Nice list of Ubuntu based Linux Distributions and Live CD’s (I counted 33). The list includes everything from full distributions like Ubuntu and Mint to specialty Live CD’s like BackTrack and XBMC.
Don’t forget about UNetbootin which will allow you build a bootable Live USB Drive from probably most of the Projects in the list.
Arch Linux 2012.10.06 was announced on October 7th and it seems that I missed the 2012.09.07 release which was announced on September 8th and the 2012.08.04 release announced on August 4th. As with all releases the live system can be used for new installs or as a rescue system.
I’m downloading the ISO as I type this post and will begin the install shortly. If anything interesting comes up I’ll write it up.
It has been four years since the last release of Damn Small Linux (DSL 4.4). On August 3rd John Andrews announced Release Candidate for DSL 4.11 which include the following improvements and additions:
- Updated JWM
- Updated Dillo
- Added xChat
- Added sic IRC client
- Added XCalc-color
- Removed flminical
- Removed gphone
- Removed naim/nicq/nirc
- Switching between JWM and Fluxbox does not require restarting X
- Bug Fixes
- Themes and Menus
The ISO weighs in at 50.6 MB which is less than a MB increase compared to the 49.7 MB of version 4.4. The Linux kernel is at 2.4.31 which was upgraded from 2.4.26 in version 4.0. And as John mentions in the announcement “obviously this release will not work with the latest hardware technology”.
