STUX 2.0 Exhibits Major Improvements

"The STUX download comes in a CD image and a DVD image. I chose the latter, which weighs in at 4.1GB -- clearly STUX has a lot of software to choose from. When burned to disc, the image is a live DVD with the option to install. One of the first things you see upon booting STUX is some beautiful background artwork. The artwork cycles and provides you with interesting new backgrounds every few minutes.

"The install was a straightforward step-by-step process that anyone with a basic understanding of computers could follow. The most noteworthy part of the install is actually something it lacks: a place to set the root password. I assumed this meant that a default root password would still be in place on my installed system. While this wasn't good, it probably wouldn't hurt anything in the time it would take me to change it."
