Sadly, not if you use OpenDNS. It blocks access, claiming that
"snowlinux.de" is a phishing site. I have advised them of their error.

I wonder if it is because of the voluntary paypal donation page? I can
see how that might throw up a possible red flag.

Regardless, if you are interested in an install CD that is 100% 12.04
Ubuntu with the classic gnome2 desktop and no Unity, this is definitely
worth checking out.

Sorry to hear that, Peter. I don't know what to tell you to do. I've
sent the contact email for snowlinux an advisory that they are being
blocked by some DNS services as a phishing site.

Direct d/l links for the 32 bit and 74 bit disks are after the specs.
maybe those will work for you. If they don't I'd be willing to put the
64 bit disk image onto my dropbox for one week.

Al the vital things are usable with a mouse but some need more clicks
than on other desktops, like starting a program from the Dash or
switching the desktop.

Some things that make Unuty great for keyboard users, like lenses and
the HUD, just aren't made to be used with a mouse.

I've received a response from OpenDNS saying that they have removed the
phish tag from snowlinux.de

Although, come to think of it, now that I'm using Xubuntu, I like it
better than GNOME 2.
