LFA (Linux For All) 13.10 64 bit with Mate and four other Desktop Environments

Posted 11-20-2013 at 12:16 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

The system is a remaster of Ubuntu 13.10 – codenamed "Saucy Salamander", released on October 17, 2013. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Unity 7.1 (Ubuntu). I have added LXDE, Mate 1.6.0, Razor-qt 0.4.1 and XBMC 12.0 ("An award-winning free and open source (GPL) software media player and entertainment hub for digital media") as alternatives, so that everyone on the spot (during live operation) can compare the different five Desktop Environments.
