Solus Kicks Off 2017 with First ISO Snapshot, Improves Out-of-the-Box Experience

As far as we know, this is also Solus’ first ever ISO snapshot since the Linux-based operating system became a rolling distribution, allowing users to have an up-to-date installation image of Solus that they can use for reinstalling the OS or deploy it on new computers without the need to download hundreds of updated packages. Many of you were asking Solus devs when the ISO snapshot is coming, so here it is, shipping with lots of improvements to the out-of-the-box experience, the latest stable Linux kernel from the 4.8 series, an improved graphics stack based on X.Org Server 1.18.4 and Mesa 13.0.2 3D Graphics Library, and the latest Nvidia proprietary drivers.
