Hands on with Caine Linux: Pentesting and UEFI compatible

Caine 6.0 is derived from Ubuntu 14.04.1 (64 bit). That is a Long Term Support release, so that is a good thing. It uses the MATE desktop, rather than Unity, which is another really good thing. The ISO image can be obtained from their Downloads page (duh), and is relatively large (2.68GB). Read more

Linux Mint 17.1 finally makes MATE's fancy Compiz graphics easy to use

Linux Mint isn’t chasing touch interfaces, rethinking the way we use the desktop, or enacting any other grand experiment. It’s just a polished, modern Linux desktop system—and that’s why people love it.

This combination gives me a fully optimized base OS with a desktop environment (DE) that is known for being the most feature-rich. However, I am always on the lookout for a DE that can run efficiently on less-powerful (aka less expensive) hardware, with an easy to manage OS. Read more
