Linux Deepin 12.06 review

Filed under
Linux

Linux Deepin is a distribution derived from Ubuntu Desktop. The latest edition, Linux Deepin 12.06, which is based on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, was released on July 17. Though based on Ubuntu Desktop, Linux Deepin does not use the Unity desktop, but features a customized GNOME 3 interface. It is not perfect, but it is, by my assessment, better than the Unity interface.

Being based on Ubuntu Desktop, Linux Deepin uses the same installation program, so if you have installed Ubuntu or any other Ubuntu-based distribution, you will be very familiar with the installation program and installation process of this distribution.

Meanwhile, the very first Tizen (Samsung Z1) and Ubuntu (BQ Aquaris E4.5) phones have only just shipped, and Jolla’s Sailfish OS based Jolla phones are still mostly limited to Europe. Read more
