An official and freely distributed edition of Robolinux, using the LXDE desktop environment
Robolinux LXDE is an open source, freely distributed, low on resources and extremely fast computer operating system derived from the award-winning Debian GNU/Linux distribution and built around the lightweight LXDE (Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment) graphical desktop environment. The LXDE edition of Robolinux promises ultra fast boot times and requires only 66 MB of RAM to boot (on the 32-bit flavor).
Distributed as 64-bit and 32-bit Live DVDs
The LXDE edition of Robolinux is available for download as two Live DVD ISO images, one for each of the supported hardware platforms, 64-bit (x86_64) and 32-bit (i386). Users can write the ISO images to either USB flash drives or DVD discs, as they have approximately 1.5 GB in size each.
From the boot menu of the Live DVD ISO images, the user can start the live system with normal configuration or install the distribution on their computers, replacing or alongside an existing operating system.
LXDE loads really fast, looks traditional
As mentioned, this Robolinux flavor is built around the LXDE desktop environment, which loads really fast and looks traditional, comprised of a single taskbar (panel) located on the bottom edge of the screen, from where users can access the main menu and browser installed apps, launch frequently used programs, interact with running applications, as well as to cycle between virtual workspaces and access essential system functions or apps that reside in the system tray area.
Comes pre-loaded with a great software selection
With Robolinux LXDE, users will be able to download torrent files using Deluge, browse the Internet with Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome, chat with friends and family using Pidgin or Skype, send/receive emails or stay informed with the latest news articles using Mozilla Thunderbird, edit office documents with LibreOffice, view and organize photos with Shotwell, edit images with GIMP, listen to music using Audacious or Banshee, or view movies with VLC Media Player.
