Trisquel 6.0 LTS

Filed under
Linux

Trisquel 6.0 LTS was recently released so it’s time to give it another look. Trisquel is a popular distro for users that prefer to use only free software. You won’t find proprietary software included in Trisquel, it’s dedicated to the idea of truly free software.

What’s New in Trisquel 6.0 LTS

Here’s a sample of the new features in this release:

Linux-Libre 3.2
Xorg
Abrowser 19
GNOME 3.4
LibreOffice 3.5

Abrowser now comes with full HTML 5 video support, as well as PDF support without a plugin, and it also supports instant messaging web applications on WebRTC.

GNOME 3.4 contains a number of improvements though it goes beyond the scope of this review to list them all. You can see a full list here.

There’s also a list of LibreOffice 3.5 features and fixes.

Suffice to say that this release of Trisquel contains some good stuff that makes upgrading to it worthwhile.

Open source software holds many compelling advantages over proprietary software. Open source improves the quality of the code, keeps costs down, encourages innovation and collaboration, combined with superior security, freedom, flexibility, interoperability, business agility, and much more.
