A Lite edition of the RhinoLINUX operating system with the Xfce desktop environment

editor's review






RhinoLINUX Lite XFCE Edition is a freely distributed and open source project that provides users with a lightweight, modern and very fast operating system based on the Xfce desktop environment and using the latest Ubuntu Linux technologies.

Available as a dual-arch Live DVD

Just like all the other RhinoLINUX editions, the Xfce flavor is available for download as a dual-arch Live DVD ISO image, designed to support both 64-bit and 32-bit architectures. It has approximately 1.5GB in size and must be burned onto a DVD disc or written on a USB thumb drive of 2GB or higher capacity in order to boot it from the BIOS of a PC.

The Live DVD features the same standard boot menu that can be found on other editions of RhinoLINUX, allowing the user to start the live environment with default settings or in safe graphics mode, boot an existing operating system from the first drive, run a system memory test, as well as to check the integrity of the bootable medium (only if using a DVD media).

Clean, pure and traditional desktop environment with powerful apps

As mentioned, RhinoLINUX Lite XFCE Edition uses the lightweight Xfce project as its default and only desktop environment, providing users with a clean, pure and traditional graphical session comprised of a single taskbar located on the bottom edge of the screen from where the user can launch apps and interact with opened programs.

Default applications include the Oracle VirtualBox virtualization software, Mozilla Firefox web browser, USB Stick Formatter, USB Image Writer, Thunar file manager, MultiSystem Live USB multiboot creator, LibreOffice office suite, GIMP image editor, Synaptic Package Manager, BleachBit system cleaner, Banshee music player, VLC Media Player, Mozilla Thunderbird email and news client, Skype VoIP client and Transmission torrent downloader.

Bottom line

Summing up, the Xfce edition of RhinoLINUX lives up to its name, providing users with a lite and very fast operating system that includes a plethora of powerful applications, everything you will ever need for your Linux PC!
