All the versions come with Fluxbox graphical environment and with the same category of applications, except for some exceptions, for example:
– Editors: Kompozer, Leafpad, Nano, Gvim, Abiword, Gaiksaurus
– Files: PCManFM, Rox-filer, MidnightCommander
– Graphics: Gimp, Imagemagick, Geeqie
– Internet: Firefox 3.6.3 (Ubuntu/Slackware), Iceweasel 3.5.9 (Debian), Flash 10+, Irssi, Xchat, Gftp, Links, Lynx, Irssi, Wifi-Radar, wireless-tools, WICD or Network-Manager, aircrack-ng, wireshark
– Multimedia: Audacious, Alsamixergui, Alsaplayer, Gxine, Clementine(Slack), isomaster, xcd-roast
– Terminals: rxvt-unicode, xterm, terminator, and Terminal (xfce4-terminal)

Slackware comes with some interesting addons, anyone who wishes can have KDE 3.5 installed.
As the name suggests, nFlux will always be “in flux”; as the distro evolves every attempt will be made to add or remove applications, scripts, etc in a effort to make each of the three varieties as similar to each other in form and function, without losing their identities.

Media: Live DVD
The last version | Released: 2014-06-27 | July 27, 2009

ESCLinux – a Linux live-CD, made for carrying interpreters, compilers and libraries for a few IF authoring systems. It boots from the cdrom drive or from an usb key, and doesn’t need any other operative system on the hard drive (e.g. Microsoft Windows) to work. It focuses mostly on Inform, but TADS and Hugo tools are included too.

The first version of ESCLinux was released in 2005 (?) and was based on Knoppix, with KDE desktop as default.
After that, up to version 2009, ESCLinux was based on Arch Linux and was using GNOME desktop environment.
The latest version of ESCLinux 2014 is based on Linux Mint 13 “Maya”, which is based on Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS (Precise Pangolin), and features Xfce desktop as default.

As the developer said (translation from French):

I wanted the system to fit on a mini-CD, but it was expense of available features: this cd was a little too complicated to use optimally for those who do not know linux.

I have restarted this project by releasing it on a complete cd, with a much more modern desktop: KDE. The fact that this cdrom is based on the linux-live script makes it much easier to work with. Unfortunately, it is still not easy to install the live-cd on a hard drive, even if it is possible, this is not for the beginner. On the other hand, it is planned all that it is necessary to connect by the network on this machine (ideal if one has several computers available).

The maintainer of ESCLinux is Eric Forgeot.

GoBang Linux – a light and fast operating system based on Ubuntu repositories.

The default environment is built on the Openbox window manager. G.B.L allows you to easily and quickly customize your system to suit your needs. ISO images are not issued regularly and contain alternate installation CDs.

The idea to create GoBang OS was born out of the need for rapid, lightweight operating system that aims to provide an alternative look at the OS.
The system allows a large amount of software installations, and complete control over the appearance. The GoBang Project aims nature of information and education.

The idea for GoBang came about in November 2012. At the beginning system ISO was published only in one language (Polish) and pointing to a small group of students, studying at the “Administration of the Operating Systems “. As the education program do not provide deeper discussions about the alternative system solutions from the family of operating systems Linux and Unix and most of the issues are based on the Microsoft products, I (developer) decided to take care of this problem and start promoting solutions based on codes such as open end free source.
