EXTON OpSuS 13.1 Build 140119 Fluxbox / Build 140117 GNOME / Build 131124 KDE

An openSUSE based Linux operating system that features three desktop environments
EXTON OpSuS is an open source project that provides users with three distributions of Linux based on the openSUSE operating systems. Each distro uses a different desktop environment/window manager, such as KDE Plasma, GNOME and Fluxbox.

Distributed as archived IMG files for 64-bit or 32-bit hardware platforms

This special project created by Arne Exton is distributed as archived IMG files that must be downloaded, extracted and written on USB thumb drives of 1GB or higher capacity in order to boot them from the BIOS of a PC.

While the KDE edition has been engineered to support only 64-bit hardware platforms, the GNOME and Fluxbox editions will run well on both 32-bit (i386) and 64-bit (x86_64) computers, though they will only support 32-bit applications.

Boot options

All three EXTON OpSuS editions feature the same boot loader, which will allow the user to start the live environment with default boot options or in safe graphics mode, using the failsafe option.

KDE, GNOME or Fluxbox?

Whether you are a KDE fan or a GNOME lover, or you just want to use a minimal window manager on a low-end machine, EXTON OpSuS has them all. They are pure, untouched and beautified with amazing wallpapers and a great selection of open source applications.

Default applications

Default applications include the VLC Media Player, Mozilla Firefox web browser, Mozilla Thunderbird email and news client, GIMP image editor, LibreOffice office suite, FileZilla file transfer client and GParted partition editor.

Bottom line

Summing up, EXTON OpSuS has something for everybody, a beautiful KDE Plasma desktop environment, a modern GNOME Shell graphical interface, a classic GNOME session, and a super fast Fluxbox window manager, all of them built on top of the latest stable openSUSE release.
