Any Linux users out there?

Post by efbe on May 25th 2016, 2:36 am

Just curious to know how many members here use Linux as their main OS.? Linux users are growing at an incredible rate world wide, especially after the Windows 10 fiasco.
At the moment I’m using a Linux distro called ChaletOS based of Xubuntu (xfce) which is a lightweight distribution.

Here's a screen shot of my desktop. Smile

My Mac Runs MacOSX and I also run Ubuntu on it, Is ChaletOS different from Ubuntu?

It is different, but it's based of Ubuntu and it uses the xfce environment, not as heavy, user friendly and is designed to make it easy for Windows users to migrate over to Linux.
There are other Linux Distros that make the transition to Linux easy with a Windows feel. ZorinOS is very good and Linux Mint is the most popular.
One good thing about Linux is that it's free to download and share legally without a big brother like Microsoft watching your every move. Smile

It does look like Windows doesn’t it? Smile
That's what's good about Linux, you can make it it look like anything you want, in my case i use ChaletOS which is similar in looks to Windows, but it's so easy to tweak it to make it look like any version of Windows or Mac. I can even use XP or Windows 7 icons, It really is a great operating system.

That's the great thing about Linux , it's so diverse.
