Availability, boot options, supported architectures
The distribution is freely available for download as two Live DVD ISO images, one for each of the supported architectures (64-bit and 32-bit). They can be deployed to USB thumb drives or written on blank DVD discs.
From the hidden boot prompt, which can be accessed by pressing any key on your keyboard during the ten second timeout, will allow you to start the live system with default options, in verbose mode (without boot splash), and in compatibility mode (better hardware detection).
Additionally, you can start an existing operating system that is installed on the first disk drive of your computer, run e memory diagnostic test, check the boot medium for errors (only if using a DVD media), as well as to reboot or shutdown the computer.
Same graphical session as SolydK and SolydK Bussiness Edition
As mentioned, the distribution features the KDE SC desktop environment, which provides users with the same great, modern and familiar graphical session that can be found on the SolydK Business Edition and SolydK operating system.
Besides the aforementioned office-oriented apps, it also includes the Mozilla Firefox ESR web browser, phpMyAdmin and Webmin administration front-ends, Mozilla Thunderbird email and news client, digiKam image viewer and organizer, VLC Media Player, K3b CD/DVD/BD burning software, and a Microsoft Word document viewer.
Being based on the business edition of SolydK, this office flavor comes with the same three year Long Term Support (LTS) specifications. It can be used by non-profit organizations, as well as at home or in small office/businesses.
