Requesting download links for ISO of U-lite Linux and Fluxbuntu


I have tried searching the net to download ISOs of U-lite Linux and Fluxbuntu, but to no avail. It would be a very helpful if someone provides the needful.

Thank you,

U-Lite has been discontinued in 2008, Fluxbuntu in 2007. That explains why you can't find ISOs for them.

You had a reply on 4/28, you just did not like it apparently. Both are discontinued so no iso's to be had and both are 7 to 8 years old so both are unsupported as well..

Silpio,

I hope you have better luck picking lottery numbers!

Here is the Distrowatch list of discontinued distributions to save you wasting further time:

Do Mint, Ubuntu, Debian, Zorin OS etc etc have no appeal?

Here are some other current Linux distros:

There may not be any working repos for a discontinued OS, such as Fluxbuntu 7.10
Installing fluxbox on a supported OS with working repos is no big deal.

Most likely, unless there's an archive somewhere or the OP has stored copies of his/her own software.
