    ExTiX 18.7 – “The Ultimate Linux System” – with LXQt 0.12.0, Refracta Tools, Calamares Installer and kernel 4.18.0-rc5-extix – Build 180723

    Softpedia 180724: ExTiX "The Ultimate Linux System" Now Uses Linux 4.18, Based on Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS

    "Based on packages from the Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS ("Bionic Beaver") and Debian GNU/Linux 9 "Stretch" operating system series, ExTiX 18.7 is the first release of the GNU/Linux distribution to use the forthcoming Linux 4.18 kernel series, which is currently in development and should hit the streets early next month.

    Arne Exton was brave enough to rebase his ExTiX Linux operating system on the fifth Release Candidate of Linux kernel 4.18, which is patched to allow the installation of Nvidia’s proprietary graphics drivers. Arne Exton's 4.18.0-rc5-extix kernel replaces kernel 4.16.2-exton used in the previous release, but it's an unstable kernel".

    MeX 64 bit Linux based on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS with Cinnamon 3.6.7 – Build 180426

    Softpedia 180430: MeX Linux OS Drops Linux Mint Base, It's Now Based on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. The distro uses the Cinnamon desktop environment by default

    "If previous versions of the MeX Linux distribution were based on Linux Mint, starting with build 180426, the operating system is now only based on packages from the Ubuntu and Debian GNU/Linux software repositories. The latest release is derived from the Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver) operating system series.

    "Mex Linux is no longer based on Linux Mint," said Arne Exton. "MeX Build 180426 is based only on Debian and Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Long Term Support). I have replaced the original kernel with “my” special kernel 4.15.0-19-exton. All packages in MeX Linux have been upgraded to the latest version by 180426."

    There are several new features included in MeX Linux Build 180426 besides the new Ubuntu rebasing. Among these, we can mention that the live ISO image is now an ISO-hybrid one that you can write on either DVD discs or USB flash drives, as well as the ability to run MeX Linux directly from RAM thanks to a new boot option."

    Softpedia 180424: Ubuntu-Based ExTiX Distro, the Ultimate Linux System, Updates Its Deepin Edition

    "I’ve made a new extra version of ExTiX with Deepin 15.5 Desktop (made in China!)," said Arne Exton in the release announcement. "Only a minimum of packages is installed in ExTiX Deepin. You can, of course, install all the packages you want, even while running ExTiX Deepin live, i.e. from a DVD or USB stick."

    Refracta Tools lets you create your own ExTiX Deepin Live ISO.

    While most of the components included in the ExTiX Deepin 18.4-2 release are the same as the ones available in the ExTiX 18.4 LXQt edition, you can study the full list of installed packages for details, users will be able to easily create their own ExTiX Deepin Live ISOs with the Refracta Tools, which is pre-installed.

    Softpedia 180419: ExTiX, the Ultimate Linux Operating System, Is Now Based on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

    "If you can't wait for the Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver) operating system to come out and you want to try something different, we recommend taking the latest ExTiX release for a test drive.

    ExTiX is dubbed the "Ultimate Linux System," and it's been updated earlier today by developer Arne Exton to version 18.4, based on Canonical's upcoming Ubuntu 18.04 LTS operating system. However, ExTiX is using the lightweight and modern LXQt 0.12.0 as default desktop environment instead of GNOME, and it's powered by the latest Linux 4.16.2 kernel.

    After removing GNOME I have installed LXQt 0.12.0 said Arne Exton in today's announcement. Programs won’t crash or anything like that. And I haven’t discovered any bugs to report. While running ExTiX LXQt 18.4 live or from the hard drive you can use Refracta tools (pre-installed) to create your own live installable Ubuntu system. A ten-year child can do it."
