Fedora Xfce Live CD 21
Distributed as 32-bit and 64-bit Live CDs
You can download this custom Fedora distribution through Softpedia’s secure servers or from its official website (see link above) as two Live CD ISO images, one for each of the supported hardware platforms (64-bit and 32-bit). Please note that you must burn the ISO image onto CD discs or write them on USB flash drives of 1GB or higher capacity in order to boot them from the BIOS of a computer.
The Live CDs use a standard boot menu that can also be found on many other official or unofficial Fedora spins. The main emphasis is on starting the live environment without too much fuss. For more advanced options, such as the ability to test the RAM, boot an existing operating system from the first disk drive or start the live session in safe graphics mode, you can access the Troubleshooting entry.
A lightweight and easy to use desktop environment powered by Xfce
As its name suggests, the default and only desktop environment of the Fedora Xfce Live CD distro is Xfce, a lightweight graphical desktop interface that comprises of a top panel (taskbar) and a bottom dock (application launcher).
Includes a lightweight set of open source applications
As expected from a lightweight distribution, the default applications are carefully selected to also be lightweight for the system. Among some of the most important ones, we can mention Claws Mail email client, Liferea news reader, Midori web browser, Pidgin IM client, Transmission torrent downloader, Parola media player, Pragha audio player, and AbiWord word processor.
Summing up, the Xfce edition of Fedora Linux is a very stable and fast operating system suitable for low-end machines and computers with old and semi-old hardware components.
