    The Linux Lite Control Center: This was built as one central central location for everything that you needed to configure your computer. Lite Control Center was built much like a web page, Lite Control Center has a menu on the left as categories, and within those categories buttons that launch whichever application you are wanting to use. Lite Control Center is currently considered beta and would be part of Linux Lite 2.6 Final release. Lite Control Center can be found on the taskbar next to the terminal icon.

    Systemback – During the 2.6 development cycle, the community was asked which system restore tool they favoured the most and why. Based on feedback on social media and the Forums, the community chose Systemback to be included in Linux Lite 2.6. Systemback is extremely versatile. You can easily restore the previous state of your computer, perform system copying, system installation and Live system creation. This is especially useful for those wanting to deploy their custom version of Linux Lite across multiple machines, something the community has been asking for.
