Simplicity Linux 14.4 Beta 发布
Simplicity Linux是Puppy Linux的衍生物，它采用LXDE作为缺省桌面环境。它以四种样式提供：Obsidian版、Netbook版、Desktop版、Media版。Netbook版的特色在于云计算软件，Desktop版提供一套通用软件，Media版则为使用PC机的家宅一族提供对媒体的简便访问。
David Purse has announced the availability of the beta release of Simplicity Linux 14.4, a small, fast, and versatile Linux distribution based on Puppy Linux: " Simplicity Linux 14.4 is based on 'Slacko' 184.108.40.206 by 01micko from the Puppy Linux community. Simplicity Linux 14.4 uses LXDE as the Window Manager for Netbook and Desktop Editions, and uses KDE 4.10 as the Window Manager for Simplicity X 14.4. As usual, Netbook is a heavily cut down Linux distro which gives access to a browser, e-mail, and a few local based applications. Netbook is designed for those who want to browse, check their e-mails, and perhaps look at a few photos or watch downloaded movies on their machines, but little else. Desktop is designed for a fuller experience, and as such includes Dropbox, LibreOffice, Skype, and more local applications. X is our experimental release. It is designed to see what else we can do with Linux, with the intention being that features we like will filter down into the stable releases. X should generally work, but should be considered highly experimental, and highly unstable; it is not really designed for day to day use." Check the release announcement.
