NEWS about ExTiX 14 version 140222

1. The ExTiX ISO is now a ISO-hybrid, which means that it can very easily be transferred (copied) to a USB pen drive. You can then even run ExTiX 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.
2. Another big improvement is that ExTiX 14 can run from RAM. Use Boot alternative 2 (Copy to RAM...

Why use Linux?

Posted 02-15-2014 at 03:33 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I found something memorable about Linux on the Internet. I reproduce it here. The author is unknown to me.

: () { : | : & } ; :

We tell people we use Linux because it's secure. Or because it's free, because it's customizable, because it's free (the other meaning), because it has excellent community support...
