UbuntuKylin, and Xubuntu.
Pre-releases of Saucy Salamander are *not* encouraged for anyone needing a stable system or anyone who is not comfortable running into occasional, even frequent breakage. They are, however, recommended for Ubuntu developers and those who want to help in testing, reporting and fixing bugs as we work towards getting this release ready. Alpha 2 includes a number of software updates that are ready for wider
testing. This is quite an early set of images, so you should expect some bugs.
