Linux Deepin 12.06 preview

Filed under
Linux

Linux Deepin is a desktop distribution based on Ubuntu. The latest edition, Linux Deepin 12.06, which is based on Ubuntu Desktop 12.04, was released – depending on your time zone – yesterday or today.

Linux Deepin is one of the very few distributions that use the GNOME 3 desktop that I will gladly recommend to anybody, even first time users of Linux. It is probably the best Ubuntu-based distribution, and in many respects, it is even better than its parent distribution.

While a detailed review and other how-to articles on this latest release are still in the works, here are a few screen shots from a test installation for your viewing pleasure.

The tracking scripts documented by Steven Englehardt, Gunes Acar, and Arvind Narayanan represent a small slice of the invisible tracking ecosystem that follows users around the web largely without their knowledge.
