1. What is the OULD Project?

The aim of the project is to establish a common Linux desktop within OUCS, and offer some peer support. It is not a managed desktop, but provides a supported base system on which users can build and from which they can restart for disaster recovery. Support is provided using an (archived) internal mailling list to capture a knowledge base as a set of web pages.

The simple idea is to standardize on Ubuntu, to smooth the way by creating local virtual packages and to package local software as needed.
