The Enso team is very happy to announce the first beta release of Enso OS, version 0.1 Seedling!
Enso aims to be a clean and simple OS that is easy to use and incorporates some of our favourite projects from around the Linux world.
Built on top of Xubuntu for a solid and reliable base, we have re-themed XFCE to our own liking, added some nice features to the environment and ship it with some extra application in which we hope you'll enjoy...
Xubuntu is just great, we chose this as a base because in our opinion it is one of the most reliable and sold systems out there, we have been using it for a number of years and have encountered very few issues. We took all of the best features from the existing system and molded it to work with what we required.
Gala (window manager) by the elementary team has been incorporated into the shell of XFCE to provide some nice additional features to our environment. Such as animations on various tasks like launching, minimizing and closing application, application selection and repositioning of application (right, left, maximized or normal), workspace selection and multitasking view.
Panther Launcher is also included in our environment, to help with it's ease of searching for and launching of applications.
Plank is the simplest and nicest looking application dock there is (in our opinion) it does what it needs too and does it without issue.
To download Enso and give it all a try head over to our documentation page to find out where you can download it from.
From there you can also get more information and tutorials on Enso, to help you get going with installing and first use of our system.
Thank you & Enjoy
