Porteus 2.1 RC1 发布，快捷的、便于携带的Linux发行
Porteus是一份快捷的、便于携带的、模块化的自启动运行光盘及USB介质发行，它基于Slackware Linux。该发行始于一份Slax的社区改造版本（另一份基于Slackware的自启动光盘，但已不再维护），以KDE 3作为i486版本的缺省桌面，并以裁减过的KDE 4作为x86_64版本的桌面环境。此外还提供轻量级的LXDE可作为替代桌面环境。
Ira McDaniel has announced the availability of the first release candidate for Porteus 2.1, a new version of the project's Slackware-based live CD with a choice of KDE, LXDE, Razor-qt or Xfce desktops: " The Porteus Community is pleased to announce Porteus 2.1 RC1 (standard Desktop edition), as well as Porteus Kiosk edition 2.0.4. We've restructured our layout a bit and now offer standalone ISO image releases of four desktop environments (KDE 4, Razor-qt, Xfce and LXDE) for both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures. We've also put together prepackaged modules for Google Chrome, Opera, LibreOffice, AbiWord, and printing and scanning software, which can be dropped in place to get out-of-the-box functionality. Please note that the 'Development' module will now need to be downloaded as a standalone module if you wish to compile additional software in Porteus."
