EXTON OpSuS Tumbleweed is based on openSUSE Tumbleweed, which is a rolling distribution. I.e. no need for new installations. Just run the command zypper dup and you will always get the latest stable packages/kernels. The ISO file is only of 657 MB so you will run the system very fast from a CD or a USB stick. Even in VirtualBox/VMware directly from the ISO file.

Run EXTON OpSuS with PERSISTENCE from a USB stick! You can install new programs and/or change the whole system to you liking. Everything you do will be saved directly on the USB stick.

EXTON OpSuS Tumbleweed with LXQt 0.16.1 uses kernel 5.10.9-1. Installed programs: Among many other programs, Firefox, NetworkManager, GParted and Calamares Installer. You’ll run the system as root from the beginning. Root’s password is linux. EXTON OpSuS can easily be installed to hard drive (of those who so desire). For that you shall use Calamares Installer. All programs have been updated to the latest available version as of February 3, 2021. You will enjoy persistence if you use openSUSE Imagewriter for the USB installation. You can also use Etcher (and possibly also Rufus) in Windows for the USB installation.

The system language is English.

Is EXTON OpSuS LXQt Build 210203 unique?
If you have a look at openSUSE’s official Download site you can see that there is no live LXQt version available. Furthermore OpenSUSE’ live versions should not be used to install or upgrade Tumbleweed.
