One of the novelties that introduced Ubuntu in the world of distributions was the introduction of “Flavors” that made the distribution more prone or not to a certain group of people. This phenomenon was quickly cut short by Ubuntu as well which started denouncing those who used their logos without their permission. But there are still distributions that use Ubuntu and modify it for a specific purpose, such as Mangaka Linux.
Mangaka Linux is a distribution based on Ubuntu and that it tries to adapt for fans of manga, anime or also for those known as otakus. So the theme and environment of Mangaka Linux is clearly the manga but that does not sacrifice the power to be used on any computer, including old ones.
And it is that Mangaka Linux began offering itself to older computers, Being one of the first distributions to use Ubuntu with LXDE. But that was only during the first version of the distribution, known as Mangaka One. Then Gnome was used as the default desktop until in the latest version it came out with Pantheon.
Mangaka Linux has Pantheon as the default desktop
The development of Mangaka Linux is something inconsistent and has recently resumed with interesting improvements such as the inclusion of an LTS version or the change of desktop, in this case we have opted for Pantheon, the desktop used in Elementary OS. It also includes enough free software and free software for anime lovers to enjoy from the start, this includes VLC, LibreOffice, Firefox, etc …
The creators claim that the latest version, Mangaka Nyu is as light and powerful as the first version of Mangaka Linux and fully functional, ready to download and even with some tricks to make it work better. Although I really do not know if fans of the manga will opt for this distribution or continue with Ubuntu, the original version.
