I haven’t told you about distributions based on Ubuntu. Distributions based on Ubuntu and they vary totally until creating an own development as it is the case of Linux Mint o Elementary OS. DaxOS is an example of walking in the same direction.
DaxOS is a Linux distribution based on Ubuntu, takes from it its packages and repositories. At first, DaxOS had as a desktop a Inlightenment 17 highly customized and configured to be easy to use for novice users. Now, in its version 2.0, DaxOS uses a new desktop, created by themselves and developed in Gambes 3, which allows them to give that touch of difference to Ubuntu.
What does DaxOS carry?
The desk is called Andromeda Desktop Environment and among other virtues it consists of a basic application launcher, easy to configure and which by default is located and organizes the applications so that the novice user has no problem. It also has full compatibility with applications as always Dropbox.
Other custom applications of DaxOS they are the text editor and music player. The first is called Medusa and is focused on being light and simple. Like the rest, it is written in gambes 3. The music player is still under development and although it is very light and fully integrated into the desktop, it only reads mp4 and flv files. Which is okay but it shows lack of maturity.
The creators of this distribution have created three flavors of her just like her mother Ubuntu, the flavors are Kids, Life and the normal version. the taste Kids endows the distribution of software and a graceful environment with children, the youngest, which will allow them to enter the computer without any problems. The other “recently“Taste is Life a complete distro in terms of multimedia refers to introducing numerous apps to the desktop such as social media, mail, etc … that give great versatility to the distribution.
The creators of this distribution have also announced their intentions for this year among which there is a new flavor focused on the Rasbperry Pi, An improvement of all its products and the development of a space with the platform owncloud where the files, tests, samples and documents of the development of this distribution will be housed.
As you can see it is a distribution with a very defined market, perfect for novice and not so novice users that significantly improves its parent distribution in terms of performance and lightness is concerned.
I would also like to comment that its origins are Spanish, it is being tested in a famous GNU / Linux forum in Spain and it seems that it is giving good results. What do you think? Have you tried this distribution? What do you think of this type of development?
