Parsix GNU/Linux, a live and installation DVD based on Debian, aiming to provide a ready-to-use, easy-to-install desktop and laptop-optimized operating system, is now at version 6.0 Test 3 and is ready for testing.
The developers' ultimate goal is to provide an easy-to-install desktop and laptop-optimized operating system based on Debian's Wheezy branch and the latest stable release of GNOME desktop environment.
"A lot of updates have been made and all reported issues have been resolved. All base packages have been synchronized with Debian Wheezy repositories as of March 15, 2014. Stay tuned! Our goal is to release the final version within a week or two," reads the official announcement.
The developers have explained that their distribution now uses GNOME Shell 3.10.3 (there is no indication that they might switch to 3.12 in time for the final release). It's also based on Linux kernel 3.12.15, which is a rather new version, and on Debian Wheezy (7.0) platform.
Remember that this is a development version and it should NOT be installed on production machines. It is intended for testing purposes only.
