Absolute 14.04 Released

Filed under
Linux

Paul Sherman announced the release of Absolute 14.0 last October following the Slackware 14.0 release. Since then it's been updated a few times, the latest two just this month. It's been far too long since I had a look-see at Absolute and now seems the perfect time to remedy that.

Absolute Linux aims to be a lightweight and easier version of Slackware. Back in the day they had included several original tools to make configuration easier, but their installation still looked (and was) very much Slackware. Today, the installer hasn't changed much and, in fact, it still offers to install LiLo. I don't know anyone that uses LiLo anymore.
