snapshot release - 20220701 ISO

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? I want the speed and customization of Vivaldi, but I want old and slow, Mr dependable to hang around.

I let Vivaldi block trackers internally but use ublock origin as an ad blocker. TIP: To Drag-N-Drop a link from Vivaldi into AROX, you left-click, hold and start drag VERTICALLY-ONLY, then you can drop link into arox window. (I thought someone online was joking when I first read about it :-)

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.
