We the ZevenOS Team are proud to announce the release of ZevenOS-Neptune 1.9.

ZevenOS-Neptune is a ZevenOS Distro based fully upon Debian Squeeze, except for a newer kernel and some drivers.
In this Version we aimed for creating a fast running Live System for USB Sticks. Therefore we developed an easy to use USB Installer aswell as a Persistent Creator that allows you to store changes to your system on your usb stick.
The Debian software repositories are updating the included software regulary so that you will have a long supported distro.

This Version carries on the codename and philosophy of “NextGeneration” by providing a modern KDE 4 based Desktop with tons of Multimedia Software aswell as a brand new polished design. As this version was also designed for computer science students it also includes the Development Platform Eclipse and some network diagnostic tools(Wireshark,Kismet,Aircrack-NG). For low-end computers with less amounts of ram it also includes a low memory mode Desktop which is based upon fluxbox. This one only consumes about 90 MB of ram.
