C3PC.com and Nuxified.org Partner for Community-Level Support for C3PC Preloaded Linux Computers

We have some good news. Nuxified.org has partnered with C3PC to be their official community support site. Here is an excerpt of the press release:

"Franklin, PA, USA, November 16, 2007: New Ideas Corp. and Nuxified.org have announced a partnership to offer community-level software support for Linux-preloaded PCs from C3PC.

Nuxified.org is a Free Software community that provides forums, blogs, and tutorials that are not only used to support users of Free Software, and any issues they may encounter, but also sets out to educate the community about Free Software.

Ryan Cornmesser, President of New Ideas Corp., states, "We wanted to provide a place for our customers to go, to get quality community-level support without the need to start our own forum. There are already so many great Linux forums already on the internet with great communities behind them."

He continued, "Some of our staff already had a relationship with the Nuxified.org community. Already receiving and giving advice on the forum. It just seemed like the perfect fit." -- Read it in whole here and if you digg the news do it here.

Good to see more free software partnerships.

Because we haven't put it there yet. By the looks of it, the website was created in the last few weeks. We may well add it in future.

maybe i'm just stupid !!

 

What is all the - on there website - about Christian UBUNTU.

What have that to do with http://www.nuxified.org

or maybe it's just because i'm stupid - and don't understand anything - that it's Ok with that religious crap.

Supercool. Dugg! I wondered

Supercool. Dugg!

I wondered about not having read about c3pc on linuxpreloaded too.

Nuxified.org is becoming the big success story of libervis network. Growth leads to more growth. I think we're about to prove doing things right instead of making compromises can lead to success too.

Real community (with partnerships to prove it), inspiring people, cool projects. Nuxified rocks and this seems like a good moment to remind everyone of that Smiling .

By the looks of it, it's

By the looks of it, it's just one of the options they offer preinstalled. Nothing wrong with that, right?

Maybe if you have switched off animations, one animated image will show only the ubuntu CE logo? Even if that is so (I don't know), the site doesn't seem to promote any linux distro more than others.

nothing wrong - well.... ??

 

still womdering what christian stuff have to do with http://www.nuxified.org/

maybe it's bc i'm a european - that i don't understand what missonary stuff have to do with http://www.nuxified.org/

but then - i can just leave http://www.nuxified.org/ - if i don't like it

They even have a link to

 

They even have a link to the freedomware gamefest! Laughing out loud
(oh, and to nuxified too ^^)

You write as if their site

You write as if their site is full of religious propaganda. Are we really looking at the same website?

It's really simple. They are in the business of selling computers with Linux preinstalled. Apparently some people want ubuntu CE preinstalled, and the customer is king. They're not forcing anyone to use ubuntu CE, it's just another option in the list. How is that "missionary"?

Do you really think that if a partner offers ubuntu CE as an option, nuxified is going to be full of stuff about christianity? At most there will be a question or two about software specific to ubuntu CE. If you are afraid a question about some free software actually is an attempt to convert you, I must say you're pretty far out of your mind.

As for you not understanding "missionary stuff" because you're "european", will you please stop and think about history for a moment? Where do you think the missionaries who spread christianity around the world came from? Gee, it just might be Europe. Speaking of history and Europe, the inhabitants of which continent should know better than to be as intolerant towards other religions than their own as you seem to be?

If some christians have special software needs, then let them have their own little distro. If they want to pay someone to install it on their computer, then let them do that. It's Free software, anyone must have the freedom to use it for whatever purpose they want. Nuxified.org is a free software help site, so it supports that freedom.

Before you jump to all the wrong conclusions, I am European and very definitely not christian.

I have every bit of dislike

I have every bit of dislike for religion and I don't have a problem with C3PC offering a CE edition. As tbuitenh said above if somebody wants it they should be free to have it. The base of Ubuntu CE is still Ubuntu, one some of us well know and will be able to help people with. So this site is agnostic. We don't care about what religion people coming here are or even whatever philosophy they believe in. If they want help with Free Software that's what they should get here.

So to recap, Nuxified.org has nothing to do with christianity indeed. Partnering with computer vendors as a community-level support forum is exactly within the scope of what our real mission is: to help users with Free Software and promote its use.

Cheers

Thank you, Danijel. Ubuntu

Thank you, Danijel. Ubuntu CE is purely a customized Ubuntu installation for Christians. The site isn't filled with verses, and telling people to repent. I honestly hate when non-Christians get so bent about something so completely innocent. If they want to become offended at Christianity, and raise a stink, I'm certain I can find five or ten other sites that they can get up in arms about. Offering Ubuntu CE preinstalled is not one of them. It's not the default option on any of the computers. Not one of them.

I'm glad we've been able to forge ahead with this. I'm glad we share the same vision: Promote the use of Free Software. Help those Free Software users.

Thanks,

I had some E-mail

I had some E-mail communication in the past about getting listed on linuxpreloaded.com, but the site wasn't live yet. We've been live for less than a week, and are still working on getting our name out there and getting listed everywhere.

ovelarsen, if you truly are

ovelarsen, if you truly are offended by Ubuntu CE, and you have legitimate reasons, other than I'm selling Ubuntu CE and I have a logo, then please let me know and we can discuss correcting the issues that are offensive. If you're just offended by Christianity in general, then I'm sorry. The point of the partnership between the sites, and the company, is not to force Ubuntu CE upon you and convert you. It's to provide Linux preloaded on quality hardware.

