If you’re interested in testing the 4MLinux 15.0 Beta operating system, you are invited to download the Live ISO image, which was designed from the ground up to support only 32-bit software packages, right now from Softpedia. However, please try to keep in mind that this is a pre-release version, not suitable for deployment in production environments where stability is of the essence.
