Distros 

About:It has been every Arab linux/unix user's dream to have full and complete Arabic support in the various popular distributions out there. We are attempting to help all those that are working on Arabic distributions (or support thereof) and are attempting to provide them with whatever assistance we can which they require.

The following distributions (distros) are currently being Arabized and/or are being actively looked into to bring more proper Arabic support,

www.haydarlinux.com
www.mandrakelinux.com

Please lend these projects a helping hand and bring more complete Arabic packages to fruition by getting engaged yourself.

History Log 


(Jun 13, 2004)
[OpenBugs] Munzir Taha designed an OpenBugs wiki page. This is a documentation of the open Arabic related bugs in the current generation of GNU/Linux software. It's meant to serve as a one-stop location to help people in the voting process. This document will be updated regularly to reflect a bleeding-edged situation. I hope you will devote some time to vote for these bugs. Also, feel free to edit the page but leave a comment regarding the change, please.
