EXTON OpSuS KDE 64bit Linux Live USB
EXTON OpSuS 13.1 KDE is based on openSUSE 13.1, released 20131119. EXTON OpSuS KDE uses kernel 3.11.6 and KDE 4.11.3. Installed programs: Among many other programs, Firefox, Thunderbird, FileZilla, Gimp, Vlc, NetworkManager, GParted and LibreOffice. Study the full list of PACKAGES. You'll run the system as root or as the ordinary user live. Root's and live's password is root/live. EXTON OpSuS can easily be installed to hard drive (of those who so desire).

Installing to a USB stick and/or to hard drive
After installing EXTON OpSuS 13.1 to a USB stick, you can change the system completely and then install the system to a hard drive. You can also continue to have it only on the USB stick and run EXTON OpSuS on any computer you want. If you install EXTON OpSuS on a large enough (and fast) USB stick, you can go ahead and install for example Cinnamon, Mate or Xfce4. All your system changes are automatically saved to the USB stick.
Install EXTON OpSuS 13.1 on a USB stick
1. You shall/must install EXTON OpSuS 13.1 on a USB stick.
When downloading EXTON OpSuS KDE4, it comes in the form of a zip file (EXTON-OpSuS-13.1-64bit-KDE-1030mb-131124.zip) of 1030 MB. After unpacking with (for example) 7-Zip, you will have a file named EXTON-OpSuS-13.1-64bit-KDE-131124.img. It is of 2950 MB. This is the file you want to install to a USB stick of at least 4 GB.
2. Format a USB stick with FAT32 file system in Windows. (Right click and select format).
3. Download the program Win32 Disk Imager in your Windows system and start it. It will then look like this.
4. Find your img file and make sure that you select the correct "Device" to install to.
5. Then just restart the computer with the usb stick in place and have fun!
If you follow the above five points all your changes to the system are automatically saved on the stick. Ie your changes to the system are retained even after reboot. It's also pretty good if you then decide to install the system to hard drive. One reason for such an installation may be that you want to run the system faster. NOTE: You must use the latest version of Win32 Disk Imager.
Alternative USB installation in Linux
You can (of course) install EXTON OpSuS 13.1 to USB stick also in Linux. For example in OpenSUSE 13.1. In openSUSE, you shall use the program Suse Studio Imagewriter. In openSUSE, you must change the file extension .img (of the IMAGE file) to .raw.
Log in to KDE
Log in to the Desktop as the ordinary user live or as root (superuser). Passwords: live/root. When logged in as live you can use Sudo to become root. (Command sudo su). That can be useful sometimes. NOTE: You will be automatically logged in to KDE as user live. Just log out from KDE and back if you want to run EXTON OpSuS as root. It can look like this.
You can use Samba to connect to your Windows computers in your Network. Just open up Konqueror Web Browser and go to (for example) smb://192.168.168. It can look like this.
