Linux Deepin 12.12 review

Filed under
Linux

Linux Deepin is based on Ubuntu Desktop, and it used to be that a Linux Deepin release came two months after the most recent Ubuntu Desktop release. So if Ubuntu is released in April, the corresponding Linux Deepin is released in June. That held true until Linux Deepin 12.06, which was actually released in July 2012.

When Ubuntu 12.10 and 13.04 were released, there were no matching Linux Deepin releases. That’s because after Linux Deepin 12.06, the Deepin developers decided to roll their own desktop environment, one that’s still based on GNOME 3 technologies. The first public release of that desktop environment is the graphical interface that graces Linux Deepin 12.12.

But don’t let the release number fool you, because Linux Deepin 12.12 is actually based on Ubuntu 13.04, not Ubuntu 12.12. Why Deepin’s developers did not make the jump from 12.06 to 13.06 is not something I want to dwell upon here, because ultimately, it is not that important. The aim of this article is to offer a detailed review of Linux Deepin 12.12.

Distro Development: Rescatux and Bodhi

  • Rescatux 0.40 beta 9 released
    Many code in the grub side and in the windows registry side has been rewritten so that these new features could be rewritten. As a consequence it will be easier to maintain Rescapp. Finally the chntpw based options which modify the Windows registry now perform a backup of the Windows registry files in the unlikely case you want to undo some of the changes that Rescapp performs. I guess that in the future there will be a feature to be able to restore such backups from Rescapp itself, but, let’s focus on releasing an stable release. It’s been a while since the last one. UEFI feedback is still welcome. Specially if the Debian installation disks work for you but not the Rescatux ones.
  • Bodhi 4.0.0 Updates and July Donation Totals
    Late last month I posted a first alpha look at Bodhi 4.0.0. Work since then has been coming along slowly due to a few unpredictable issues and my own work schedule outside of Bodhi being hectic over the summer. Bodhi 4.0.0 will be happening, but likely not with a stable release until September. I am traveling again this weekend, but am hoping to get out a full alpha release with 32bit and non-PAE discs next week.
