ExTiX is a Linux distribution based on both Debian and Ubuntu operating system. It removes the Unity desktop environment and replaces it with the GNOME 3 and GNOME Classic desktop environments. The latest release v14.1 64bit which was released 2014-04-17 is based on Debian (Jessie0 and Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr).

According to the developer (Exton), this current release is:

  • Now stable and all packages have been upgraded to latest version. See list of packages
  • The ExTiX ISO is now a ISO-hybrid, which means that it can very easily be transferred (copied) to a USB pen drive. You can then even run ExTiX from the USB stick and save all your system changes on the stick
  • ExTiX 14.1 can run from RAM. When you boot to ExTix scree, select option (ExTiX – Copy to RAM). When the system has booted up you can remove the disc (DVD) or USB stick. You’ll need at least 2 GB RAM to run ExTiX that way
  • ExTix now supports installation of Nvidia’s proprietary drivers. Read instruction on how to install Nvidia driver in ExTix
  • The Kernel version 3.13.0-17-exton now replaced with Kernel 3.13.0-24-exton
