    ExLight 64 bit Linux with Enlightenment 0.20, kernel 4.9.0-11-exton and Refracta Tools (create your own Ubuntu system)

    Softpedia 170111: Arne Exton informs us about a new release of his Ubuntu/Debian-based ExLight 64-bit Live Linux operating system, bringing us some of the latest technologies and open-source software projects.

    These days, almost all of Arne Exton's GNU/Linux distributions come pre-installed with the Refracta tools, an open-source utility that lets users create their own live system with few mouse clicks, and ExLight Build 170105 is no different. It allows you to build your own Ubuntu live system in minutes.

    "I’ve added Refracta Snapshot, which makes it possible for you to create your own live installable Ubuntu system. I mean to change everything to your liking, fire up Refracta Snapshot and wait 3 to 5 minutes until your new ISO is ready," said Arne Exton in the release announcement.

    Android-x86_64 Nougat 7.0 – Build 161107 – with GAPPS and kernel 4.4.27-exton-android-x86_64

    Run/install AndEX Nougat 7.0 in VMware Workstation and/or VirtualBox

    I have noted today how good AndEX Nougat 7.0 is running in VMware (Workstation-12.5.1-4542065). You can of course run the system (or install it) directly from the ISO file android_x86_64-nougat-7.0-gapps-exton-build-870mb-161107.iso.

    I knew already from before that AndEX runs very well in VirtualBox.
