Endless OS is a free operating system created by Endless Computers, an OEM that managed to bring its Linux operating system to the masses by shipping it pre-installed on numerous laptops.
East It is a robust and simple operating system that facilitates the use of technology for its users and brings information anywhere. This Linux distribution has a series of preloaded applications, just over 100 applications that we can count on by default in this distribution.
The distribution provides your users with a simple and simplified user experience using a GNOME 3 forked custom desktop environment, besides this, this distribution has two versions: Lite and Full.
The first It is recommended to those who have regular access to the Internet and can be done with the applications offered at any time and on the other hand the Full which is for those who do not have an Internet connection and this includes all the packages offered by the system.
Endless OS is based on GNOME with which it managed to create its own interface for the system, which is offered to users to facilitate the use of the system for newcomers to use Linux.
Upon launching Endless OS, users are greeted by an app drawer from where they can immediately launch the apps they need.
The operating system is designed to work both online and offline and you will be able to install any other application you can consider.
