ExTiX 19.5 Officially Released with Linux Kernel 5.1

ExTiX 19.5

A new version of ExTiX, "The Most Advanced Linux System", developed by Arne Exton, has been released with the latest series Linux Kernel 5.1 and the graphical environment LXQt 0.14.1.

Based on the recent Ubuntu 19.04 Disco Dingo, ExTiX 19.5 is available featuring the LXQt lightweight graphical environment by default instead of GNOME, along with the latest and most advanced Linux Kernel 5.1 and the upcoming Kodi 19 Matrix media center with pre-installed extensions for Netflix, Amazon Prime and Plex.

ExTiX 19.5 comes with the graphical installer Refract Installer Instead of Ubuntu's Ubiquity, default support is added for UEFI-enabled computers, the latest Nvidia 418.74 graphics drivers, and the Refracta Snapshot utility that allows you to create your own installer based on ExTiX 19.5 and Ubuntu 19.04.

Smaller ISO image and other improvements

When compared to the previous version, ExTiX 19.5 is lighter thanks to its smaller ISO image of only 1.22 GB. This means that you will be able to run ExTiX directly from RAM without any problems.

The ISO of ExTiX 19.5 is hybrid, this means that you can put it on a DVD disc or put it on a USB memory and it supports persistence, which means that you can save configurations or files for future sessions without having to install anything on the computer. You can download ExTiX 19.5 from the official website.
