Linux For All is based on Ubuntu 16.04 and adds Fluxbox and Cairo-Dock


Linux For All (LFA) is a project created by the developer Arne Exton that starts from a specific objective: a GNU / Linux distro of type Live only available in 64-bit, based on Ubuntu but which in turn borrows aspects of Debian and that seeks to have as a central aspect the Fluxbox desktop together with the Cairo Dock launcher. In its short time of life, it has managed to build an important user base and an increasingly prominent name. And now a new build of Linux for All (LFA) arrives, 160419 which is already available for download from the project's official website. In this case, the Ubuntu version on which this project is based is 16.04 Xenial Xerus (fresh out of the oven) and Debian is 8.4 "Jessie", while the kernel used is 4.4 LTS. Unlike previous versions, in Linux For all (LFA) 160419 only the Fluxbox desktop has been integrated, known for being very light, agile and undemanding in terms of the resources it requires. Before, however, it also came with Unity, Razor-Qt and XBMC for a very multimedia experience, but for some time Exton has preferred to offer a very fast and easy alternative to adapt to a wide variety of hardware, even that not so modern.

In sum, Linux For All (LFA) 160419 is quite an interesting project of which We have already talked occasionally; It is now available for download in the form of a hybrid ISO that can be recorded on a pendrive or on a DVD, to start our equipment and test it without modifying anything in it, and then if we decide there whether to proceed with an installation to use this distro more permanently.
