ROSA Lab Rilis ROSA Linux Desktop Fresh LXDE Edition

ROSA company is glad to announce a further expansion of ROSA Desktop Fresh R1 distribution series — an update of its distribution based on lightweight desktop environment, LXDE.

This distribution uses the same code base as recently released ROSA Desktop Fresh R1. The main difference of LXDE-based edition is a tendency to be minimalistic while preserving flexibility and usability. The new version includes only really necessary software and is built with the “the easier – the faster” principle in mind: high work speed is achieved at the expense of simple interface and absence of “wonderful” effects. The release is based on the time-proved GTK+2 framework, though some components are using the latest developments from GTK+3/GNOME3. As a result, the system is rather conservative but provides a set of modern features.

The new ROSA distribution differs form its analogues by a convenient system control center which can be launched from the system menu or by typing “lxde-control-center“ command.By means of this control center one can adjust different system settings:

The main system characteristics of this release are the same as of ROSA R1 based on KDE4 except RAM requirements – LXDE edition can be installed to machines with 256 Mb of RAM, the recommended RAM size is 384 Mb.
