Point Linux 3.2 Released, Debian-based Linux operating system that uses the MATE desktop environment

Point Linux is an easy-to-set-up-and-use Linux distribution, designed especially for users who are looking for a stable, fast and predictable workstation. It is targeted at experienced users, as well as at the business/IT sector.

Distributed in multiple editions
It is distributed as two editions, Full and Core. While the first one provides users with a complete collection of open source applications and utilities, as well as a full-featured desktop environment, the latter doesn’t include all the apps that are available in the first edition.

It is very important to mention here that while the Full Edition is bundled with proprietary hardware drivers and multimedia codecs, the Core Edition includes only free multimedia codecs and drivers.

See Point Linux 3.2 release note
