Slackware-Based Porteus 3.2.2 Portable Distro Released with Linux Kernel 4.9

Until today, the Porteus 3.2 series was in development, with no less than five RC (Release Candidate) builds published. It comes a little over a year since the release of the Porteus 3.1 stable branch and promises great GNU/Linux technologies, including the recently released Linux 4.9 kernel. Porteus 3.2.2 is also the first stable version of the 3.2 series, and it’s distributed in four distinct flavors, with the KDE Plasma 5, Xfce, Cinnamon, and MATE desktop environments. Under the hood, it features the PulseAudio sound system, eudev device file manager, and ConsoleKit2 framework for defining/tracking users and login sessions.
