The 1st stable NimbleX has done

Finnaly, the 1st stable released of NimbleX sub100 was released. NimbleX sub100 is a Slackware-based live CD that takes less than 100 MB on the CD, but still manages to fit in the KDE desktop.

As DistroWatch said for this distro's highlights:

USB installer (slightly better than the one in 2007v2); added K3b so you can burn CDs and DVDs; added support for PDF files; more than 240 webcam models are supported; remote desktop for RDP and VNC protocols; added a modified version of Quax's kweb2mod to use software from the Internet; wizard to create the file to easily save changes; added Parted, iptables, Guarddog, wget, xfsutils, dosfstools, GRUB, gawk, less, unarj and nano.

NimbleX has a special edition that is smaller than 100MB but still retains some functionality for a broad variaty of tasks.

Image The most important stuff that you can find in this edition are:

  • Kernel 2.6.21
  • KDE 3.5.7
  • XINE media player engine
  • XMMS audio player
  • GIMP image editor
  • Kopete IM client
  • Midnight Commander
  • Webcam Support
  • Wireless Support
  • Remote Desktop
  • Spellchecking
  • USB Installer
  • PDF Reader
  • K3B burner
  • and others ...

When booted of the HDD NimbleX sub100MB is most likely the fastest distro with KDE. It can boots approximately in 40 seconds!

A new and exciting feature is that, if you have a high speed connection, you can use software form the Internet. It's only a matter of a few clicks.

The new stuff that powers this version seem to be much better than they used to be so thanks everybody that worked to make Linux cooler!
