stations on the 'net! Plus with streamripper, you can record 'em.

MuSE
Or instead of just listening, broadcast your own station with MuSE and icecast! Free music is even included.

Package/Application Management
Both yum and apt are available with pirut and synaptic GUIs. Download from our repo of over 8,500 free packages.

Gnome
User friendly yet powerful, Gnome is the main desktop that BLAG is built upon. Fluxbox is on the CD too....

games
A few of those even....

3D Modeling
World famous blender is on the CD should you decide to make the next great computer graphics movie!

GIMP
Edit photos & images, put Bush's head on anything you want, have at it...

Font Editor
Create fonts! Edit existing fonts.

Peer-to-peer
Bittorrent and a gnutella client, sitting right there on the CD waitin' for you.

Blogs
Get blog or any other RSS feeds with liferea, gpodder for audio blogs, and gnome-blog for uploading your own blog posts.

gnome-translate
Conveniently translate text or websites.

Document Layout
scribus for anything from pamphlets to long books!

Office slock
abiword a lightweight word processor, gnumeric lightweight yet powerful spread sheet, and glabels does its job so well.

GCC
Since 2002, BLAG has not had a compiler on the CD--compilers have been available on the DVDs or in the repo. With BLAG 60k, gcc, plus a few basic bits are available immediately should you need to compile a new kernel, modules, or whatever.

Server bits
apache for webserving, vsftp ftp server, and postfix for SMTP. Openssh's server is included, along with a dhcpd server and xinetd.

kernel
Yes! One of those. 2.6.18-1.2869. Note BLAG 60k is compatible with i686 (~Pentium II or greater) processors. BLAG disables SELinux by passing selinux=0 to the kernel boot line. :)

So freakin' much
And even more in the online repository. Thousands of more applications are available with a few clicks. No cost, yo.

Yes, all this is on one CD! 700 megs of Free Software.

If that's not enough, developers can grab the two BLAG binary DVDs and the two source DVDs. This has the entire repository of 8,500+ 100% Free Software packages.

Installation Instructions:
http://wiki.blagblagblag.org/Installation

Put in the CD, hit enter at the boot: prompt, and answer the few questions. :)

Alternately, if you want to ERASE EVERTYHING on your hard drive and do an automated install, you can type:
blagblagblag
at the boot: prompt of the initial screen of the CDROM. This makes installation fast and easy for computer labs, recycling centers, etc.

Upgrade Instructions:
Put in the CD and select "Upgrade" when prompted. After the install and you've rebooted into the upgraded system you can run this, if you are connected to the Internet, to grab updates to packages you may have installed that weren't on the CD:
apt-get update
apt-get --fix-broken install

Users have successfully upgraded using yum or apt-get by changing 50000 to 60000 in /etc/yum.repos.d/ or /etc/apt/sources.list.d/
This exercise is recommended for experienced users. Install a new 60k kernel first:
apt-get update
apt-get install kernel#2.6.18-1.2869.fc6
apt-get dist-upgrade
