Lx4Pro Xfce 1.6
Available for download as a dual-arch Live DVD
The distribution is available for download as a dual-arch Live DVD ISO image, which means that it will work on either 32-bit (i386) or 64-bit (amd64) computers, and must be written to a DVD disc or a USB flash drive of 2GB or higher capacity.
When booting the Live DVD from the BIOS of a computer, the user will encounter a boot screen from where he or she can start the live environment with default boot options or in safe graphics mode, perform a system memory diagnostic test, as well as to boot an existing operating system from the first disk.
Lightweight graphical desktop environment that is fast and easy to use
As mentioned, the main emphasis of this Linux Mint-based operating system is on simplicity, fastness and ease of use. It features the Xfce desktop environment, which has been beautified with a custom dock (application launcher) located, strangely, on the upper part of the screen, while the main panel is on the bottom edge of the screen.
Includes a great amount of open source applications
Default applications include the BleachBit system cleaner, APTonCD installation disc creator, Banshee and Exaile audio players, Deluge BitTorrent client, GNOME Disks disk manager, flareGet download manager, GIMP image editor, Google Chrome, Opera and Midori web browsers, and LibreOffice office suite.
In addition, the Steam for Linux, PlayOnLinux, Winetricks, XChat IRC, VLC Media Player, Xfburn, Totem, Vidalla, UNetbootin, Transmission, Tomboy, Mozilla Thunderbird, Thunar, Skype, Q4Wine, Pidgin and Synaptic Package Manager apps are also included.
In conclusion, Lx4Pro Xfce is a decent operating system built on top of a stable Linux Mint based and features the lightweight Xfce desktop environment. It has been designed to provide full out-of-the-box multimedia support by including some proprietary software, such as Adobe Flash Player and Oracle Java.
