SolusOS 1 Eveline review - Very interesting

Filed under
Linux

SolusOS is a distribution with a clear mission - bringing back GNOME [sic]. This does not refer to your home garden midgets, mythical creatures or Gnome 3, but in fact the good old Gnome 2 desktop environment, the best one. SolusOS is based on Debian, sans the politics thingie, so there's something for everyone.

I took the 32-bit edition, the one currently available for testing, although you may find that the 64-bit version has been released since, on my SSD-powered T61 box already hosting four systems, one having to go to accommodate the new player. So please, let's see what a pure Gnome distro can do. Version 1, called Eveline, here we goes. Not a grammar error, I assure you.
