Exton|OS Kiosk (ISO file of 344 MB!) build 141122 is based on Ubuntu 14.10 64 bit (released October 23, 2014) and Debian Jessie.

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. The system language is ENGLISH...
