Nevertheless, let me take this opportunity to remind visitors that we are NOT hosting the download on this site, nor are we claiming any authorship or ownership of the software (or even the reprinted material provided here).
The distro and packages can be found in a few places, including from torrents and Tony Baldwin’s own site (LinguasOS.wikidot.com). However, Mr. Baldwin has quite clearly indicated that he has little interest in the project anymore. He’s now spending time building a client base for his robust enterprise seo services. You’ll note that seo has taken over much of his time, and as more and more businesses rely on the search for leads, his business has taken up more and more of his time. We’re more than willing to re-direct traffic to anyone who happens to pick up the reins (in the event that anyone does so, of course).
A good developer may be certified in a current database product but has competency in a variety of different skills. An example: one of our members help develop an e-commerce website for an online casino affiliate website. The development of the site required not only his technical skills in web design, coding, seo etc. It also required him to show courage, eagerness and judgment in making his choices. The coding requirements to create this type of e-commerce site were not too complicated, but did require a vigilant webmaster once the site was built, to continuously update the site for monthly specials that related to their online slots USA page. One of the major considerations in this instance has to do with US law since at the time the site was created, it was illegal in most states to gamble online. So slot games and entire casinos needed to be focused on players who could comfortably play without regard to legal issues. In this case, the site in question was an affiliate offering slots for US players. The laws are gradually changing, and the expectation is that soon more states will inevitably pass law legalizing online gaming because of both demand and the additional revenue.
The developer had a check list of all the directives for the functionality needs of the site. And believe me, the list for tools and functionality went on and on. The great news is the site was successful and he demonstrated quite clearly his seo competency.
If you didn’t already know, Linguas OS is a project developed by Tony Baldwin as a demo for a translators conference. The goal was to adapt a Linux operating system distribution (based on PCFluxboxOS) with tools and apps specifically chosen to assist translators.
- The most recent release (1.1) of Linguas OS was in January of 2008, and the author has stated that this project is no longer in development.
- The Linguas OS Yahoo Group (http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/linguasos/) still exists, but the last (relevant) message was posted in October of 2009 by Mr. Baldwin himself, explaining that the project had “fizzled to a halt last year”.
- The Linux for Translators Yahoo Group (http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/linuxfortranslators/) is still going strong, however, so LinguasOS users may find support there. In case you didn’t already know, Yahoo Groups sometimes requires a (free) membership to view posts, depending on how the specific group is set up.
Linguas OS is fully configurabe! Want to change the boring default desktop (what? don’t like my Linguas OS wallpapers?) Go ahead! This shows Linguas OS, after install, including the Gimp for image manipulation (what I used to create all of the Linguas OS artwork, and artwork for my sites) and XMMS (winamp for linux), which aren’t included on the CD but will be on the DVD, and, are also easily installable using synaptic, if you install from the CD. Pretty, huh? This is my current desktop (27/12/07)

There is much more information available of course but this is the basic information you might need. There are a plethora of sources available on the topic & you should have no trouble finding additional information should it be required. You can look online or in reference books at libraries.
