Solus 1.0 Screencast and Screenshots


Solus 1.0 Screencast


Quote:
The Solus Project is proud to announce the release of the first version of its operating system, Solus, on 27th of December, 2015. Solus 1.0 is codenamed Shannon after the longest river in Ireland.

Solus 1.0 is the result of over eight months of work, coalesced from over a dozen contributors, over 2000 package builds, a rewrite of the premier desktop environment Budgie, and more.

Solus

Solus is a Linux-based operating system built from scratch for the modern desktop and targeting the x86_64 architecture.

Budgie

The Solus Project develops a GTK-based desktop environment referred to as Budgie. Budgie ships with a multitude of features, such as the ones below.

Raven

Budgie ships with an applet, notification and customization center referred to as Raven. Raven enables you to:

Easily access calendar information, sound volume, media player controls, and more via Applets view.
Manage incoming application and system notifications via Notifications view
Customize your Budgie and system experience by enabling you to:
Toggle system-wide Dark theme.
Change GTK and icon theming
Add, remove, and modify Budgie panels, their properties as well as their displayed applets.
Obtain quick access to system settings and power options such as restart, suspend, and shutdown.

Package Management

Solus uses a package manager called eopkg. eopkg supports standard functionality, such as:

The installing / removing of packages
Searching of repositories for packages
Management of repositories

The package management system also separates out packages into components, which are categories and sub-categories that describe what the application or library may provide. For instance, firefox is within the network.web.browser component.

Applications

Solus 1.0 ships out-of-the-box with numerous applications to enhance the desktop experience. Below are some highlights of applications Solus 1.0 ships:

firefox 43.0.2
nautilus 3.18.4
rhythmbox 3.2.1
thunderbird 38.5.0
vlc 2.2.1

Looks nice. The default background is pleasant, and the menu looks very nice. Overall, the interface looks a bit "chunky" which is not my personal test, but I think many people like that style.
