Many commonly used open source applications installed by default
The boot menu doesn't have the kernel version for 1 of the 3 types listed
If you choose the option to install you get Fluxbox and KDE along with the default X-Windows System window manager twm.
The Fluxbox window manager comes with many themes and is easy to configure it with the many utils right from the Fluxbox menu's.
The KDE menu's can easily be edited with the Menu Edit configuration utility. Changing themes is also as easy as it is with Fluxbox dues to KDE's nice Control Center utility.
Despite the Forensics nature of the Live CD portion, the installed version works very much the same as a regular Debian 3.1 (Sarge) install but with many applications because it is Debian 3.1.
The utility apt-get is a very easy way to install and keep the system updated package, kernel, video and X-Windows System wise. Synaptic is also installed if you want the GUI version of apt.
Many multimedia applications are also installed like xine, k3b, xmms, with many graphics apps as well.
System administration wise there is the easy to use configuration wizards for network services, most of which are NOT enabled by default. Again for the best flexibility and user control over the distro.
Before you think this is just another Live Forensics CD, try the install option which has a nice easy to use utility. You just may like this as a distro over the Forensics part, and it will shine all the more because it still has the Forensics type of platform as an added bonus.
