Debian Operating Systems Upgrades Linux

Knoppix 7.2 Released 53

hypnosec writes "Knoppix 7.2 has been released for public testing — unlike its predecessor, Knoppix 7.1, which was only made available through the annual Linux Magazine CeBIT edition. Based on Debian "Wheezy", Knoppix 7.2 packs quite a few new features, including newer desktop packages from Debian/testing and Debian/unstable Jessie. The latest version uses the Linux 3.9 kernel and xorg 7.7, and comes loaded with LibreOffice 4.0, GIMP 2.8, Chromium 27 (and Firefox/Iceweasel 21), Wine 1.5, and Virtualbox version 4.2.10. It uses LXDE by default. For users who still want to go for KDE or GNOME, version 4.8.4 and 3.4.2 of the respective desktops are available from the Knoppix DVD."

    I had a Knoppix CD with me several years ago and got stranded in an airport for around 8 hours due to a cancelled flight. At this time free wi-fi was no prevalent, even in the airport lounges. However the carrier decided to let me in to their lounge and enjoy the facilities during the long wait. Inside the lounge were a bank of computers that users could buy internet time on for some exorbitant fee. However, they had no security around them and the CD drive and BIOS were freely accessible. Thank you Knoppix for a few hours of free internet.... :-)
