Yesterday, the developer famous for being the first to adopt many new features He launched a new version of Exton | OS and the version that has been available for about 24 hours already uses Linux 5.4 as the kernel of the operating system.
In addition to the new kernel, the other most outstanding novelty of the latest version of Exton | OS is that it has become based on the version of the operating system developed by Canonical that was released last October: Ubuntu 19.10 Eoan Ermine.
