George Vlahavas from the Salix OS development team, proudly announced last evening, June 19th, that the Live version of the Salix OS 13.37 MATE operating system is now available for download.
Salix OS 13.37 MATE is a flavor of the Salix operating system, which is based on the Slackware 13.37 Linux distribution and powered by the MATE (GNOME 2 clone) desktop environment.
This is the Live CD edition of Salix OS 13.37 MATE, which is also the first release ever of Salix OS to incorporate isohybrid technology, allowing users to use the dd command to install it on a USB flash drive.
"This is another Live release created using SaLT (Salix Live Technology), a new powerful system of Live tools for Slackware-based distributions, developed in-house. This is also the first ever Salix release to incorporate isohybrid technology."
"Other important applications included in this release are the Firefox web browser, the LibreOffice suite, the GIMP image editor, the Exaile music library and more. Of course the full collection of Salix system administration tools is included," the official release announcement read.
Just like the installable-only version of the Salix OS 13.37 MATE distro, this Live edition also features three modes of installation.
The full mode installs all the packages included on the ISO image, providing a complete MATE desktop environment with the Atril document viewer, the MATE power manager, the Engrampa archive manager, the MATE system utilities and many more.
The basic mode will install a basic MATE desktop, with the Caja file manager, the MATE preferences tools, the Mozilla Firefox web browser, and a nice collection of Salix system utilities, including Gslapt package manager and Sourcery Slackbuild manager, and a few panel applets. On the other hand, the core mode offers the same installation as in all other Salix OS editions.
Salix OS 13.37 MATE Live is distributed as Live CD ISO images for both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures.
