Legacy OS Gamer 2.1
Distributed as a dual-arch Live CD
The distribution is available for download as a dual-arch Live CD ISO image of approximately 700MB in size, which means that you can use it on both 32-bit (i386) and 64-bit (x86_64) hardware platforms, using a CD disc or a USB flash drive of 1GB or higher capacity as the bootable medium.
The boot prompt is full of useful instructions for users who want to add extra kernel parameters when booting the live operating system from the bootable medium. However, most users should wait five seconds for the automatic boot with default options and drivers, or just hit the Enter key if you’re in a rush.
Old-school desktop environment designed for legacy computers
Before entering the graphical session, you must first select a keyboard layout and display server. The desktop environment is powered by the old-school IceWM window manager, which has been designed for legacy computers and uses a single-panel layout.
Includes over 100 games
As mentioned, the main emphasis of this Legacy OS edition is on gaming, providing users with a collection of over 100 games for all ages. Among some of the most popular ones, we can mention Aleph One, Duke Nukem 3D, Quake, Descent 2 and PrBoom.
Overall, the Gamer edition of Legacy OS proves to be the ideal operating system for people who want to bring legacy computers (machines with old and semi-old hardware components) to life again. It provides hours of fun for all ages!
