openSUSE 13.2 and MakuluLinux

openSUSE 13.2 (64-bit)

The new openSUSE release has been stabilized through intense testing with an automated testing tool that "helps ensure the latest openSUSE releases are not full of any nasty surprises for end users." Btrfs is the default filesystem for the root partition, whereas XFS hosts the home partition. The YaST configuration tool has been ported to Ruby and is now more responsive and reliable. Standard features include AppArmor 2.9 enabled by default, GCC 4.8, Linux kernel 3.14, and your choice of Gnome or KDE desktops.

MakuluLinux Cinnamon 2.0 Debian Edition (32-bit)

The MakuluLinux Cinnamon 2.0 Debian Edition (MCDE) is a stunning distribution with rich graphical desktops. Each desktop features a large calendar, clock, and quotation, along with many favorite Linux applications and plenty of pre-installed drivers for an easy out-of-the-box experience. MCDE is based on the Debian Testing rolling release and the PAE i686 kernel. Steam is pre-loaded for instant gaming.
