Ubuntu-Based Exton|OS Distro Now Ships with MATE 1.16 Desktop and Linux Kernel 4.9

Exton|OS Build 161231 launched on December 31, 2016, based on the stable Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) operating system and MATE 1.16 desktop environment. However, the most exciting thing about the new release is the implementation of a custom and fully patched Linux kernel 4.9.0-11-exton build. Linux kernel 4.9 brings lots of improvements for AMD Radeon GPU users and many other goodies that you can discover in our in-depth report. Apart from that, Arne Exton managed to include Refracta tools, which let users create their own live Linux OS based on Canonical’s Ubuntu 16.10.
