For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "plasma-desktop" package and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

Una distro muy rapida o.o, todo va muy bien, algunos paquetes como algunos emuladores no los encontre en los repos, pero aun asi cumple su cometido, no pense que esta distro fuera tan rapida y amistosa al usuario. La instalacion fue muy sencilla y solo una vez se tiene que cambiar al idioma deseado. Ojala no quede en el olvido esta distro, seria una pena u.u

Regression from the earlier 4.0... versions.
The supplied iso is always not hybrid and weird, if burned onto a cd you loose the language selection item in the boot menù if copied onto an usb stick with unetbootin (simply dd-ed the usb won't eorks) it boots UEFI machines but not 64bit old bios machines when instead 4.0... worked.

Installer is clearly an old school installer for bios equipped machine, it seems that id dd-ed the iso (and we have already seen that it doesn't work) on a single partition.

No way to have a working installation on an UEFI 2015 machine even if booted as UEFI live system.

XFS support not present has to be installed if you plan to install to xfs partitions (to me the best due to its reduced write for an ssd).

Some troubles with a Broadcom BCM43142 but discovering the module they hide in ftp archive and installin it with upgradepkg --install-new broadcom... , configuring the net as static and adding manually your hot-spot configuration to wpa_supplicant.conf using wpa_passphrase it works.

After 1 day and an half spent to make all working and trying to install?
I find it was better to keep alive the i686 version really useful to revive a bunch of hardware still working which lies around and they are experienced instead to do something useless even if it seems simply a remaster of a Slackware current with a well done job on desktop manager and in tranlastion in latvian but 64bit machine apartt some old netbook with i.e. Atom N455 are all UEFI.

Only x86_64 but unable to install on UEFI if you have a not problematic wireless chip it's good only as live-cd.

Maybe better if they help Slackware keep going supplying FVWM customization and latvian translations.

Pros: Rock solid base (Slackware)
Up to date packages
Really lightweight
Not DE bloated, they have chosen one (very lightweight) and made it pefect
Really pleasant to see and to use

Cons: It starts in latvian, not so immediate to find out how to change language
Iso image works only if burned on cd even if they say it's suitable also for usb
Conky to bloated, a less information would make it more immediately readable

In 17 years I tried I lot of distros, there's something to learn but not so much and it's easy enough. It deserve a try.
To me it's lovely.
