“Onebase Linux DevelopGo is a special Live-CD released by the Onebase Linux Project. As the name indicates, it is meant exclusively for programmers. Although I am a Windows programmer, I was searching for such a Live-CD that would allow me to experiment with different types of toolkits and IDEs available in Linux. Onebase DevelopGo matched exactly what I wanted to have with a suite of developer tools and compilers.”
Review: Onebase DevelopGo
2005-08-25 Linux 13 Comments
Onebase was the distro that let me try out KDE 3.3, being the only one I knew of at the time with it on a livecd, and I appreciated that. It got them good exposure. Then they disappeared. It seems Klax has taken over the liveCD + prerelease KDE niche, and Onebase lost out. Too bad for them, I guess this is a way to try to get some mindshare back.
I’ve not tried it though, if I want to try an IDE I just install it. It’s a lot easier and safer than installing beta versions of my desktop environment. So, I don’t see them gaining back much mindshare with this.
well that review didn’t sound like some one plugging their product at all
“This “Live Development Platform” looks absolutely awesome. I was waiting for something exactly like this and here it comes. DevelopGo looks so good, well integrated and polished, it might well become somewhat of a new standard for development.”

there is a scent of astroturf here
It’s very intresting. I can give it away to my friends, who develop on Windows, and they can (even in office-env) try to do something useful for other OSes.
Looks like they threw together every single useless development library and fringe language (Ruby, Lua, Boo, COBOL?!?! Seriously, WTF?!?!) but didn’t even bother to add useful things wxWidgets or even wxPython.
Ugh, wake me up when these people get a clue. Yawn…
I can’t say i noticed php included in this distro. I hope somethings wrong with me eyes, because why, o why, wouldnt one throw in php in this “awsome” developer enviroment that could very well “become somewhat of a new standard for development“…. (hehe i couldnt restrain myself)
…do I need to fork over $10 for this liveCD?!
BTW, that review said nothing beyond what’s already on the OneBase website… One huge plug indeed.

Ruby and Cobol fringe and useless ??? What planet do you live on. Oh yes and wxPython is soooooo main stream.
