Oct 19, 2003: The World's First Arabic Live-CD released

Arabeyes would like to announce the first full public release of Arabbix. Version 0.8 will be distributed (courtesy of the Saudi Computer Society) at Gitex in Dubai (Oct 19 - 23) and is, as always, available for download free of any charges.

Arabbix is the world's first Arabic Live-CD (run-from-CD) distribution that showcases Arabeyes' and others' accomplishments and results - it includes most of the applications an Arab user might require or need. Arabbix is not only intended to attract new users and to cement the virtues of Open Source and Linux as a fully functional Arabic desktop medium, but is also hoped that it will engrave into people's hearts and minds Arabeyes' "can be done" and "results oriented" attitude and goals.

Arabeyes would like to thank its many volunteers for their time, hard work and perseverance in bringing this project to reality while enduring extreme duress due to an aggressive schedule and many deadlines. Arabbix is a true leap forward for all Arabic Open Source/Linux users.
