Default Cameo Project

Download the new Cameo without Mozilla products and with the Source Code of the Applications that the actual binary(s) where actually altered posted online, other than that enjoy. Also the applications from PortableApps.com where not altered, just the Ascii .ini files where invoked, as which seems legal and legit since the .ini files state;"
# The above options are explained in the included readme.txt
# This INI file is an example only and is not used unless it is placed as described in the included readme.txt
"
doesn't say we can't alter the .ini to make it work within the constraints offered, so there for no violations have been made and the link to the download page of the beta 2 tMoz remix is http://cameo.binarybums.com/download.htm

keep an eye out as beta three, or possibly release candidate one are on the way!
And as always enjoy people, remember an open source world is only as open as the minds of its community!!!

It would appear to be some sort of desktop (i.e. Explorer) replacement for Windows. Try as I might, I couldn't find any details of the versions of Windows it runs on!? Go figure.

Default My apologizes

My apologizes, I was drunk and just copied and pasted another post I had made. Cameo is a portable desktop environment built upon available freeware and open source applications. It also utilizes a modified bbLean shell to replace the Windows Explorer shell for a more *nix style feel. Think of it as portable apps with a *box shell. Alternatively we do also offer just the Cameo bbLean based shell for download also. Also the b/s posted at the top is in regards to some 'legal' hoops we had to jump through with portable apps and mozilla.

Also it runs on Win98 through the latest RC of Win7. Basically any 32Bit or 64Bit Windows OS.

So basically it's a portable desktop environment designed to look like a unix system to replaces Windows Explorer for Windows? When you say portable, do you really mean it can be used from a USB pendrive or something like that? One thing's for sure, they do have attractive screenshots. I'll wait for more info for now.

I don't know how many people are interested but version one of the Cameo Shell has been released quite some time ago on June 19.

Thumbs up

this is wild. i just tried it out on windows 7 and it more or less worked. some glitches here and there, like the start orb appearing at random times, and the window borders acting a bit odd. otherwise it did what it advertises.

too awkward for me though. i've used most alt shells at one time or another, and this one seems pretty average. the fact that it's portable is a huge plus, but i still prefer explorer, especially with the new taskbar that windows 7 has to offer...

when windows 7 is better supported, though, i'll definitely look at it a bit more
