What's new in SolydK Back Office 201411:

  • The Home Editions were upgraded to the latest Upgrade Pack and the Business Editions were upgraded with the latest security updates. This time I will not list the version changes of the major applications, but limit myself to the most important changes.
  • The Live Installer now supports multiple drives which will give you the ability to install the home directory to a separate drive rather then another partition.

SolydK Back Office - The default KDE desktop environment of the SolydK Back Office operating system
SolydK Back Office is a special and open source edition of the SolydK operating system that includes several office-oriented applications. It is actually based on the SolydK Business Edition and features the modern KDE SC desktop environment.

Among the included office apps, we can mention the SeedDMS document management system, OrangeHRM human resource management solution, SiWapp online invoicing software, TYPO3 CMS, Zurmo CRM, ProjectLibre drop-in Microsoft Project replacement, Dia diagram creator, and LibreOffice office suite.

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.

Bottom line

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.
