Have some fun with Deepin 12.12 alpha


Linux Deepin is one of my favorite desktop distributions. A Chinese distro that is based on Ubuntu Desktop, it is not just a rebranded Ubuntu desktop, but offers a desktop computing experience different from that of its parent distribution.

Its graphical package manager, music and video players, and a cool screen shot tool, are original to it. While previous editions offered a customized GNOME Shell desktop, the next edition, Linux Deepin 12.12, will ship with a new desktop environment called Depth Desktop Environment (DDE). And the graphical package manager, music and video players, and the screen shot have been spiced up. From what I’ve seen, Deepin fans will be very pleased with DDE and everything else that comes with it.

The first and, most likely, the last alpha edition was released a few days ago. The problem with pre-stable editions of Linux Deepin, is that the ISO installation images are in Chinese only. English-only language user have to wait until the final edition before they can install it. So I tend not to publish any article on an upcoming release until the final edition hits the download mirrors.
