The lat­est, sta­ble Linux for your desk­top.

• Ubuntu Desk­top 17.10 (Live) • Fe­dora Work­sta­tion 27 • MX Linux 17

Ubuntu Desk­top 17.10 (Live) Ubuntu comes with ev­ery­thing you need to run your or­gan­i­sa­tion, school, home or en­ter­prise. All the es­sen­tial ap­pli­ca­tions, like an of­fice suite, browsers, email and me­dia apps come pre-in­stalled, and thou­sands of more games and ap­pli­ca­tions are avail­able in the Ubuntu Soft­ware Cen­tre. Ubuntu 17.10, co­de­named Art­ful Aard­vark, is the first re­lease to in­clude the new shell; so it’s a great way to pre­view the fu­ture of Ubuntu. You can try it live from the bun­dled DVD. Fe­dora Work­sta­tion 27 Fe­dora Work­sta­tion is a pol­ished, easy-to-use op­er­at­ing sys­tem for laptop and desk­top com­put­ers, with a com­plete set of tools for de­vel­op­ers and makers of all kinds. It comes with a sleek user in­ter­face and the com­plete open source tool­box. Previous re­leases of Fe­dora have in­cluded Yumex-DNF as a graph­i­cal user in­ter­face for pack­age man­age­ment. Yumex-DNF is no longer un­der ac­tive de­vel­op­ment; it has been re­placed in Fe­dora 27 by dnf­dragora, which is a new DNF front-end that is writ­ten in Python 3 and uses libYui, the wid­get ab­strac­tion li­brary writ­ten by SUSE, so that it can be run us­ing Qt 5, GTK+ 3, or ncurses in­ter­faces. The ISO im­age can be found in the oth­er_isos folder on the root of the DVD. MX Linux 17 MX Linux is a co­op­er­a­tive ven­ture be­tween the an­tiX and for­mer MEPIS com­mu­ni­ties, which uses the best tools and tal­ent from each dis­tro. It is a mid-weight OS de­signed to com­bine an el­e­gant and ef­fi­cient desk­top with simple con­fig­u­ra­tion, high sta­bil­ity, solid per­for­mance and a medium-sized foot­print. MX Linux is a great no­fuss sys­tem for all types of users and ap­pli­ca­tions. The ISO im­age can be found in the oth­er_isos folder on the root of the DVD.
