RhinoLINUX KDE Edition is an open source distribution of Linux based on the world's most popular free operating system, Ubuntu Linux, and built around the KDE Plasma Workspace and Applications desktop environment.

Distributed as a dual-arch Live DVD

The distribution is available for download as a single, dual-arch Live DVD ISO image of approximately 2GB in size, which means that the user must burn it onto a DVD disc or write it to a USB thumb drive of 2GB or higher capacity in order to boot it from the BIOS of a PC. It supports both 64-bit and 32-bit hardware platforms.

It provides users with a standard boot loader from where they can start the live environment with default options or in safe graphics mode, by using the VESA framebuffer, boot an existing operating system from the first drive, perform a system memory diagnostic test, as welll as to check the DVD for defects.

Custom KDE desktop environment with top-notch apps

As its name suggests, RhinoLINUX KDE Edition uses the KDE Plasma Workspaces and Applications project as its default and only desktop environment, customized with beautiful artwork and comprised of a single taskbar and a standard desktop interface (without widgets).

Default applications include the FileZilla file transfer client, Mozilla Firefox, Konqueror and Google Chrome web browsers, Drivel journal Editor, KMail email client, KVpnc VPN client, KPPP Internet dial-up tool, KTorrent torrent downloader, GIMP image editor, and digiKam photo management software.

Furthermore, the AcidRip DVD-Video ripper, DVD95 Converter, DVD Styler DVD-Video authoring software, ISO Master CD image editor and burner, Amarok audio plauer, Kaffeine media player, DeVeDe DVD-Video creator, K3b CD/DVD/BD burning utility, VLC Media Player, and LibreOffice office suite are also installed.

Bottom line

Summing up, the KDE edition of RhinoLINUX proves to be a stable and reliable operating system that uses the latest Ubuntu and KDE technologies, all in order to provide users with a modern, familiar and productive desktop oriented distribution of Linux.
