There is a brand new forum!
The old forums will be here also for a while until we integrate them, but if you are new, head over the new forums to sign up and ask questions. You can still search the old forums also as there is a good bit of information there.
We will be tweaking and adjusting things during the next few days to make sure it all works well.
Yes unfortunately everyone will have to create new forum accounts to post even if you are a member here. Its part of the transition.
The wattOS team is pleased to announce the release of the new version of wattOS - Release 8 - (also known as R8). After 5 years being an Ubuntu based distro, we have made the change to Debian. Specifically Debian Wheezy as the base, with some backports thrown in (for example a newer Kernel), and in a couple of small places a little Jessie where warranted. But for the most part, its Debian Wheezy as a base to build from.
Head to the Information page for details, the download links to get your copy, and to the foums to discuss.
If you would like to talk live, get help and generally talk to other wattOS folks, then head on over to our IRC chat room that was generously donated by member (and member of the core wattOS team - Gerry Beale) - its super easy using mibbit right from your browser to chat with us. So come on over. Biff will be on at least several times a week as we have new and exciting things we are working on. GO HERE TO CHAT
