NEWS 20141130
I’ve made yet a new version (20141130) of exGENT Live DVD. Now with Xfce4 and Lxqt (The next generation of the Lightweight Desktop Environment). It is for the 64 bit architecture. I call it exGENT 2015 Xfce4 Live DVD. It replaces version 20140212 of exGENT with Gnome. Version 141130 of exGENT uses kernel 3.17.4. (Latest stable kernel). The ISO file is of 1630 MB due to the fact that this version has a lot of packages preinstalled. Among them four different Web Browsers: Firefox, Opera, Chromium and Seamonkey. Despite this exGENT version 141130 runs surprisingly fast from DVD or USB. Faster than most other Linux live systems. All installed packages in exGENT have been updated to the latest available version by 141130.

Porthole
You can (if you like) use Porthole Package Manager, which is preinstalled in exGENT version 141130. Porthole is a front-end for Portage, the Gentoo Package management system. It allows you to browse through available software packages and install them easy as pie.

Who is exGENT/Gentoo for?
Experienced Linux users or those who really want to learn Linux.

Quick install to hard drive
exGENT can be installed to hard drive in 3 - 10 min. (Depending on computer type). This means that all of you who might hesitate to perform a normal Gentoo installation - which can take up to a couple of days - now have the chance to get this great Linux system (Gentoo) installed on your computers very easy.
