Rhino Linux, Ubuntu Rolling Release in stable version could be a reality


It's been a long time since Martin Wimpress, leader of the Ubuntu MATE project and who at the time was head of the Canonical desktop, told us about Rolling Rhino. With the name of an animal and an adjective starting with the same letter, what he proposed was basically to use some scripts to make the Ubuntu Daily version use the developer repositories, in order to be updated for life as a Rolling Release distribution. . Now we know that RhinoLinux wants to do the same, but using the stable version of Ubuntu.

To be honest, I did not know the existence of Rolling Rhino Remix until I ran into an article in the Linux blogosphere. Let him take surname «Remix» it may mean that it intends to enter the Ubuntu family, but that it does not carry the name of the operating system could be a problem. The project was born as many others usually do: a developer decides to do what he likes the way he likes it and shares his work. He does it for fun, but everything can change if the community supports the idea.

Rhino Linux has no release date

It was the support of the community that made http.llamaz change your plans. Rolling Rhino Remix has been renamed Rhino Linux, and the intention is to make an Ubuntu Rolling Release not have to be updated every six months or two years. Rhino Linux users would install the system once, and receive updates for life.

To be more specific, what we will get will be a Xubuntu Rholling Release. has been chosen the Xfce version for its stability and speed, as well as that it is customizable. The package manager you will use will be pacstall, based on AUR, but a long way from the Arch Linux community repository. Being the operating system based on Ubuntu, it is expected that APT can also be used.

About a release date, only one detail is known: will arrive in 2023.
