ExLight Live DVD with Enlightenment and kernel 3.13.3

MateWHAT’S NEW IN VERSION 140224?
1. ExLight is now based on upcoming Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr 64 bit (to be released in a stable version in April 2014).
2. I have replaced the Desktop environment Mate 1.6.0 with Enlightenment 0.17.3 (Beauty at your fingertips).
3. I have replaced kernel 3.12.0-7-exton with kernel 3.13.0-9-exton.
4. ExLight’s ISO file is now a ISO-hybrid, which means that it can very easily be transferred (copied) to a USB pen drive. You can then even run ExLight from the USB stick and save all your system changes on the stick. I.e. you will enjoy persistence! I’ve found two scripts which make the installation to USB very simple. The scripts are quite ingenious. My tests show that they work flawlessly on USB installations of all normal Ubuntu systems. Read my INSTRUCTION how to use the scripts.
5. Another big improvement is that ExLight 14.04 can run from RAM. Use Boot alternative 2 (Copy to RAM). When the system has booted up you can remove the disc (DVD) or USB stick. You’ll need at least 2 GB RAM to run ExLight that way.
6. The installation program Ubiquity (live installer) is now working as intended in ExLight version 140224. I.e. a new user (your user) will be created during the installation process.
