NEWS 150122
I have made a new version of DebEX 64 bit Gnome Live DVD. It replaces version 141014. It’s a pure Debian system. It uses Gnome 3.14 and Mate 1.8.2 as Desktop environments. Gnome 3.14 is winning back disillusioned Linux users. I have installed Nvidia’s proprietary graphic driver 340.65 in this new version of DebEX. Furthermore Google Chrome to make it possible to watch Netflix movies. All other installed packages have also been updated to the latest version as of 150122.
