DebEX Gnome, Build 190228, with Calamares Installer, Refracta snapshot and kernel 5.0.0-rc7-exton

NEWS 190228 about DebEX Gnome a Refracta efi Build
I have made a new extra version of DebEX, which I call DebEX Gnome Live DVD. It’s a pure Debian system using the testing (buster) and unstable (sid) repositories. Gnome 3.30 (latest) is used as Desktop environment. I have removed the Mate Desktop, since Gnome now can be used on all kind of computers. Also when running DebEX in VirtualBox and VMware. No need for Nvidia’s proprietary graphics drivers when running this new version of DebEX. You can of course install such drivers if you want to.Furthermore I have replaced Google Chrome with Iceweasel. It is now possible to watch Netflix movies using Iceweasel (Firefox) in Linux. I have also replaced Refracta Installer with Calamares Installer, which makes it possible to install DebEX Gnome in any language. You can even use Calamares in VirtualBox and VMware – i.e. non-efi computers. All installed packages have been updated to the latest version as of 190228. DebEX Gnome uses kernel 5.0.0-rc7-exton corresponding Kernel.org’s second latest kernel 5.0-rc7.

KERNEL
DebEX Gnome Build 190228 uses kernel 5.0.0-rc7-exton, corresponding Kernel.org‘s second latest kernel 5.0-rc7.

What’s new in kernel 5.0?

The real McCoy
DebEX Gnome is a pure Debian system. I.e. no traces of Ubuntu, Kubuntu etc. New releases of Ubuntu are always based on Debian unstable. So is DebEX.
