I was hoping that Anjum would reply but his post is too brief so here I will try to answer as best as I could.

We have iso on-line but have bandwidth issue, hence can not post link here. If any one can host [ 700 Mb ] please contact me through PM or email.

No objection if some COOL volunteer is willing to seed bittorrent.

There are still some changes going on at base level, hope these will be done with in this week then we will go for more wider testing.

KOS is not for sale, it is free for download when it is released. Those who wish to test for them it is free all you have to do is send me an email with your address + phone number and CD will be mailed.

If you do not have DSL then I would suggest you request ISO, we will provide a tutorial like this on how to update iso and also on how to install with out burning a CD. This way you can verify if the changes you suggested have been incorporated and are working the way you wanted them.

All others will have to wait a bit till Software Freedom Day when it will be available at shop near you.

We have included ALL Urdu Fonts which are GPL / Free, beside we have included Lughat [ 80k+ plus English Arabic words and option to submit Urdu, Sindhi,Pushtu,Baluchi translation] and Arabeyes EnglishArabic Dictionary.

Hope this is all for now and "more to follow" :) per Anjum.

Does the distribution also contain the kernel development headers?
Many of us will require kernel headers to compile additional drivers. Especially for modems.
If it is not included then kindly include it in the 1.0 final release.

I`ve got it working as a live CD. It did not correctly detect a new monitor, but worked ok with an older monitor. Looks good and stable, though its not been heavily tested.
