LiveCD comes to you with all the goodness of Hanthana and Fedora version 17 including software such as Mozilla Firefox, LibreOffice Writer, LibreOffice Calc and LibreOffice Impress and loads of more lightweight applications plus LXDE. LXDE is an open source lightweight and customizable desktop environment for Linux, which is designed to work with older hardware however it also works perfectly well with modern 3D accelerated graphics hardware.

Preparations are underway for the release of Hanthana Linux x86_64, and it will be available to download next week.
We had to delay the release of due to the issues we had with uploading the locally build ISO to our hosting service providers. We have plans to deploy a cloud build system for all Hanthana Linux products and we welcome anyone who can provide us with the necessary facilities or sponsorship.
Also we would like to make this an opportunity to thanks all the contributors and users of Hanthana Linux, specially those how reviewed Hanthana Linux 17 i386 LiveDVD.
