DBLab LX 14.04
Distributed as 4GB Live DVDs for 32-bit and 64-bit platforms
This DBLab flavor is distributed as two Live DVD ISO images of approximately 4GB in size each, designed for the 64-bit (amd64) and 32-bit (i386) hardware platforms. You must write them to USB flash drives or DVD discs in order to boot them from the BIOS of a PC.
All of the DBLab editions use the same standard boot menu found on a wide range of Ubuntu-based operating systems, designed to allow you to start the live environment with default options or in safe graphics mode, start the installer directly, as well as to boot an existing OS from the first disk or run a memory diagnostic test.
Lightweight desktop environment powered by LXDE
As mentioned, the distribution features the lightweight LXDE desktop environment, which comprises of two panels, a visible one at the bottom of the screen and a hidden one on the left side of the screen, for launching applications or interact with running programs.
Applications, lots of applications
As expected, the distribution includes a wide range of applications, from 3D graphics editors and photography tools to ISO handlers, multimedia programs, Internet tools, games and administration programs. Among some of the most important ones, we can mention Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla Thunderbird, GIMP, Skype, Audacious, Banshee, Kazam, RawTherapee, Darktable, Fotoxx, LibreOffice, AbiWord, Calibre and FileZilla.
Summing up, DBLab LX is a great Linux distribution for Lubuntu or LXDE fans who are looking for a comprehensive operating system that offers them all the necessary applications for managing their everyday tasks without hassle, even though some folks will classify it as bloatware.
