Softpedia's article about Exton|OS 150211

After releasing the first GNU/Linux distribution with Linux 3.18 kernel a couple of days after its launch back in December 2014, Arne Exton did it again, as he just announced today on Twitter that the his Exton|OS with MATE has been updated to version 150211 and includes a custom 3.19.0-5-exton kernel package based on the upstream Linux kernel 3.19.

NEWS 150211

Exton|OS 64 bit with Mate 1.6.2 :: build 140415 :: (Ubuntu 14.04 in advance)

Posted 04-15-2014 at 10:13 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

Exton|OS is based on upcoming Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit (to be released in a stable version April 26, 2014) and Debian Jessie. Exton|OS’s ISO file a ISO-hybrid, which means that it can very easily be transferred (copied) to an USB pen drive. You can then even run Exton|OS from the USB stick and save all your system changes on the stick. I.e. you will enjoy persistence! I’ve found two scripts which make the installation to USB very simple. The scripts are quite ingenious. My tests show that they work flawlessly...
