ExTiX Desk

Arné Exton, creator and developer of the ExTiX distribution, has reported that the latest version of this distribution already allows you to create other distributions thanks to its tools. These created distributions may be based on Ubuntu 17.04 or Ubuntu 17.10. Yes, the future version of Ubuntu that is still in development.
Of course, the distributions that We believe based on Ubuntu 17.10, they will be unstable distributions and still subject to many changes that could disturb the momentary use of the equipment, although we can always use virtual machines for testing.

Refracta-Tools from ExTiX 17.5 will allow us to create distributions based on Ubuntu 17.10 and 17.04

ExTiX 17.05 is a distribution that is based on Ubuntu and that has the Refracta-Tools, these tools are the ones that will allow us to easily create a distribution based on Ubuntu. These Refracta Tools have a wizard that helps in every step and makes it easy to create and customize Ubuntu-based distributions. However to do this we need a computer with a lot of power and a lot of ram memory, enough to load the ubuntu live-CD and that our ExTiX distribution can work. ExTiX comes with Ubuntu, KDE Plasma, and KDE Frameworks.

To create an image or a distribution based on Ubuntu, we just have to go to KDE Menu -> System -> Create a LiveCD. After this, the wizard will start and the process will take about 10 minutes, of course if we have a team with many resources, if not, the time will increase considerably.

ExTiX 17.5 is a great tool to create distributions or rather to start in the world of development and creation of distributions, but what is created is nothing more than a customization of Ubuntu, something that is far from a true distribution such as Debian, LinuxMint or Arch Linux. But it is still interesting to learn little by little to create a distribution Do not you think?
