SolusOS: A New Linux Distro with a Focus on the Familiar

Based on Debian Linux, SolusOS is a beginner-friendly desktop Linux whose next version–now in alpha–features a GNOME 3 fork designed to look and behave just like GNOME 2.

SolusOS quickly sprinted up DistroWatch’s page-hit rankings following the release of its first stable version, called “Eveline,” back in May. Now situated at No. 26 on that list, the distro just saw the release of a fifth alpha version of SolusOS 2 about a month ago.
