Salix Linux 14.2 Xfce Edition Up to RC State, Final Release Coming in Two Weeks

Prominent new features include two in-house built tools, namely GUEFI, a graphical boot manager for 64-bit UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) systems, which users can use to edit, remove, or create new UEFI boot entries, and GTKRepoSetup, a graphical user interface (GUI) for the reposetup command-line tool. GTKRepoSetup can be used for switching between software repository mirrors, without the need to open the terminal and type various annoying commands. Back to the GUEFI tool, the Salix OS developer believes that his distro is the only one to offer this feature, stating, “I don’t think there is any other distribution out there with anything similar.”
