APODIO is a 8 years old Gnu/Linux distribution, dedicated to multimedia tools for audio/visual creation, to run your own radio, TV, make your own film, animation, art installation, Live Coding and other A/V performance… .
APODIO is a GNU/Linux platform containing audio, text-friendly, 3D, Streaming, graphic, Live Coding and video tools. It can be used as a liveDVD or be installed on a partition of your hard disk (on any PC 32bits to Mac Intel).
APODIO is a GNU/GPL project, a part of the GNU/Linux Ubuntu family:
APODIO uses a well known system operating the GNOME desktop.
APODIO can easily and quickly be installed, as a whole, coherent, pre-set and instantly ready system on your computer, rather than a ramshackle combination of packages, And what you see as you use the LiveDVD is also what you get after the installation.
APODIO respects the free/Libre software tradition because it fully supports Ubuntu without upsetting Ubuntu?s convenient software packages and administrative scripts and because the liveDVD generative scripts are always accessible : once you have installed APODIO, you can generate a new liveDVD out of your own installation, onto another DVD.
APODIO is a free project under GNU/GPL licence, that fully complies with the GNU spirit and standards, as it encourages knowledge diffusion and knowledge sharing in the practice of multi-media tools, rather than just replacing an economic dependency with a technical one. APODIO is part of a long term undertaking – not just a one off achievement.
APODIO is available to freely download at Sourceforge: http://sourceforge.net/projects/apodio/files/
