Mystras 11.10.3

An unofficial Xubuntu remix that features a modern and elegant desktop environment
Mystras is an open-source distribution of Linux derived from the Xfce flavor of the world’s most popular free operating system, Ubuntu, and designed from the ground up to be as elegant and modern as possible, while keeping the system lightweight and fast.

It’s distributed as a dual-arch Live DVD

This unofficial Xubuntu remix can be downloaded from Softpedia as a dual-arch Live DVD ISO image of approximately 1.5GB in size, suitable for old and modern computers that support the 32-bit (i386) and 64-bit (x86_64) instruction set architectures.

The boot menu is comprehensive and includes various advanced options

When booting the Live DVD from the BIOS of a computer, you’ll encounter a boot menu, which we have to admit that it’s pretty standard for an Ubuntu-based operating system.

It will allow the user to boot the live system with normal drivers or in safe graphics mode, start the installer directly, boot in text or debug modes, perform a system memory diagnostic test, as well as to boot an existing operating system from the first disk drive.

Offers a modern and elegant graphical desktop environment

As mentioned, the main emphasis of Mystras is on the graphical desktop environment. It removes the traditional, default layout of Xfce and replaces it with a modern and elegant interface built around the Compiz window manager and comprised of a taskbar located on the upper side of the screen and a dock (application launcher) on the bottom edge of the screen.

The operating system contains top-notch applications

A plethora of popular and highly acclaimed open-source applications are included in Mystras, among which we can mention the Mozilla Firefox web browser, Skype VoIP client, Pidgin multi-protocol instant messenger, and many other. It a neat operating system that can be easily installed on a local drive or used as-is directly from the bootable medium.
