Sounds good. I will try it once I have a chance to do it. Anything interesting about Solus that others do not have ?
Abhi Sorry i haven't used many distros so can't say what is interesting about this. One thing is for sure, boot time is super fast. Regular updates with no bleeding issues.
This one, right ?
Jason Regular updates with no bleeding issues.
That is what matters. How long do they support a version ?
admin It is not like a version, the development keeps going and you need to do an upgrade from one version to other. It was Solus 3 and Solus 4 is the version. Updating switches you to new one.
Abhi He he he, can't afford Mac so settled with Linux.
You sounded like a Mac guy to me @Jason
I am amazed that you are a Linux fan.
A lot of tech savy people use Linux these days. It is like smart people's operating system. A lot of people think so. But to be honest, Linux and its DEs have become very user friendly. It is almost the same as using Windows or Mac.
I hear a lot about this
They say it is light weight and usual promo talk. There is a chance that I do not know and it is really good.
Jason It was Solus 3 and Solus 4 is the version. Updating switches you to new one.
Does it have an app store ? Apps do get updated with new versions ? How long can we use without upgrading ? Like using Windows 7.
Which one are you on now ? Solus 4 ?
Jason can't afford Mac so
Abhi It has an app store and it has all the need software for me. You can use it as long as you like. They don't have an end cycle.
admin He he he he, really i can't afford Mac.
Jason They don't have an end cycle.
You have to switch off updates ? As in Windows 7 ?
Abhi Probably turn off system updates other than security patches i believe. Sorry a novice user here so don't know much about it.
Can you post a screenshot of the app store ? What is it called ?
It is just named Software Center and here is the screenshot of the app store
Looks like a puppy
Looks very organised. Good work by Solus team.
I'm a long time Linux Mint user, having previously come from Ubuntu. I've tried most distros over time, and finally settled on mint with cinnamon as the DE. I've also used KDE (mostly Neon) but always somehow found my way back to mint.
I'm a Windows user at work, but at home I refuse to use or buy Microsoft products - they are mostly expensive, a monopoly, and a complete joke when it comes to security.
I tried Mint in my system, i found it interesting but after few days of usage i felt it is not for me so switched distro.
Jason it's all about preference and what you feel comfortable with. It's for that reason that most Windows users who try Linux for the first time often go back to what they had before. It's not apples for apples and the expectation of a likewise system is often met with confusion. You can make Linux "look like" Windows, but under the hood it's a very different animal.
