Dejan Petrovic has just announced the availability of a new version of ChaletOS, specifically the version ChaletOS 16.04 that we already have available for download.
ChaletOS 16.04 is based on Ubuntu 16.04 (hence the numbers match) and basically it is an Ubuntu modified to resemble the Windows 10 operating system, something that despite not achieving at all, if they get a system quite similar in appearance.
This new version also copies Ubuntu when it comes to support, sharing the same LTS support as Ubuntu 16.04, also relying on the same kernel, also long-lasting support.
Regarding the appearance similar to Windows 10, ChaletOS achieves this appearance using the Gnome desktop in combination with a series of GTK2 and GTK3 skins, along with a custom icon pack.
Although most Linux users may find it absurd to imitate the appearance of Windows (since that is why you install Windows), it does have a reason for being. Some users who have been using Windows t for many yearsThey are afraid to install Linux because of the great change it entails, so installing a linux system that looks like Windows can make the change easier.
ChaletOS is also ideal to install in educational centers, so that children who have grown up with Windows can take their first steps in Linux without having difficulties or fears. Once they have gotten used to ChaletOS, they can now move to other operating systems with a linux, let's say more pure and traditional.
How could it be otherwise, the operating system comes in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. To download the ISO images of this system, we will do it from its official page clicking here.
Well ... What do you think of ChaletOS? right idea or instead do you think it is unnecessary a system that mimics the Windows interface?
