Linux News Today: PCLinuxOS 64 LXDE 2016.07 Community Edition Released with Linux Kernel 4.6.3
We reported a few days ago that PCLinuxOS tester Ika has announced the release of his PCLinuxOS 64 Xfce 2016.07 and PCLinuxOS 64 LXDE 2016.07 Community Edition operating systems.
In this article, we would like to tell you a little bit about the PCLinuxOS 64 LXDE 2016.07 Community Edition release, which is built around the lightweight LXDE desktop environment, but also shipping with the same core components as PCLinuxOS 64 Xfce 2016.07 Community Edition.
Powered by Linux kernel 4.6.3, the PCLinuxOS 64 LXDE 2016.07 distribution has been fully synchronized with the PCLinuxOS software repository, which means that it includes all the security patches and software versions available on the official PCLinuxOS editions.
A super fast and well-designed GNU/Linux distribution
Just like the PCLinuxOS 64 Xfce 2016.07 Community Edition flavor, PCLinuxOS 64 LXDE 2016.07 Community Edition is a well-designed and super fast operating system for those old and dusty computers, but please try to keep in mind that you’ll need to have PCs with 64-bit CPUs to run and install the distribution.
As usual, the flavor is distributed in two variants, Mini and Full. While the PCLinuxOS 64 LXDE 2016.07 Community Edition Mini ISO image is designed with the advanced user in mind, allowing them to fully customize the OS for their needs, the Full ISO image is what GNU/Linux beginners and intermediate users need to download to enjoy the OS.
As for the GNU/Linux applications included in this release, it looks like nothing was changed from last month’s PCLinuxOS 64 LXDE 2016.06 release, only the version numbers, as mentioned above. Download PCLinuxOS 64 LXDE 2016.07 Community Edition right now via our website and make sure you join the discussion on the official forum thread in case you run into any trouble while using the OS.
