The Porteus team is busy preparing the latest version of Porteus which will be based on slackware-current allowing people to stay on the bleeding edge. We are in the process of addressing bugs and creating desktops. A big thank you to our DEV team!!

This newer version will be slightly larger than previous versions but should be more compatible with a wider range of machines. I've been using it for the last 6 months as my everyday operating system and it serves me well.

What can we expect?

A silent,quiet boot up, with exploding words "Fast and Furious"; "This is Porteus for You" in a deep Blue background and a " See You" message during shutdown;

Logs for Porteus error messages during boot and shutdown process;

A separate base module for all applications;

An animated watchman applet for Internet activity...Red for no activity and Green for activity and log for outgoing calls to firewall;

A guide with useful commands for "Terminal" say, a collection of all suggestions in this forum for trouble shooting and basic system operation from 'command prompt';

A collection of 30 Full HD wallpapers with a script to boot with a random one everyday or every boot;

Adding a "Games" listing in the application menu with few games assembled by members here;

more, if I could dream!

I have seen Xorg finishing its job by 10.52 seconds in my Laptop, and I can't be greedy on speed; Bench marking gurus, report sizable jump in performance with new release of Kernel. Is it true 'Porteus Development team?

Cheers!
