ROSA releases a lightweight version of ROSA Desktop Fresh R1

Сообщение ДроноваЮ » 20 июн 2013, 17:57

ROSA company is glad to announce a further expansion of ROSA Desktop Fresh R1 distribution series — an update of its distribution based on lightweight desktop environment, LXDE.
This distribution uses the same code base as recently released ROSA Desktop Fresh R1. The main difference of LXDE-based edition is a tendency to be minimalistic while preserving flexibility and usability. The new version includes only really necessary software and is built with the "the easier - the faster" principle in mind: high work speed is achieved at the expense of simple interface and absence of “wonderful” effects. The release is based on the time-proved GTK+2 framework, though some components are using the latest developments from GTK+3/GNOME3. As a result, the system is rather conservative but provides a set of modern features.
The new ROSA distribution differs form its analogues by a convenient system control center which can be launched from the system menu or by typing “lxde-control-center“ command.By means of this control center one can adjust different system settings:


The main system characteristics of this release are the same as of ROSA R1 based on KDE4 except RAM requirements – LXDE edition can be installed to machines with 256 Mb of RAM, the recommended RAM size is 384 Mb.
Versions of the major system components:
  • kernel-nrj-laptop-3.8.12
  • lightdm-1.6.0
