Feren OS: a peculiar distribution that you should know

Fern OS

The distribution Fern OS I'm sure he's going to make people talk, and many have already become quite fond of him. Surely from now on you will see more frequently the logo of the origami bird that carries the Feren OS flag. Many point out that it is an ideal replacement for Microsoft Windows and open source Apple MacOS, in fact, it is an impressive Linux operating system that could replace many other Linux distributions and captivate users who try it.

Use a Cinnamon desk, without more options, something that could be the only impediment for many to try it if they do not like that desktop environment and prefer others. However, Feren OS does include a good amount of configuration options to customize it and is quite flexible in this regard, so Cinnamon might not be as much of a hindrance as it may seem at first. On the other hand, newcomers to the Linux world also have it easier when choosing a flavor for this distro, since there is only one environment ...

Lovers of ease they will also be delighted, since it includes a simple installer that will not give problems, in addition to including a wide repertoire of software in its repository. It allows to configure and install software packages with a single click, another added facility that other distros such as Ubuntu, etc. already had. The DVD also includes Live mode, allowing you to close the welcome screen to test the system directly without installing it and if you like, proceed with the installation.

The latest release has been Feren OS 2017 codenamed "Murdock", yes, surely you are thinking about the one we all remember, Ian ... and it is based on Linux Mint, therefore it belongs to the great Debian family. But for those who do not finish calling too much Linux Mint, say that the developers of Feren OS have done a pretty good job customizing the desktop shell and have left a fairly minimalist and pleasant environment. I mean, it's cinnamon flavored. For more information or to download it, you can consult the official website of the project.

    It did not convince me at all:
    The changes that have been made to the classic Cinnamon menu make it more uncomfortable to use, but the worst thing is to configure the themes: for example, for the borders of the window in Metabox theme it looked without colors.
    It seems that the only innovation is to be able to choose the browser (in my case Chrome) without downloading the corresponding .deb file.
    I like Linux Mint better, I don't recommend it.

    Another distro that does not contribute anything, is a Linux Mint with a different theme that's all, without any imagination. I prefer fast, stable, beautiful, and easier-to-use Linux Lite than Mint, the best I've ever installed, on my 2011 Dell Inspiron.
