Simplicity Linux 16.04 is here

Simplicity Linux Lxde

The new version of Simplicity Linux brings us a new version of the Kernel among other important news

The Simplicity Linux development team has announced that a new version of that operating system is now availableThis is the new version 16.04, which is the successor to version 16.01, which came out in February.

This operating system is based on the Lxpub operating system, a low-resource distribution consisting of a Puppy Linux with the Lxde desktop. Speaking of Lxde, simplicity Linux also uses that desktop as its main desktop.

This operating system I was going to have been on the market a little earlierHowever, there was a small storage bug that delayed the release by a few days. This operating system comes in three different versions, the Mini version (also called Netbook), the X version and the Desktop version.

Among the novelties that Simplicity Linux 16.04 brings we have to use Kernel 4.0.4 in Mini and Desktop versions and Kernel 4.4.5 LTS.

As for the programs that each version comes preinstalled, we have the Mini version of Simplicity Linux nbrings you Adobe Flash Player, the latest version of Mozilla Firefox and little else, since that is why it is called Mini version. As for the desktop version, we have more applications pre-installed such as Gimp, Libre Office, MPlayer or Thunderbird, apart from what the Mini version already brings.

As you have already seen, the Mini version brings the basics like a browser and little else and the Desktop version already brings everything you need to work normally with a computer.

As for the version X, is an experimental version in which they are getting into and trying new things, therefore, it is not 100% stable and it is not recommended for development environments, being a separate version, let's say.

We can download both versions by accessing the website of SimplicityLinux, Ya que on the right side we have the direct link to the ISO images of each version.
