Recently The release of the update package of the Deepin OS 15.9 distribution was released, which for those who still do not know about this great distribution should know that it is based on the Debian package.

However something that characterizes this distribution is the development of its own Deepin Desktop environment and some 30 user applications, including DMusic music player, DMovie video player, DTalk messaging system, installer and Deepin Software Center installation center.

The project is being developed by a group of developers from China, but it also supports Russian language. All developments are distributed under the GPLv3 license.

About Deepin OS

The components and desktop applications are developed using C / C ++ and Go, but the interface is configured using HTML5 technologies using the Chromium web engine. A key feature of the Deepin desktop is a panel that supports multiple modes of operation.

In classic mode, a more obvious separation of open windows and applications offered for startup is made, the system tray area is displayed.

Effective mode is somewhat reminiscent of Unity, mixing indicators of running programs, selected applications, and control applets (volume / brightness settings, connected drives, clocks, network status, etc.).

The program's start interface is displayed in full screen and offers two modes: view selected applications and browse the catalog of installed programs.

    A doubt (without acrimony, that on the internet everyone sees it as an offense to express an opinion, it is only a doubt and in a good way). I thought it was based on HTML before but now it is QT / QML. Their SDK is full of qml. On the page it says “[…] Deepin has developed a frontend interface based on Qt5 […]”. https://github.com/linuxdeepin/deepin-qml-widgets/tree/master/widgets I'm still wrong and it was the other way around, I don't know. But I think it was before a mix of GTK with HTML and now QT with a lot of QML.
