Gentoo-based Toorox Releases 01.2012 GNOME Edition

by Ostatic Staff - Jan. 26, 2012

Toorox 01.2012 GNOME was released on January 20. Toorox is a Gentoo-based binary distribution that installs additional software and updates from source. It ships with an easy and fast installer that results in a complete out-of-the-box system.

According to the changelog, Toorox 01.2012 ships with Linux 3.1.6-gentoo, GNOME 3.2.1, GCC 4.5.3, Xorg-Server 1.11.3, and Firefox 9.0.1. Some other applications include GIMP, Envince, Deluge, Liferea, Empathy, LibreOffice 3.4.3, Cinelerra, and Audacity. Also included are lots of tools and utilities, nice list of games, and two graphical package managers.

The 1.5 gigabyte installable live DVDs are available in 32-bit and 64-bit architectures. Toorox is typically available in KDE and Xfce flavors as well, but releases are staggered and new versions of those will come later.

The Toorox 01.2012 GNOME desktop adds some nice extensions so that some of the elements folks take for granted are present. But I have to say I think it's about time for a new wallpaper.

There are several other screenshots at the Toorox Website.
