Foresight Linux – an independent Linux distribution, based on rPath Linux, targeted to desktop computers users. Foresight was created by Ken VanDine, and was developing by Foresight community since April of 2013 (the last version).

Foresight was using Conary package management system, which could updates those specific files in packages which need to be updated. Conary also has the advantage of very granular dependency resolution, and a relatively easy packaging process.
The system were using the rolling release model, what was very useful avoiding reinstalling the system every next iso images were released.

The main desktop environment of Foresight was GNOME, and the latest version of GNOME was always provided as quick as possible to the end users.
Starting from Foresight 2.5.0, developers offered the system with KDE and Xfce desktops as well.

The latest, available iso images of Foresight 2.5.3 can be downloaded with GNOME, LXDE or Xfce desktops of your choice.
