Debian-Based SparkyLinux 4.5.2 Ships Budgie Desktop 10.2.9, Linux Kernel 4.8.15

SparkyLinux 4.5.2 is the second maintenance update in the SparkyLinux 4.5 “Tyche” stable series of the operating system, which is based on the Debian Testing repositories, thus shipping with bleeding-edge packages and GNU/Linux technologies, such as the recently released Linux 4.8.15 kernel. However, the main reason behind this ISO respin of SparkyLinux is to fix a nasty bug that makes it possible, again, to install and use the Debian-based distro inside a virtual machine created with the popular, cross-platform and open-source Oracle VirtualBox virtualization software.
