Good day everyone!
I'd like to announce that Point Linux 13.02, the new Debian + MATE distro is out!
Point Linux is based on Debian 'Wheezy' 7.0 and MATE 1.4.2. It aims to reproduce the Gnome 2 look and feel and it's usability. There are two editions of Point Linux, the full edition comes with Firefox 17.0.1, Thunderbird 17.0.2, LibreOffice, VLC, Transmission, Pidgin, Brasero and non-free firmware. The core version doesn't include these apps and firmware but it fits on a CD, yet you can always upgrade the core edition to full installing 'pointlinux-mate-desktop' metapackage.
You can easily add the non-free Google Chrome, Opera, Dropbox and Virtualbox repos installing the 'pointlinux-repos-nonfree' package and updating package lists.
This version of Point Linux has a text-based 'Debian way' installer. It's preseeded so the overall installation is simplified. If needed, the installer localizes your system during the installation downloading the necessary language packages.
