editor's review




Generations Linux is an open source distribution of Linux designed with usability in mind, providing users with a modern and familiar desktop environment, as well as a large base of powerful software like office tools, software development, Internet utilities, games, and support for laptops.

It is available for download as a dual-arch Live CD

The Generations Linux distribution can be downloaded from Softpedia as a dual-arch Live CD ISO image, which means that you can write it onto a CD disc or USB flash drive and boot it on modern 64-bit computers or old 32-bit machines.

Minimal boot menu with a help screen

The Live CD boot menu is very minimal, providing users only with a help screen, accessible by pressing the F2 key, that offers detailed information about available boot options. To start the live system simply press Enter.

Looks like Windows XP

The graphical desktop environment has been tweaked in such a way that it looks like Windows XP. It comprises of a taskbar located on the bottom edge of the screen, from where users can access the main menu, launch their favorite applications, cycle between the four virtual workspaces, interact with running programs, as well as to access essential system functions.

Includes useful tools

With Generations Linux, you will be able to view images, interact with your webcam, surf the Internet, capture the screen, connect to remote desktops, write text files, execute Linux commands, make basic math calculations, listen to music, watch movies, send and receive emails, kill unresponsive programs, as well as to install additional apps or update existing ones.

It is no longer under active development

The distribution is no longer under active development, which means that the software included is old and no updates will be made available. It has been archived for historical references purposes only.
