Re: snapshot release - 20220701 ISO

You can, but you have to install all the /xfce packages from Slacware64-current,
and tweak startup.

Honestly, however,
if you want xfce you shouldn't bother with Absolute.
Slackware with xfce if perfectly fine and fairly lightweight.

Absolute64-20220701 released Monday, 07/04/2022 Vivaldi is the default browser, but Firefox still installed. Kind-of UN-UNIXy... but what can I do?
