Exton|OS Mate and Exton|OS Light are based on Ubuntu 64 bit and Debian.

Exton|OS's two ISO files are ISO-hybrids, which means that they can easily be transferred (copied) to a USB stick. You can then even run Exton|OS from the USB stick and save all your system changes on the stick. I.e. you will enjoy persistence! Such an installation is done in the same way as a hard drive installation. Or you can use UNetbootin in Windows or Linux.

Google Chrome is installed in both versions (so you can use Netflix).

Refracta tools are pre-installed in Exton|OS Mate Build 161231. Use them to create your own live installable Ubuntu system.

Another great thing is that Exton|OS can run from RAM. Use Boot alternative 3 (Copy to RAM). When the system has booted up you can remove the disc (DVD/CD) or USB stick. You'll need at least 2 GB RAM to run Exton|OS that way.
