CruxEX 2012 Linux Live CD is based on CRUX 2.7.1 (latest version), which is all Linux enthusiasts/nerds favorite OS. (CRUX is a lightweight, i686-optimized Linux distribution targeted at Experienced Linux users). CruxEX 2012 [version 120502] uses the Xfce 4.10 Desktop environment (released 120428). I have replaced the original Crux kernel 220.127.116.11 with “my” special kernel 3.3.4-exton, with support for “extra everything”.
Kernel 3.3.4 is the latest available stable kernel as of 120502. Among all installed applications in CruxEX 2012 are Firefox 12.0, Gimp, Thunderbird 12.0, Geany and Wicd. Furthermore compilation tools so that you can install programs from source.
