linux Lite creator Jerry Bezencon informs Softpedia today, October 5, 2016, about the release and immediate availability of the Beta of his upcoming Linux Lite 3.2 Ubuntu-based operating system.

Based on Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS (Xenial Xerus), Linux Lite 3.2 promises to be a great release, coming November 1, 2016, not only designed for those who want to migrate from a Microsoft windows operating system, but also for power users who like to boot multiple GNU/Linux distributions on the same machine.

"Linux Lite 3.2 Beta is now available for testing. There have been a number of changes since the 3.0 release. Linux Lite should now multi boot with other distros, whilst remaining easily distinguishable to Windows folks in a dual boot environment. I look forward to your feedback regarding these changes," says Jerry Bezencon in today's announcement .
