MakuluLinux LinDoz, comes based on Ubuntu 18.04.4, Kernel 5.3 and more


Last year I spoke here on the blog about an excellent distribution that can be recommended for those who are migrating from Windows to Linux. And it is that as for this offer if there are some distributions that have an approach to be kind to the change, but even so they are few compared to the large number of distributions that currently exist, in addition to the fact that most of them are based on Debian or Ubuntu (no other base comes to mind at this time).

Going back to the point, the distribution I'm talking about is "Makulu Linux", which like other distributions with the same approach, it has a visual environment designed to look as similar as possible to Windows 7.

As such, the goal of the distribution is to be nice to Windows users, MakuluLinux comes pre-installed with Wine and PlayOnLinux so that users can install all the Windows applications and games they want, as well as the Steam client for Linux, the Chromium web browser, the Synaptic package manager and the Pidgin instant messaging client.

Like other variants of Linux designed for those who are migrating from Linux, Makulu comes pre-installed with codecs and drivers necessary for a smooth multimedia experience on a variety of hardware platforms.

The point of mentioning the distribution again is to share with you the news that was released several days ago of the release of a new version of this distribution, which completely changes the basis of the system and with which it is they renew many components of this.

What's new in MakuluLinux LinDoz?

MakuluLinux LinDoz comes with many important changes and it is that to start this new version MakuluLinux 2020.02.21 arrives with its code name "LinDoz" and that instead of continuing to take the Debian foundation, it is now reformulated and switched to Ubuntu, with which the most current LTS version is taken, which is Ubuntu 18.04.4.

With this we can learn a little more about what this new version offers us, since it takes many of the internal components of Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS.

One of them is the Linux kernel 5.3 and which provides many features to the distribution in addition to offering greater hardware support.

Another change is that now this new version receives the Ubuntu updates along with your updates additional ones supplied by Makulu directly.

On the other hand, lThe developers mention that there are also some other differences in the key functions of its predecessor, since LinDoz now offers some innovative ways to make access to key parts of the system operational and Makulu doesn't just supply kernel patches when needed.

LinDoz is now also compatible with more Window applicationss thanks to the constant updates that Wine receives. In addition, it has the 32-bit support library that has been added to Steam along with optimizations to improve the gaming experience.

Regarding the environment offered to users that mimics that of windows, Cinnamon 3.6.7 is provided by default to provide a comfortable place.
