Myah OS 3.0 Alpha One has released

Myah OS is an independently developed live CD designed for desktop use.
It is built with custom build scripts and optimised for the i686 processor architecture.

Myah OS is a performance desktop operating system. Made for home use with a focus on Internet, Office, and multimedia. Myah OS has been optimized for i686 processors for fast performance. Myah OS is an original Linux distro, compiled from build scripts written by Jeremiah Cheatham.

Myah OS 3.0 alpha 1 is now available to kick off the 3.0 release cycle. This first alpha release has been very carefully put together. The only thing really missing so far is the graphical installer, which is under construction. This release is a live CD that includes package utilities and all development tools.

Myah OS is built for the i686 intel/amd PCs but will also work very well with the newer 64bit intel/AMD PCs. Myah OS uses it's package management suite designed to be simple and fast. Myah is designed to be a full featured distro, with at least 1 or 2 applications for every need. XFCE 4.4.1 desktop makes Myah run very fast without taking a lot of resources. Myah will also handle all of your multimedia needs.

As stated above the graphical installer is still not ready. There are instructions on how to manually install Myah OS to your hardrive posted on Myah OS 3.0 alpha 1 thread in Myah forum. If you have any problems or bug fixes please post them there.
