DVD OF THE MONTH
Linux operating systems for desktops and servers.
SparkyLinux 4.7 LXDE (64-bit live)
This is a Debian-based Linux distribution that provides an out-of-the-box operating system with a set of slightly customised lightweight desktops. Sparky is targeted at computer users who want to replace their existing, proprietary OS with one that’s open source. It comes in two variants—the Basic Edition and the Home Edition. The bundled DVD carries the Home Edition, which has all the tools, codecs, plugins and drivers preinstalled.
This is a lightweight Linux operating system designed for clustered deployments providing automation, security and scalability for your most critical applications. CoreOS Container Linux is a leading container operating system, designed to be managed and run at a massive scale, with minimal operational overheads. Applications with Container Linux run in containers, providing developer-friendly tools for deploying software. It runs on nearly any platform whether physical, virtual, or the private/public cloud. CoreOS powers the world’s container infrastructure. You can find the ISO image in the other_isos folder on the root of the DVD. The complete guide on how to use and install it can be found at https://coreos.com.
Games for MS Windows
All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, so we thought of bundling a few of the most popular open source games along with this month’s OSFY DVD. The DVD contains executable files of games like 0 A.D., The Battle for Wesnoth, MegaGlest, etc, that you can enjoy on MS Windows.