Maybe the best way to make

Maybe the best way to make clear Ubuntu CE is just another option is to also offer to preinstall Ubuntu SE. It might not be a good idea from a marketing point of view, though Eye .

this is not about c3pc....

 

Hii all...

What i wrote about c3pc and Christian UBUNTU - is not about c3pc - and it's buiesness model - but about a Christian UBUNTU in a community-level support forum - so the community at http://www.nuxified.org - have to give support for the Christian UBUNTU - or am i getting something very wrong here ??? Plz correct me if i'm wrong.

And where exactly is the

 

And where exactly is the problem about this? Are you afraid somebody will say "God bless you" instead of simply "Thank you" when you answer a question about a program like Gimp or OpenOffice, which are about as christian as the sand on the beach...
Or is it that maybe somebody might have problems using KBibletime?

Or maybe you just feel repressed because there's no Ubuntu Hindu Edition/Buddhism Edition/Fishermens Edition/...?

Whatever might be your actual problem, I think nobody here gets what the hell it is.

So I strongly suggest that you either finally tell us what your problem with the Christian Edition of Ubuntu is or just STFU about it...

hey - don't get personal

 

As far as i remember - the open source community - have always been debating things - in an open exchange - right ??

And i was just wondering - about what i saw - and wanted to let the rest of the community know - what i found - bc nobody said anything about in the press-material.

And i hope that the rest of the community - don't like to go blind-folded into something - or maybe i'm wrong there - too ?

Now everybody know - and by the things said here - then everybody are happy about it - and then it must be fine. Right ?

But don't ask me to STFU - next time either - bc - to me - that is NOT what Open Source community is about.

We support free

We support free software.
Ubuntu CE is a collection of free software.
We can and will attempt to help the users of any one piece of software included in Ubuntu CE, no matter how the user got it (Ubuntu CE or not, etc) or why they use it (religious reasons ?)

To me, Ubuntu CE is just another distribution that I don't use. When somebody wants help from me on free software, I don't give a damn whether they use Ubuntu Christian Edition, Dzongkha Linux or Fedora 8.
If they start yelling that "Christian Ubuntu is the only true Linux, Amen" or something like that, they're probably morons and I'll tell them that they're talking crap.

They have the freedom to chose their religion and follow it blindly. They have the freedom to use whatever software they want. We respect that freedom, no matter whether we agree with their choices.

I don't really understand your problem, ovelarsen. We're not starting to use Ubuntu CE, we're not starting to fight for wider adoption of Ubuntu CE. We're just continuing to support the freedom of our members in this and other matters.

Also, reptiler did not tell you to STFU. He asked you, albeit not very politely (though I cannot criticize his choice of tone), to explain what your problem is (as I have done in another form) or to stop ranting on for yourself to the benefit of no one.

I am sure that the partnership in a friendly relationship with links to and fro, not involving any contract. Even if libervisco were employed by C3PC.com, that wouldn't harm the community. Nobody can force us users to answer questions. We answer what we want, because we want to. If you chose categorically ignore all questions by Ubuntu CE users, you may of course do that. (That wouldn't be very polite, of course)

Please elaborate.

Not any more than we have to give support for any other distribution out there. If you choose not to help people asking questions related to Ubuntu CE that's your choice. Nobody actually has to do anything. It's all voluntary.

Ubuntu CE is therefore not getting ANY special treatment here, nor any further treatment than it already did before, and same stands for all other distros.

So whether it is Ubuntu CE, Ubuntu Satanic Edition if you will, Ubuntu Muslim Edition or whatever else, as long as it's comprised of Free Software people will be welcome to ask questions about it here. And none are going to get any extra promotion than any other.. Now how popular will one be is totally dependent on how many users ask questions about it. So far, Ubuntu has been most popular. I don't even think that many Ubuntu CE users actually mention it's a CE because, I believe, the differences are not that crucial in technical terms. It's still 99% same software.

Right, but with arguments!

I didn't ask/tell you to STFU in general, I just want you to stop talking and start saying something. I think you would make an excellent politician, you talk a lot without actually saying something. And since reasoning didn't help I thought maybe a few harsher words might finally make you to get to the point.
It was in no way meant to actually attack you, I am sure you have your reasons for insisting so much on this point, it is just not clear what these are. And obviously I am not the only one feeling like this.

I don't see a general problem with discussing this I just want to know your arguments, because how can we support or argue against them when we don't know what is the actual problem. It's pretty much like people stating "that program doesn't work" or things like that.

So please tell us what made you open up this topic so that we can finally start discussing about it, otherwise just forget about it (which is what I actually meant with STFU) and move on to one of the other discussions that are interesting to read and/or worth joining.

Nuxified.org has always

Nuxified.org has always supported Ubuntu CE - it's free software, we support all free software, and we never stated anywhere we don't support free software with a religious aspect to it.

I don't see why we should stop supporting Ubuntu CE, but if you know a good reason then I'm all ears.

Please note that everything you posted about this topic so far looks a lot like a troll shouting "religion is evil". It doesn't surprise me people say "explain or STFU".
