Simplicity Linux Desktop 13.1 Released!

Simplicity Linux Desktop 13.1 is now available for download!  You can get it here.  And this is what it looks like:

You get Gimp, Skype, Firefox, Clementine, Pidgin, LIbreOffice, Thunderbird and TrueCrypt built right into the OS.  No need for downloads or searching for packages, they all just work!  Despite being built on Carolina Linux, Firefox is the latest version and works like a dream (we literally patched it this morning!).

You can burn the ISO to a CD and run it from the drive, but we personally run it from a USB key and then store files on the cloud or on the hard disk of our production machines.  Plus, it’s just a 564.2mb download, so it won’t do too much damage to your download limit if you have one, and it packs a hell of a lot of software for such a small distro.
