Pinguy OS 10.10 (64 bit)

Filed under
Linux

PinguyOS is one I hadn’t heard of until recently. It seems to be just a baby, in Linux distro terms, although I say that not due to size or its features, but because of its age. PinguyOS only came onto the scene sometime in 2010. The distribution is an offshoot of Ubuntu, and therefore follows its six-month release cycle and simple naming. PinguyOS 10.10 64bit. My new distro for the week.

PinguyOS comes as a LiveDVD. As expected of a Live DVD, it comes packed with features! In fact, this has to be the most feature-packed distros I have seen to date.

Those who startle easy may have to change some of the audio settings, as the system sounds are loud and long. They’re pretty, compared to some, but might be too much for some users. The default settings probably won’t suit every user’s taste, and after you’ve used this distro you might think that the music is not the only slightly-too-much component.

Pro tip: Find tons of open-source Android software with F-Droid

If you're looking for truly open-source software for the Android platform, you don't have to do a ton of searching or check through licenses from within the Google Play Store.

You won't, however, find F-Droid in the Google Play Store. Instead, you have to download the .apk file and install it manually. Once it's installed, the rest is just a matter of searching for an app and tapping to install. Read more
