AriOS 4.0 – Persian Perfection!

Filed under
Linux

When a woGue reader sent an email to us suggesting that we should try AriOS I wasn’t very optimistic. The description was showing the same trodden approach that we saw in so many other projects that is “an Ubuntu based distribution that offers a more ready to use Ubuntu”

AriOS is really not just simply one of those distributions… It is a truly carefully tailored operating system that offers exactly everything you need, combined with elegance and a sense of opulence!

Looks

First of all, AriOS looks fantastic. This Orta Gnome Shell theme with the Faience-Azur icon theme, the elegant conky that shows useful information on the left, the Adwaita X-light window theme and the white cursor give a great first impression to the user. Details? Maybe, but these details show both the pursuit of user-pleasure that the developers have, and their taste for elegance which is very good indeed.
