Bluewhite64 Linux Live DVD 13.0
A modern OS supported only on 64-bit computers
The Live DVD edition of Bluewhite64 Linux is distributed on Softpedia as a Live DVD ISO image that contains software packages optimized only for modern, 64-bit computers. It has approximately 2GB in size and needs to be deployed to a DVD disc or a USB thumb drive of 2GB or higher capacity in order to boot it from the BIOS of a computer.
Choose between KDE and Xfce sessions
From the Live DVD boot menu, the user can choose between KDE and Xfce graphical sessions. The first boot option allows you to boot into the KDE 4.3.2 desktop environment, the second one into the Xfce 4.6.1 window manager and the third one into a command-line only session. It is also possible to perform a system memory diagnostic test.
Both desktops look traditional
Both the KDE and Xfce desktop environments come with a traditional look and feel, comprised of a single-panel layout. The panel in located on the bottom edge of the screen and contains various useful applets, including a task manager, desktop switcher, main menu, system tray area and application launcher.
Includes some of the best open-source applications
Despite the fact that it features three different desktops, the distribution comes with a single software selection for all the aforementioned graphical environments. It includes some of the best open-source applications, among which we can mention SeaMonkey, aMule, aMSN, XChat, FileZilla, Pidgin, Mozilla Firefox, gFTP, Zenmap, Audacious, XMMS and OpenOffice.org.
It is no longer under active development
Sadly, the Bluewhite64 Linux project has been abandoned five years ago, in 2009, and will no longer receive software updates or security patches. It has been archived for historical references purposes only.
