This article[edit]

This article looks like a promotional article about a non-notable Linux distro. It desperately needs reliable third party refs to should notability and avoid being deleted as spam. - Ahunt (talk) 18:34, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

I found one article on Softpedia and added that as a ref and detagged it, but it still needs more third party refs added. - Ahunt (talk) 14:57, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
I found one as well:
http://www.thecodingstudio.com/opensource/linux/screenshots/index.php?linux_distribution_sm=Porteus%20v09
"Porteus is a Slackware-based distribution and live CD featuring the KDE desktop. It was created by the Slax user community as a logical continuation of the now discontinued Slackware-based live CD."
The added "read more at Distrowatch" seems not to be true, since I only find on Distrowatch the link to porteus.org, but no additional info. Maybe I just't don't get how distrowatch works, though....
But where to put it in? Same like you did with your above third party reference? Rava77 (talk) 09:25, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
That is a good find, it doesn't say much, but I'll add it in. If DistroWatch does start a page on it then we can use that as well, but for now they just have it "on-hold". - Ahunt (talk) 13:35, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

Jargon[edit]

Re "... for x86 (32-bit) based systems as well as for x86_64 (64-bit) ...": Would that be understandable for the average reader? --Mortense (talk) 20:55, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
