New Version of Elementary OS Has Landed

The newest version of elementary OS 0.4, dubbed Loki, has landed today and it is impressive. More than a year in development, elementary OS ships with a carefully curated selection of apps that cater to every day needs so you can spend more time using your computer and less time cleaning up bloatware.

One of the major new features of elementary OS is their new Open Source App Store.

The AppCenter brings handcrafted apps and extensions directly to your desktop. Quickly discover new apps and easily update the ones you already have. No license keys, no subscriptions, no trial periods.

Loki is being built with the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS repository, which means it comes with Gtk 3.18, Vala 0.32, and Linux 4.4 as well as a multitude of other updated libraries. Loki also removes Ubuntu’s Ayatana with a brand new set of wingpanel indicators for a better experience.

From their website…

“elementary OS is Open Source… Our code is available for review, scrutiny, modification, and redistribution by anyone. We dont make advertising deals and we don’t collect sensitive personal data. Our only income is directly from our users. elementary OS is Safe & Secure. We’re built on Linux: the same software powering the U.S Department of Defense, the Bank of China, and more”

If you want an impressive, beautiful and snappy linux desktop based on Ubuntu, give elementary OS a try.

I am a linux user for over 10 years and Ubuntu linux is my only operating system. I originally made the jump from Windows to Ubuntu and open source back in early 2007 (using Ubuntu 6.10) for privacy and virus concerns.
