Here is the first Live beta release of our new Salix edition, using the MATE Desktop Environment. For anyone not familiar with MATE, it's a GNOME2 fork, that continues development of the GNOME 2.x branch. MATE uses the traditional desktop metaphor that was abandoned for newer GNOME 3.x releases. There was a lot of work involved by the MATE developers with forking MATE and most issues that appeared due to forking have been ironed out. The desktop experience provided by the MATE Desktop should now be on par with that of GNOME 2.32.x, with the added advantage that MATE is actually actively developed.
This Live Mate beta1 DVD release includes the same programs as the Salix Mate beta1 installation edition.
It would be great if you could download and test this new Salix Live MATE edition. You can download the Live beta1 ISO images from Sourceforge, using the following links:
