"Built on Debian 5.0 "Lenny", the 3.5 release has filled some
details in for the redesigned DreamLinux distro focusing on
portability with enhancements to wireless drivers, laptop, netbook,
and pendrive installs. The XFCE desktop environment is included
paired with Gnome available in the form of a module. The shiny new
distro features the 184.108.40.206 Linux kernel, new icons and a new GTK+
theme. I was curious to see how DreamLinux Desktop 3.5 Edition
behaved after its complete re-design.
"I downloaded the 695MB .ISO file which took me a little longer
than I would have liked, buying on CD for $1.95 is recommended. I
burned my .ISO to a CD and ran the distro as a live CD. Right away
I noticed many different methods of installation for the DreamLinux
distro. OEM install allows the installation onto an entire drive
for users just running DreamLinux. Another option was the DL
Install icon which installs onto a created partition. The
Easy-Install icon on the desktop allowed for the quick addition of
many applications that are not included out-of-the-box due to legal
reasons. Some of the applications include Azureus, Opera, Picasa,
Skype, Google-Earth, Wine, Google Desktop, SongBird, Google
Gadgets, XMMS, Deluge, Xara LX, Kompozer, Adobe Acrobat, Midori,
Mplayer, W32Codecs, and Firefox. This is also how you can install
DVD Support by adding the Libdvdcss library."
