The DVD in April's issue is the exclusive Linux Magazine Edition of Knoppix 7.7, released in conjunction with the CeBIT 2016 Global Event for Digital Business in Hanover, Germany.
Knoppix 7.7 comes with hardware support from kernel 4.4, as well as many updates and new features. The installer auto-detects the system architecture and installs either a 32- or 64-bit kernel. You have the choice of the LXDE, KDE, or Gnome 3 desktop.
This new release also incorporates a "budget fair queueing" (BFQ) storage I/O scheduler kernel patch, Xorg 7.7 with core server 1.17.3, the Areca Backup tool, 3D design and printing tools, a number of new packages, and updates to standard software.
