Liquid Lemur – a Linux distribution based on Linux Mint and features WindowMaker window manager as the default desktop.
It’s “A 64bit Debian based distro, helping to keep Window Maker alive and useful a little bit longer.”
On the beginning, Lemur was based on Debian testing, and was containing some tools from Dreamlinux and Linux Mint Debian Edition, non-free drivers and multimedia codecs.
In December 2011, the system has been moved to Arch Linux as its base, due to problems with the stability.
In July 2012, the system has been moved back to Debian testing. As an addition, the project founder “palemoon” begun a new hybrid system called „DreamStep” and changed the project page (and name) of Liquid Lemur and Dreamstep to „Moonsoft”.
After a while of project non-activity, in 2014 it was re-activated, and Liquid Lemur has been moved to Linux Mint as its base.
On the end of 2015, palemoon closed the project.
In October 2017 the developer released a new, updated iso image based on Debian 8 Jessie, and said that: “Liquid Lemur 3.0 is currently being developed … A new installer is coming, along with updated Lemur apps and a Debian 9 base.”
