Ikey Doherty has announced that the Solus 1.0 operating system eIt is officially available for download. Without a doubt, good news and a good Christmas gift for all of us.
This distribution is quite different from the typical GNU / Linux distributions that we are used to. To start strong, this distribution moves away from traditional desktops like Cinnamon, Gnome, Plasma ... and bet on your own desk, the Budgie desk, a desktop created with GTK.

Let's say the version is not finished yet, since they have been detected some errors that they have said will be corrected as they release new updates. From errors with the AMD drivers, to errors with the famous Steam platform, to errors in the HP brand printers, which at the moment do not work correctly in Solus 1.0.
Without a doubt, the most attractive thing about this distribution is its Budgie desktop. In this desk, it is committed to a design that is classic but updated at the same time. The biggest complement to Budgie is the Raven menu, thanks to which we can easy access to everyday things like the calendar and music and at the same time see all the notifications quickly.
Also both Budgie and Raven desk they are fully customizable, in which we can change the color of the theme, the icons and add notification panels or widgets.
Solus 1.0 is certainly a different distribution, in which sand has been working for about a year and a half And it seems that the hard work has paid off. Now is the time to test the distribution and for everyone to have their opinion on it.
To download it, let's go to official website of the Solus project, in which we will have vmultiple torrent servers to download the ISO.
