Salix Openbox 14.1 Beta 1, a GNU/Linux distribution based on Slackware that is simple, fast, easy to use, and based on the Openbox window manager, has been released and is now available for download.
The Openbox version of Salix has been released has arrived and it’s pretty similar with the previous flavors that have been made available until now in this branch. This window manager is a very light one, which means that it can run on low-end hardware and on old computers.
“The 32-bit iso image includes both SMP (multiple processor capable) and non-SMP (single processor) kernels. The non-SMP kernel is mostly intended for machines that can’t run the SMP kernel, which is anything older than a Pentium III, and some models of the Pentium M that don’t support PAE.”
Yes, it is that time again! After well over a year of planning, development, and testing, the Slackware Linux Project is proud to announce the latest stable release of the longest running distribution of the Linux operating system, Slackware version 14.1!
