4MLinux is a simple Linux distribution for desktops and servers; it uses the lightweight JWM window manager together with the LTS Linux kernel 4.9 and somewhat conservative applications and tools, including the increasingly rare-to-see LILO bootloader. After prolonged testing, the distribution's 23 branch has now been declared "stable": "The status of the 4MLinux 23.0 series has been changed to STABLE. Create your own images with GIMP 2.8.22, edit your documents with LibreOffice 5.4.3 and GNOME Office (AbiWord 3.0.2 with Gnumeric 1.12.35), share your files using DropBox 37.4.29, surf the Internet with Firefox 56.0 and Chromium 61.0.3163.100, stay in touch with your friends via Skype 184.108.40.206 and Thunderbird 52.4.0, enjoy your music collection with Audacious 3.9, watch your favorite videos with MPlayer SVN-r37931 and VLC 2.2.6. 4MLinux 23.0 comes with much improved support for FAAC, GIF, JPEG 2000, Monkey's Audio and Musepack file formats. GNOME Office has been added as a downloadable extension. Full support for SCSI, RAID and LVM devices is now available out of the box. And finally, the biggest change is related to the installation script, which now makes it possible to install 4MLinux on ext2, ext3, ext4, ReiserFS, JFS, XFS, Btrfs and NILFS2 partitions." Here is the brief release announcement. Download (MD5): 4MLinux-23.0.iso (638MB, pkglist). Also available from OSDisc.
