Virtual Distro Sampler

Linux Mint 4.0 Daryna Community Edition

The popular Linux Mint distro, which is currently ranked fifth at DistroWatch, offers an abundance of user tools with an impressive collection of original management utilities.

SimplyMEPIS 7.0

SimplyMEPIS has attracted a loyal following with its well-designed interface and carefully selected tool set. SimplyMEPIS 7.0 includes a smart collection of applications for the home and office – with many more available for download at the MEPIS site and the Debian Stable repositories.


Our innovative Live Distro sampler lets you sample and test five great Live distributions without rebooting. While you're at it, you can also test drive the popular Ubuntu "Gutsy Gibbon" host system. We hope you enjoy this month's Linux Magazine Virtual Live Distro Sampler DVD.
