NEW • Distribution Release: MOPSLinux 7.0

MOPSLinux 7.0, a Slackware-based desktop Linux distribution with a custom package management tool, has been released. According to the release announcement (in Russian), this is a major upgrade and a very different system from the earlier version 6.2.2. Some of the notable changes include: a completely rewritten system installer; a much more powerful and complete package management utility; availability of several desktop environments for selection; availability of several installation modes; first release with support for 64-bit systems. Major components: Linux kernel, X.Org Server 1.7.6, KDE 4.4.2, Xfce 4.7.0-git, Openbox 3.4.11, LXDE 0.5.0, 3.2.0, Firefox 3.6.2. The installation DVD images (with support for English, Russian and Ukrainian languages) are currently available from only one (very slow) download site, but other mirrors should start providing the files shortly. Download: MOPSLinux-7.0-x86.iso (2,919MB, MD5), MOPSLinux-7.0-x86_64.iso (2,424MB, MD5).
