Thank you for letting us know of this new release. It sounds like an ambitious and exciting project that definitly deserves some attention. I have only slight experiences with FreeBSD in the past, but wouldn't mind giving it another try. This could perhaps be an excellent opportunity to get back into it, and help out the project in the process.

Thank you,

We thanks to the admin for giving us the opportunity to highlight the new operating system. Anyway, there's more contributions from us to the communities of open source software such as documentations, software updates, 3rd party software download, help and community to community support and much more need to be ready from time to time. It's quite a big job for us but by a moral supports from the community, hopefully we'll be growing at a steady rate. Some users notice the 'Purchase Area', but it's only a subscription basis and will occur maybe a year from now. If the subscription begin, download for the Triance OS in the future still remain FREE.

Please note all that another branch of Triance operating system will come out around the corner (or to be dated again soon). That is Triance Linux 1.0. This is to cater communities need on different variant of operating system as we have done survey of equal statistics of people using either xBSD or linux based OS. It is based from Fedora Core 2.0 with a few upgrades, distribution only on single CD and looks will be as same like Triance OS. Note again that, Triance OS is a FreeBSD derivation and Triance Linux is a Linux based operating system. Much to do here and hope to gain moral support from u guys.

Cheers all and Thanks admin! smile.gif
