Ubuntu-Based ExTiX “The Ultimate Linux System” Now Includes Calamares Installer

ExTiX 18.0 Deepin 171208 is the latest build of the distro, and it includes the recently released Deepin 15.5 Desktop, the Calamares 3.1.9 universal installer framework, which replaces the old Refracta Installer, as well as Refracta Tools, which lets users create their own live ISO images based on ExTiX or Ubuntu. According to Arne Exton, ExTiX 18.0 Deepin 171208 still ships with the Refracta Installer. Though it isn’t the default installer anymore, Refracta Installer is still needed when you want to install ExTiX on a VirtualBox or VMware virtual machine, as well as on older, non-UEFI computer.
