DreamLinux 5 Review

Filed under
Linux

DreamLinux is a distribution that is based on Debian “Wheezy” and using the latest desktop version of XFCE 4.8 on a Linux 3.1 Kernel. DreamLinux has just released this latest version after a long absence and we will see if it can make up for lost time.

When you’ve created a bootable LiveDVD of DreamLinux, you are greated by a Mac OS X style desktop with which most of the software packages you have installed are there for you on the kicker bar by default, or you can, still use the menu on the top left side of the screen and access the program you want from there.

Installation of DreamLinux was not painful at all, but would have preferred if there was a bit more customizing done of the final install then later changing some of the options.
