New recovery OS updates

Author: | Posted in distro No comments

Yesterday, August 3rd, two Linux recovery operating systems received minor updates: my favorite, RIPLinuX (10.7) and another OS which I wrote about a while ago, Parted Magic (5.2).

The changelog files show these new releases include bug fixes, minor enhancements and updated versions for the main packages (e.g. partitioning tools).

Changelog for RIP LinuX:

I’ve always been amazed by these lightweight Linux distributions (~100MB) which you can use for almost anything. Not only do they provide tools to help you troubleshoot your system, but they can also be used as regular OS’s for browsing the Internet, chatting with friends or even listening to music.

So although I generally agree with the saying, I can admit – in this case – that size doesn’t always matter.
