    Hardware Addition

    Updated the BIOS using FreeDOS on a USB stick. It was A03, it's now A15.

    Hardware Addition

    Decided the Quadro 2000 was inadequate and/or wrong type of card for general purpose use, so I've replaced it with a GTX 1050 Ti.

    DebEX Gnome (Debian Buster/Sid) – Build 171026 – with Gnome 3.26 (latest), Mate 1.18 (latest), Refracta tools, Nvidia 387.12 and kernel 4.13

    Softpedia 171027 about DebEX Gnome: "After announcing the latest update to the DebEX KDE Plasma GNU/Linux distribution, developer Arne Exton informed us about the release of a new build of DebEX GNOME Edition.

    DebEX GNOME is a variant of the Debian-based DebEX operating system built around the GNOME desktop environment. The new release, DebEX GNOME Build 171026 is shipping with the latest GNOME 3.26 desktop environment by default, which is accompanied by the lightweight, GNOME 2-based, MATE 1.18 desktop environment.

    Just like DebEX KDE Plasma, the DebEX GNOME Edition is based on the Debian Testing and Sid repositories, while the DebEX Barebone Edition remains based on Debian GNU/Linux 9 "Stretch" and Debian Unstable/Sid. The system is powered by Arne Exton's special kernel based on the Linux 4.13.4 kernel.

    "I have made a new extra version of DebEX, which I call DebEX Gnome Live DVD. It’s a pure Debian system using the testing (buster) and unstable (sid) repositories. Two Desktop Environments are pre-installed. Gnome 3.26 (latest) and Mate 1.18 (latest)," said Arne Exton in the release announcement."

    Exton|OS Light Build 170918 :: Based on upcoming Ubuntu 17.10 with Refracta tools and kernel 4.13.0-11-exton (4.13.1)

    Softpedia 171028: "GNU/Linux developer Arne Exton has released an updated version of his Exton|OS Light distro, which has been recently rebased on Canonical's latest Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful Aardvark) operating system.

    Exton|OS Light Live DVD Build 170918 is, in fact, one of the first GNU/Linux distributions to have been rebased on Ubuntu 17.10, which was officially released on October 19, 2017, as the first Ubuntu release in seven years to replace the Unity user interface with the GNOME 3 desktop environment.

    However, Exton|OS Light doesn't use GNOME, but, instead, it deploys the ultra lightweight and low on resources Openbox window manager, which the developer customized to look as modern as possible. Not to mention that Exton|OS Light ships with only a minimum of packages pre-installed.

    But the best thing about the new Exton|OS Light release comes with Refracta Tools to allow you to easily build your own live system based on Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful Aardvark)."

    DebEX KDE (Debian Buster/Sid) – Build171023 – with KDE Plasma 5.37, Refracta tools, Nvidia 384.90 and kernel 4.13.0-16-exton

    Softpedia 171027: DebEX KDE Plasma Is a Pure Debian GNU/Linux 10 "Buster" Distro with Linux 4.13

    "DebEX KDE Plasma Build 171023 is here to replace last year's Build 161001, bringing components from both the Debian Sid and Debian Testing repositories, which means that it doesn't contain any packages from Ubuntu, nor Kubuntu operating systems, thus making it a bleeding-edge GNU/Linux distribution.

    Powered by the Linux 4.13.4 kernel, DebEX KDE Plasma is a pure Debian GNU/Linux 10 "Buster" distro that ships with both KDE 4.16 and KDE Plasma 5 desktop environments. It comes pre-installed with the Nvidia 384.90 proprietary graphics driver, the Mozilla Firefox 56.0 web browser, and SMPlayer video player.
    "Ships with Refracta Tools so you can make your own Live ISO"

    The best thing about the new DebEX KDE Plasma release is that it includes Refracta Tools, which allows users to create their own live and installable ISO images based on Debian GNU/Linux 9 "Stretch" / 10 "Buster" or DebEX KDE Plasma. You don't even have to install the distro to use Refracta Tools, if you have enough system memory".

    RaspAnd Nougat 7.1.2 for Raspberry Pi 3 – Build 171019/170805 – with GAPPS, Aptoide TV and Kodi 18.0-ALPHA1 to be installed in Linux

    Softpedia 171023 about RaspAnd Nougat Build 171019: GNU/Linux developer Arne Exton announced the release of a new build of his commercial RaspAnd project that lets users run Google’s Android mobile operating system on their Raspberry Pi 3 single-board computers.

    RaspAnd Build 171019 is here to introduce support for installing the operating system from a GNU/Linux distribution as support for installing it from a Windows OS, using the win32 disk imager utility, is limited to 5GB of free space for storing files, no matter how big the SD card used is.

    “Only about 5GB can be used as data storage no matter which card you use. I have therefore today uploaded a new version, which can be (must be) installed using a Linux system,” said Arne Exton in the release announcement. “The new system from 171019 is basically the same system as the RaspAnd system from 170805.”

    Using this latest build, users will be able to use as much as 56GB free space for storing their files on RaspAnd when using a 64GB MicroSD card.”
