LOUD (LCSEE Optimized Ubuntu Distribution) is a modified version of the Ubuntu Linux distribution used within West Virginia University's Lane Department of Computer Science & Electrical Engineering. In addition to the standard Ubuntu packages, LCSEE Systems also maintains several packages containing software and scripts for use in the Department's classes.
LOUD was created to give the LCSEE teaching and open-use computer labs, students, and instructors, an easily maintained standard development environment. The LOUD platform is available in the Department's computing facilities and for installation on personally-owned computers.
