Debian Testing Rolling Release

XFCE 4.10

Unlike our previous releases, this is a Solo XFCE build, focusing on bringing XFCE visually on par with modern desktop enviroments while at the same time keeping stability and speed a top priority.

Just a suggestion, but don't you think you should make it a bit more obvious that this is a 32bit distro only? Other than saying it is a PAE kernel? The only place it says 32bit openly is in the FAQ. A user shouldn't have to look that far to see this. I hope you make a 64bit version as it does look interesting.

Ray, I confess I haven't used NeroLinux before, basically because when I found out about it's exitence was thru the anouncement they would leave all Linux development, and anyway I was quite happy with K3B.

But knowing it will not have any fixes/updates or new features.....what made you decide on using it? Familiarity with the Windows version or some feature I haven't seen? I'm curious.

Don't get me wrong, in my case, with the use I have in mind, using a familiar outlay is beneficial, but I'ld like to know your view on this. Thanks.

i guess the answer is because every other linux burner can be installed by any user at any point in time, its a few clicks to remove nero, but its not easy to find a working version that is licensed ... on the other hand, i guess i just wanted to add a little twist in the release, give people something to talk about :)

But remember that Makulu is a rolling release. Hence backports. :)
