ConnochaetOS 14.2 Officially Released Based on Slackware 14.2 and Salix Linux

Based on the Slackware 14.2 and Salix 14.2 GNU/Linux distributions, ConnochaetOS 14.2 is powered by a de-blobbed GNU/Linux-libre 4.4.19 kernel and includes only 100% free/libre open-source software projects, such as the IceWM 1.3.12 window manager, and Iceweasel 45.3.0 web browser. If you don’t see your favorite applications in the ConnochaetOS 14.2 release, don’t panic. They are, most certainly, available in the main software repositories of the GNU/Linux-libre operating system. For example, you’ll find there the latest versions of the Icedove email and news client, as well as the LibreOffice 5.1.4 office suite.
