Porteus 3.2.2, the first stable version of the branch

porteus 3.2.2

The new version of one of the lThe most popular lightweight distributions within Gnu / Linux, Porteus. This lightweight distribution that is based on Slackware is capable of running on a pendrive or on computers with few resources and not for that reason offer less features, but quite the opposite.

The team of Porteus created a new branch of the distribution called 3.2, a branch that is rated as unstable, however version 3.2.2 is the first of this branch that is version stable.

Porteus is a lightweight distribution that is based on slackware, however it has certain changes that make it ideal for many novice users who need to have a portable distribution. Porteus 3.2.2 can be carried on a pendrive but also on an old computer. As news, Porteus 3.2.2 arrives with PulseAudio as well as the latest version of Linux Kernel 4.9.

Porteus 3.2.2 is distributed in four versions, one for each main desktop

There are also four different versions of this distribution, four versions that change depending on the desktop. There will be a version with MATE, another version with Cinnamon, another version with XFCE and another version with KDE Plasma 5. All these versions to suit our tastes, although if we have teams with few resources, the choice of KDE Plasma 5 or Cinnamon will give us many problems. Regarding software, Porteus 3.2.2 has the latest versions of Firefox, Palemoon, Chrome, Opera, LibreOffice and WPS Office.

If we already have Porteus installed and want to update it, we only have to use the update command to have this latest version. In any case, I personally think that this distribution It is aimed at users who are a bit expert, users who know how to handle Linux or know the use of Slackware, as it is not an easy distribution to use for novice users in the Gnu / Linux world.
