Description

Version 14.2 (build 141024/141019) of ExTiX 64 bit is based on Debian/Ubuntu. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Unity (Ubuntu). In ExTiX/ExTiX Light I have removed Unity and installed Gnome 3.14 respectively Razor-qt instead.

PROGRAM content etc
Among many other programs AbiWord, Thunderbird, GParted, Firefox, Brasero, Vlc, Gimp, Flash and win32 codecs. In addition Java and all necessary additions in order to install programs from source. All programs have been updated to the latest available stable version as of October 24 respectively October 19, 2014.

PASSWORDS
The password for root is root. There is no password for extix. You can use Sudo to become root. (Command: sudo su). You can also login to Gnome/Razor-qt as root (if you want or need to do so).

KERNEL
3.16.0-21-exton in both versions.

COMPATIBILITY
Differences: Ubuntu 14.10 and ExTiX 14.2 is different only in principle to the terms of software content.

    I had lots of bugs with Ubuntu 12.04 64bit but I liked the screenshots on distrowatch. Hence I gave it a go. Install was only possible via live - gnome session and my username was not taken. But hey all the rest is perfect. It looks good and I haven't found one single bug so far!

    Very nice (clean) linux desktop. Runs very well from DVD (much better then many I have tried before). Harddisk instakllation is also easy. No distro if you want 20 programs to do the same thing. Comes standard with all media support (file types) to view YouTube etc. out of the box (fresh install)
