    Run your Ubuntu/Debian 64 bit system with kernel 4.1.3!

    Softpedia 150808:
    Arne Exton, an independent GNU/Linux developer, known for many Linux kernel-based operating systems, posted an interesting tutorial a couple of days ago about how to install the latest Linux 4.1 LTS kernel on Ubuntu, Linux Mint, or Debian distros.

    RaspArch :: Run Arch Linux on your Raspberry Pi 2

    A member on wrote this about RaspArch:

    Ive used Slackware, Debian, Gentoo, Ubuntu & Arch. I prefer Arch. Ubuntu is easier to install, Arch is easier to keep up to date. You do not go through big, painful, changes every year instead you just update, once in a while, make changes if instructed. Arch has most of the benefits of Gentoo without the pain of recompiling _everything_. When you do need to build a package in Arch its painless especially if you use one of the tools that support Aur (I like yaourt). Arch avoids the politics of Debian and Ubuntu and delivers a great Linux distribution. RaspArch now brings these advantages to the PI 2.

    ExTiX 15.1 64 bit is ready!

    I am having some issues with Extix 15.1 64-bit, after installing on Lenovo Y550 please check the Linux-Distributions forum here on

    I think the download was the problem as the md5hash doesn't seem to match.

    PuppEX Tahr Linux Live CD with kernel 3.17.2-puppex

    A "review" of PuppEX Tahr

    I simply must cite a member of Puppy Linux Forum: This is astonishing - outstanding even, boots fast and absolutely fly's on my old X60 Thinkpad. Lost for words to describe just how good this is. Anyone that want's a real OS experience and more should try this. Still playing - looking better all the time.
