Updated Today at 05:35 AM by exton

Yet another version of LFA (Linux for All) is out. This time based on Ubuntu 14.10, codenamed Utopic Unicorn, released October 23, 2014. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Unity (Ubuntu). I have added LXDE, Razor-qt and XBMC (An award-winning free and open source (GPL) software media player and entertainment hub for digital media) as alternatives, so that everyone on the spot (during live operation) can compare the different four Desktop Environments.

Exton|OS 64 bit with Mate 1.8.1 :: build 141117

Posted 11-17-2014 at 10:44 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

The installation to hard drive is now so simple that a 10 year old child can do it. Watch a SLIDESHOW of the hard drive installation process....
