The first beta of Elementary OS Loki is now available

We have known for a long time that the guys at Elementary OS are working on the new version called Loki. A version that will bring big changes to operating system like we were able to see in the first beta which was launched a few hours ago. And although Elementary OS Loki is still in testingThe truth is that we know new improvements that will make Elementary OS Loki look a little more like Mac OS and a little less like Ubuntu, but will be just as effective for users who want to use it.One of the main innovations of Elementary OS Loki is the incorporation of an applet menu or indicator. So all applets will be collected under one applet that will open all the functions it has just by clicking on it. It is something known to many because something similar is in Budgie and the Mac OS desktop. Elementary OS Loki only collects this for its users. Another important change focuses on the installation of third-party software. By default, nothing external to the operating system or official repositories can be installed.

Elementary OS Loki will include its own software center

This way the installation via ppa or GDebi is disabled, the deb packages cannot be installed with a double click either. All of these changes can be enabled again, but in Elementary OS Loki wants to prioritize security and that is why all this has been disabled, although more advanced users will be able to return to it whenever they want. To compensate for this, Elementary OS Loki brings a new App Center, A center where users can download and install secure software, as in the Android or iOS marketplace.

It’s still in beta, but if you will you can install and test Elementary OS Loki through a virtual machine, A machine that saves you from the bugs and problems that the system still has. In any case you can download Elementary OS Loki from this link. Personally I think Elementary OS Loki will mean a lot of changes for Elementary OS users but it looks like they are all marked by Apple’s dictates, so Will we see in Elementary OS Loki a voice assistant like Siri? What do you think?
