Linvo 2009.1 rc6



I'm happy to announce Linvo 2009.1 rc6.

It's a full-featured Linux distribution with a lot of applications by default, including an office suite ( extended with plugins), a good internet browser (Firefox extended with plugins), a music player that supports music collection and a lot more - Exaile, a video player, and all the available codecs. It can open all types of file formats.
It's a LiveCD, which means that you can test it without installing and after this optionally install it - it has a nice easy graphical installer.

It's the first Slackware-based LiveCD distribution with GNOME by default.
It includes NetworkManager and initng in place of sysvinit.

It also features accessibility tools.

It is also the first release with the innovative portable applications system. This allows you to download application from the site (modules section), place it where you like, and use it. It's just a single file, no directories. You can also use this application without installing it, directly from the internet. However, after this, the speed of the application is limited by the speed of your connection, of course.
Check out the "Applications" section on the website.

This is a release candidate, and despite that it's OK for using. It has a bit more things to do until the release (like language selection on the boot menu), but I decided that it's important to put it here for testing.

Direct download:

I will enjoy feedback and constructive criticism.
