Distro Hoppin`: Saline OS 1.3

Filed under
Linux

As this Debian-based operating system is quite easy to install, setup and, once that is done, it lets you run about your daily computing routine.

But first of all, you will need a blank DVD or an USB stick with at least 1 GB of space, as the ~900 MBs of data won't fit on a trusty old CD. Well, at least we're still far from BluRay-size distros. Big Grin

As pretty much the de facto nowadays, Saline comes with a live environment with which you can play around and see if you like it and if it likes you and your machine. Just like a blind date; no obligation to meet for a second time.

Everything went well, so I invited Saline OS into my hard drive. I did that by double clicking "Remastersys Installer" on the desktop. I think renaming it to "Installer" would've been a good idea, since Xfce only shows the first 8 letters of each shortcut, leading to a confusing "Remaster..." title, which can be a bit newbie unfriendly. Sure enough, once the user gets curious enough and highlights the icon, it will all be revealed. Moreover, there is also a link to the installer inside the "System" category within the Applications menu.
