Every Snakeoil OS release has a code name. And the code name is an snakeoil audiophile product. Some of them works, most of them do not. This chapter logs the history and release of each Snakeoil OS release. Come with me as we walk down memory lane.
Released: 29th Feb 2106.
This day marks the first release of Snakeoil OS. It's based off the machine I'm running at the time, with a simple PHP web interface on top to ease people into the Ubuntu/Linux ecosystem. The timing for this release is no accident, it's February 29th, and the next Snakeoil birthday is always 4 years apart! With a quirky name of Snakeoil, the birthday has to be on the leap day. This release also marks the first time I have registered for a domain (snakeoil-os.net), as well as paying for my first virtual host. After 40 years, I've finally created something to put on "the cloud"!
Released: 23rd March 2016.
There is nothing much to this release, this is just a minor release that fixes some of the bugs from 'Schumann Resonance'.
At the time I was thinking every release (even the minor versions) should have a Audiophile Snakeoil product. Seemed like a good idea then.
