Linux Mint-Based feren OS Gets Upgraded to Linux Mint 18.2, USB Boot Improved

The biggest change in this month’s feren OS snapshot is that the entire system was rebased on the recently released Linux Mint 18.2 “Sonya” operating system, which, in turn, is based on the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) distro. Additionally, the release improves USB boot support and removes a few apps. The removed apps can be installed manually from the “Recommended Apps” section of distro’s Welcome Screen, which received a major update. Support for Nvidia GPUs was improved as well, especially when running the OS directly from the live medium, thanks to the implementation of a new “No Mode Set” setting during boot.
