✊🏿 There can be no peace without justice. This software is a tool for
resistance, to share knowledge and information in a Babylonian world
that seeks to control the way we communicate as much as possible. This
software is for all those who cannot afford new expensive equipment to
express their consciousness and words of goodwill. This software is not
just for consuming information: it has a whole series of tools for
producing it. It is a complete multimedia studio, thanks to it you do
not need to buy anything to express yourself. Freedom, knowledge
sharing and empowerment are the pillars of our development. That is
where this software comes from.

🔥 Dynebolic is a Live and 100% Free Operating System for multimedia
production, it runs from a USB stick and it requires no installation,
giving you a chance to try GNU/Linux applications without any ads,
spyware or attempts to make you pay to express your creativity. We
include free software to create your own media and not just consume it
with a gratis player and expensive producer products, because we
believe in free speech and freedom of creation. Jah Bless You.

🫰🏾 In this Babylonian world, money is a vital necessity in order to
make one's voice heard. Capitalist and ideological governments rule the
world by using a monopoly on mass television and corporate social media
to propagate their principles, and suppress all criticism. With
Dynebolic we break free from exploitative operating systems: always
demanding expensive hardware, giving us free players while requiring us
to spend money to make and share our own creations.

🖖🏾 Dynebolic is a self-contained production and publishing tool.
There is no need to spend anything, it contains everything you need for
production. It commits to the Free System Distribution Guidelines of
the GNU project and includes exclusively free software: we reject
nonfree applications, nonfree programming platforms, nonfree drivers
and firmware, nonfree games, and any other nonfree software, as well as
nonfree manuals or documentation.

Ten years have passed and today we are back with a brand new Dynebolic
4.0 based on Devuan 5 "Daedalus", live-boot and the Linux kernel 6.8

We introduce a new user experience organized as different journeys into
creativity, that we call workflows. Our desktop adopts KDE 5 Plasma and
its "Activities" to provide pre-sets for five specific workflows:

- Streaming
- Audio
- Video
- Graphics
- Publishing

Each activity is easily reached from the desktop panel or via keyboard
shortcuts and offers everything needed for each workflow, while
excluding the noise of other workflows, without compromising on access.
If you are working for example in the Graphic workflow, nothing is
stooping you from starting an app that pertains to, say, the Video
workflow. Activities are easily customizable by the user in the system

Those who remember how dynebolic was already 20 years ago recall well
that we are not just working on a wonderful distribution to introduce
people to the Free Software Movement and its original values, but we
also facilitate a community of creatives that help each other to make
this distribution better. You are very welcome to join us in the online
channels and give use feedback: this release is BETA, because we need
your help.

:: The path to the final release ::
While you may already be able to produce work in most workflows with
this beta release, expect bugs.

::: Audio production :::
This part still needs a lot of love; proper audio routing still needs
to be configured. For this, we are currently experimenting with
PipeWire, but you are more than welcome to join us in the quest for the
optimal interoperable configuration. Dynebolic emphases reuse: it is of
utmost importance that the final state be compatible with as many
devices as possible, including older sound-devices.

::: Wallpaper :::
Currently, each activity has a placeholder wallpaper-art that works.
But ultimately, we'd love to have an artwork for each workflow. Is this
your call? Join us in the channels to propose your vision of the most
beautiful and functional artwork.

::: Modules :::
Also for this new release of Dynebolic there is an easy way to brew
your own modules and distribute them freely from your website, contact
us if you are interested to know and and help us writing up this part
of the documentation.

::: Source code :::
To secure your init-freedom, dyne:bolic IV is based on Devuan and all
its build system is published here:
