    ExLight 64bit UEFI, Build 210125, based on Debian “Bullseye” (upcoming Debian 11) with Enlightenment 0.24.2 and Refracta Snapshot

    Article 210201 about ExLight Build 210125 at 9to5Linux.com by Marius Nestor (previously at Softpedia.com)

    "ExLight Linux distribution sees the light of day again after a long time sleeping with a new major release that promises a pure Debian experience with the latest kernel series and Enlightenment desktop environment.
    It’s been more than a year since ExLight Linux received an update, the last release being published on November 2019 and based on the Debian GNU/Linux 10 “Buster” operating system series, and I realized that I never wrote about ExLight on 9to5Linux since the website was launched in January 2020.

    As its name suggests, ExLight Linux aims to be a lightweight GNU/Linux distribution for not so powerful computers. To achieve that, it uses the beautiful and unique Enlightenment desktop environment/window manager by default."

    ExTiX Deepin 21.1 Live based on Deepin 20.1 (latest) with Skype, Spotify, Refracta Snapshot and kernel 5.10.4-exton :: Build 210106

    ExTiX 21.1 is now on the front page at DistroWatch.com. That will probably dramatically increase the download numbers.

    SlackEX (Slackware) live with Enlightenment 0.24.2 (latest version), kernel 5.9.6-exton and Refracta Snapshot

    Article 201114 about SlackEX Build 201112 at 9to5Linux.com by Marius Nestor (previously at Softpedia.com)

    "SlackEX Linux developer Arne Exton informs 9to5Linux about the general availability of a new version of his Slackware-based that ships with the latest Enlightenment desktop environment by default. Based on Slackware 14.2, the new SlackEX Linux release drops the lightweight Xfce desktop environment for the even more lighter and beautiful Enlightenment desktop environment/window manager. In fact, SlackEX appears to be the only live system that uses the latest Enlightenment release, version 0.24.2.

    But that’s not all that’s new in the latest SlackEX Linux release, which is now powered by the Linux 5.9 kernel series. This not only means better hardware support, but it also means you won’t find another Slackware-based live system running Linux kernel 5.9."

    DebEX Gnome – 64 bit – for UEFI computers with Gnome Desktop 3.38 (latest), Calamares Installer, Refracta Snapshot and kernel 5.9.1-exton

    Article 201019 about DebEX Gnome Build 201018 at 9to5Linux.com by Marius Nestor (previously at Softpedia.com)

    Debian-Based DebEX Linux Now Ships with GNOME 3.38 and Linux Kernel 5.9

    "Based on the Debian Testing repositories, where the development of the upcoming Debian GNU/Linux 11 “Bullseye” operating system series takes place, the new DebEX Linux release is here with goodies that no other live Linux distribution currently offers.

    For starters, the developer removed the lightweight MATE desktop environment, which was used in previous DebEX versions, and replaced it with the latest GNOME 3.38 desktop environment. So that right there might be a very good reason for many wanting to try GNOME 3.38 on Debian GNU/Linux to download this distro.

    On top of that, users will find the latest and greatest Linux 5.9 kernel series, which comes with numerous new features and improvements to support newer and more hardware. The latest Linux kernel 5.9.1 is included in this release of DebEX Linux."

    ArchEX (Arch Linux) with Deepin 20 BETA, LXQt 0.15.0, kernel 5.8.8-arch1-1, Yaourt and Calamares 3.2.17 installer – Build 200914

    Article 200914 about ArchEX Build 200914 at 9to5Linux.com by Marius Nestor (previously at Softpedia.com)

    "ArchEX Linux Now Ships with Deepin and LXQt Desktops, Linux Kernel 5.8.8

    ArchEX is a live Linux distribution for everyone who wants to use Arch Linux but doesn’t want to go to all the trouble of installing Arch Linux, which in 2020 is still a thing. It follows the same motto as Arch Linux, “Keep It Simple Stupid.”

    The new ArchEX Linux release comes with the Deepin Desktop Environment or DDE, which everyone knows it’s an eye candy Linux desktop environment, from the Deepin 20 Linux distribution. Deepin Desktop 15.11 is included in this release.

    Many other distributions are using the Deepin Desktop, and you can even install it yourself from your distro’s repositories if you want to see what the fuss is all about. But what sets ArchEX apart is that is ships with a dual-desktop setup consisting of Deepin Desktop and the latest LXQt 0.15.0 desktop environment.

    Users will be able to choose between the two pre-installed desktop environments from the login screen, which is powered by LightDM. The Deepin Desktop being the default one, it comes with various special Deepin apps, such as the Deepin Screen Recorder. All in all, you’ll love Deepin Desktop."

    Multiboot Linux live with Ventoy – “A New Bootable USB Solution” :: 200524

    Same principle as Easy2Boot, except E2B is textmode, and wants to keep ISOs sorted by type (Linux, various species of Windows, DOS, couple others) -- just prep the stick once, then copy ISOs. I've had over 50 ISOs on a single 128GB stick. Sure is handy compared to the old way of doin' it.

    Anyway, thanks, I'll give it a try -- we can never have too many such tools, especially since sometimes one works with some ISO and another doesn't.

    Multiboot Linux live with Ventoy – “A New Bootable USB Solution” :: 200524

    Just a Windows install? Nice that you can get Linux ISOs on USB with it, but when you don't have a Windows machine, it doesn't help.

    Run Android Pie on your PC :: AndEX Pie (Android-x86_64) with GAPPS (Google Play Store etc.), Spotify, Clash of Clans and Angry Birds

    Article 200307 about AndEX Pie at 9to5Linux.com by Marius Nestor (previously at Softpedia.com)

    "AndEX Pie, the project that lets you run Android 9.0 Pie on your PC, has a new version that appears to run better than the Android-x86’s latest release.

    As I reported last month, Android-x86 9.0 finally arrived to let you run the Android 9 Pie mobile operating system on your personal computer. AndEX developer has thoroughly tested the latest Android-x86 release and reports that he experienced lots of freezes and crashes.

    Therefore, he decided to build a special version of his AndEX project, which also lets you run Android on your PC, based on Android 9.0 Pie. AndEX already had a version that let you run Android 10 on your desktop or laptop computer.

    Built using the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) sources, the new AndEX Pie release is comes with the same features as Android-x86 9.0 Pie, as well as numerous other pre-installed applications.

    Among these, there’s the GAPPS (Google Apps) package that include various Google services like Google Play Store, as well as the Brave web browser Aptoide package manager, Root Explorer file manager, Spotify music player, and Clash of Clans and Angry Birds games."
