Downloadable as 64-bit/32-bit Live DVDs for Spanish-speaking users
The distro can be downloaded through Softpedia or from its official website as two Live DVD ISO images, which have been engineered to support the 64-bit (x86_64) and 32-bit (i386) instruction set architectures.
The boot menu is quite minimal, allowing the user to only start the live environment with defualt boot options and drivers, in verbose mode or in single user mode. Keep in mind that the default language for the boot prompt is Spanish.
A great desktop environment that is both traditional and modern
The default and only desktop environment of the juntaDados operating system is Cinnamon, which is forked from the modern GNOME graphical desktop, but without the GNOME Shell interface. It uses a single-panel layout and a powerful and advanced main menu that helps users to quickly find applications and system settings.
Includes a great collection of open source applications
Default applications include the Transmission torrent downloader, Mozilla Firefox web browser, gFTP file transfer client, Mozilla Thunderbird email and news client, LibreOffice office suite, Audacious audio player, Pidgin multi-protocol instant messenger, as well as the GIMP image editor.
Among some exotic applications that were included in this operating system, we can mention Wireshark network scanner, Comix comic book viewer, Blender 3D modeller, Shotwell image viewer and organizer, Calibre ebook library management software, Inkscape vector graphics editor, Scribus document publishing tool, Ardour digital audio workstation, and Audacity audio editor.
Summing up, juntaDados is a decent distribution of Linux that includes a wide range of open source applications, most of them oriented towards audio and video production, on top of the latest upstream Debian GNU/Linux release.
