Linux News Today: Debian GNU/Linux 8.5 "Jessie" Live Editions Are Now Available for Download
We reported last week on the general availability of new install mediums for the Debian GNU/Linux 8.5 “Jessie” operating system, as well as the release of the last update for Debian GNU/Linux 7 “Wheezy.”
It took a week, but the Debian Project team managed to publish, just a few moments ago, the Live DVD editions of the Debian GNU/Linux 8.5 “Jessie” distribution, which are specially designed Live flavors built around various popular desktop environments. These can be used to showcase the latest Debian releases to your friends or customers.
As expected, Debian GNU/Linux 8.5 “Jessie” Live editions ship with the GNOME, KDE, Xfce, LXDE, Cinnamon, and MATE desktop environments, and there’s also the standard Live CD that doesn’t include any graphical desktop environment. This means that users can use it to either install a graphical interface of their choice or create their own Debian Live re-spin.
Download Debian GNU/Linux 8.5 “Jessie” Live ISOs
As usual, through this article, we are offering you the possibility of downloading the Debian GNU/Linux 8.5 GNOME, Debian GNU/Linux 8.5 KDE, Debian GNU/Linux 8.5 Xfce, Debian GNU/Linux 8.5 Cinnamon, Debian GNU/Linux 8.5 MATE, and Debian GNU/Linux 8.5 Standard Live editions right now via our website, where you’ll be able to access Live ISO images for 64-bit or 32-bit computers.
However, please remember that, if you are already using one of the Debian editions mentioned above, or Debian GNU/Linux 8 “Jessie” for that matter, there’s no need to download anything. That’s because you’ll get all the security fixes and software updates included in these new ISO images through the main software repositories of the distribution. Debian GNU/Linux 8.5 “Jessie” install-only ISO are available via our website as well.
