The KDE window manager predates almost all other distros popular today. It still makes a elegant desktop display resembling older versions of Windows. PCLinuxOS is a very stable Linux that predates Unbuntu. I used PCLinux for years before discovering Linux Mint and I still like it.
I just found Endless OS. It is another Chromebook clone that has full Linux and Chromium capabilities. They produce their own settop boxes and release the operating system as open source. We’ll look at its plus and minuses.
Do you have a Linux issue? Bring it to the meeting and we’ll try to help.
