    It would be nice to have a gender neutral theme with a gender neutral color theme (orange or green) and a gender neutral character (an animal or inanimated object). Just my two cents.

    We expect to have the final release available in the early part of May. The LiveCD will use a regular user account like the current Ubuntu LiveCDs have, but the install option will be removed from the desktop.

    PayPal checkout does not work on your site. I have no problems elsewhere. I tried to purchase 2 CDs, but could not process the order.

    Please post an md5sum for the qimo 2 beta iso with the torrent link. This is good for verfying the torrented iso.

    My install failed and a was wondering if my download is corrupted.

    I have a 4 yr old girl. Was just wondering when the girl friendly Qimo was going to be offered for sale.

  6. Michael Hall says:

    The girl friendly theme, along with all the rest of Qimo, will be available completely free to download.

    If you’re interested in buying a printed CD, or a computer pre-loaded with Qimo, keep an eye on our "Shop Qimo" section once version 2.0 is officially released.
