What on earth is Ubuntu Furry Remix?

[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.

Why don't you download it and report your findings back to us? :D :lol:

EDIT: Google brings up a couple of pages on Launchpad. Looks to be mostly artwork, themes, etc. One page says it's a "complete Ubuntu-based operating system, created for furries by furries" — presumably referring to this.

But I still think you should download, investigate, and let us know what you find. :D

I've seen the effects my sisters cats had on her computer by jumping around on the keyboard, I'm not about to let an animal loose inside mine :roll:

A US drama series(it may have been ER,or CSI,can't remember which) had an episode featuring "furries" - they were people who dressed up in animal suits,the plot never explained exactly why... :?

Was the original CSI series.
It's a social role-playing convention where all the people dress up as animals, "furries".
Purpose? I don't know - probably the same reason as old-fashioned masked balls; you can express yourself in a fun or different way without your real-life identity.

proxima_centauri,

Apart from one of the "furries" ending up messily dead(hence the confusion between ER and CSI) it seemed like harmless eccentricity.
