SlackEX Distro Is Based on Slackware 14.2 and KDE 4.14.27, Uses Linux 4.10.2

SlackEX Build 170314 is the latest ISO snapshot of the Slackware derivative, and, as expected, it ships with the same Linux 4.10.2 kernel that you can also download and install on your Slackware or Slackware-based operating system. The previous SlackEX Live ISO image was using a kernel from the now deprecated Linux 4.7 series. Taking a closer look at its new components, we can’t help but notice that SlackEX Build 170314 is built the KDE 4.14.27 desktop environment and includes all the latest package versions from the Slackware 14.2 repositories. Among the most popular apps pre-installed in this release, there’s Mozilla Firefox 52.0 and Thunderbird 45.2.8.
