Do you know about Omega?



I thought I'd give the Omega LiveDVD a try, but I find the security
rather puzzling. First this:

# To verify on Linux:
# $ sha256sum -c *-CHECKSUM
# Windows users use http://www.slavasoft.com/hashcalc/

89b708de224e989cbda9c5bf8feebd38d36a16f1765c60648ec2161d2bb1d551
Omega-12-i686-Live.iso

$ sha256sum -c *-CHECKSUM
sha256sum: *-CHECKSUM: No such file or directory

sha256sum Omega-12-i686-Live.iso

does produce the right sha256sum, but the connection is not https and
it's the only place that sha256sum can be found. Even Google doesn't
find it:

Would  you burn?

I suppose the procedure is the same as burning a CD iso?

Note: This image is absolutely not necessary if you already have
Fedora installed. I'm only checking it to suggest to would be Linux
users who are afraid of having to install the codecs and readers
paraphernalia.
