DXT2 1.2

IN BRIEF

Based on Debian Buster, the distro has been in the works for quite a while, but has only had a couple of public releases. Essentially a one-man show, the distro has been designed for underpowered hardware and uses a stripped-down Xfce 4 desktop.

MIN SPEC

CPU: x86_64

MEM: 512MB

HDD: 1.8GB

BUILD: 64-bit only

The Windows 7 EOL was too good a hook to miss out on and now there are several new distros that promise to offer a suitable replacement for the popular but-defunct proprietary OS. The awkwardly-named DXT2 is another addition to this growing list and came about because its developer wasn’t satisfied by any of the existing desktop distros. The main pull of the Debian 10-based distro is its rendition of the Xfce v4.12 desktop environment that’s been heavily customised to give users a lighter and user-friendly experience.
