SolusOS – a Debian based, beginner-friendly Linux distribution with GNOME 2 desktop.
SolusOS 1.x is based on stable version of Debian GNU/Linux “Squeeze”, and the first release was published in May 2012.
It features the GNOME 2 desktop, a set of applications for everyday tasks, such as: LibreOffice, Firefox, Thunderbird, XChat, OpenShot Video Editor, Transmission, VLC, PlayOnLinux, Java and Flash plugins, Synaptic package manager, etc.
SolusOS FirstRunWizard helps installing non-free drivers for NVidia and ATI graphics cards.
The next release of SolusOS 2 was built from stretch.
It used GNOME 2 desktop and then its own fork of GNOME 2 Flashback (the GNOME 3 Fallback Mode), called “Consort”.
The project has been closed in 2013.
The founder and developer of SolusOS is Ikey Doherty.
There is another project develops by Ikey – EvolveOS, which uses Budgie desktop. It was renamed to Solus in 2015, so make sure that SolusOS and Solus are two different projects.
