Point Linux 3.2 MATE & Xfce Editions Land Based on Debian GNU/Linux 8.5 “Jessie”

Shipped with separate MATE and Xfce editions, Point Linux 3.2 is based on the recently released Debian GNU/Linux 8.5 “Jessie” operating system, thus borrowing many of its technologies, including the Linux 3.16 LTS (Long Term Support) kernel, as well as the LightDM 1.10.3 login manager. Point Linux aims to be a very stable GNU/Linux distribution based only on thoroughly tested open-source software components from the upstream Debian Stable repositories. Therefore, Point Linux 3.2 ships today with the MATE 1.8.1 and Xfce 4.10 desktop environments.
