Linux Mini Distro with Four Desktops

Here is something interesting for the Linux distro testing community: a distribution with four desktops (KDE, Xfce, Enlightenment and Looking Glass 3D) and complete multimedia support - all on an installable live DVD.

Built on the love, suggestions and valuable feedback of our users, this release a more stable, bug-free, feature-rich and improved one. This is a One Stop Distribution, meaning, there are almost all the softwares/applications that one would ever need. There is something for everyone.

Switching between the various environments in Granular is very easy. At the login screen, before entering your username and password, just select the desired session (KDE, XFCE, Enlightenment, or Looking Glass) by clicking on the Session button near the bottom-left of the screen. Then fill in the login information to log into the selected desktop environment.
