4MLinux Allinone Edition12.0 / 13.0 Beta
4MLinux is a freely distributed, minimalistic and open source Linux distribution specifically designed to allow users to create Linux-based operating systems from scratch. This edition contains four of the 4MLinux editions.
Among the project’s official editions, we can mention 4MLinux NET Edition (also known as 4MLinux), 4MLinux Game Edition, 4MLinux Media Edition, 4MLinux Multiboot Edition, 4MLinux Rescue Edition, 4MLinux Server Edition, and 4MLinux Core Edition.
They are all available for download on Softpedia, and can be used for general system maintenance, gaming and multimedia tasks, as a capable and secure server using the inetd daemon, to rescue broken systems, as well as to install other Linux distributions.
This edition includes four 4MLinux flavors
Even if it’s called 4MLinux Allinone Edition, this flavor includes only four of the 4MLinux editions, such as Media Edition, Rescue Edition, Game Edition and Server Edition. It is distributed as a single Live CD ISO image that can be written to CDs or USB flash drives. Both 64-bit and 32-bit architectures are supported at this time.
The boot prompt of the Live CD is very simple, allowing users to only start the live environment with default settings or using the VESA framebuffer, in case the first option does not recognize the graphics card.
Uses the same desktop environment as other 4MLinux editions, but includes numerous apps
Users will be asked to input a password for the root account, which will be used to log into the live session. However, the distribution will drop them to a shell prompt, from where they need to type the “startx” command to start the graphical desktop.
The desktop environment used in 4MLinux Allinone Edition is the same as the one used on other 4MLinux flavors, comprised of a system monitoring widget on the desktop and a bottom taskbar for launching applications and switching between virtual workspaces.
It is full of applications and games that will please everyone. Among some of the most popular ones, we can mention SMPlayer, DVD Shrink, Audacity, Mozilla Firefox, Wine, Mozilla Thunderbird, QupZilla, SeaMonkey, GParted, and others.
In conclusion, 4MLinux Allinone Edition is a true all-in-one Linux distribution that provides users with a great collection of games, servers, system rescue and multimedia applications in a minimal package.
