Solus is an independently developed desktop operating system based on the Linux kernel and using budgie, its own desktop environment derived from GNOME. Starting with the Debian branch of Linux it migrated to a unique approach including Pisi and Evolve OS.
It is offered as a curated rolling release model under the slogan "Install Today. Updates Forever". For those who prefer updating their system through command line, Solus uses the eopkg command line package manager which is based on PiSi. Our friends at It's FOSS created simple "How to use eopkg" guide .
Solus contains a wide variety of desktop environments depending on release chosen, options include Solus' own Budgie Desktop, GNOME, MATE and KDE Plasma.
It is the perfect distribution for a variety of uses cases. Whether you are looking for a distribution suitable for home and office work, for developers, for content creators, or for gaming, this distribution supports it all.
New Feature: Hybrid Torrents
Hybrid torrents support the BitTorrent V1 and V2 protocol. Its support is not well spread out yet so we recommend that you still use v1 (aka the "torrent" column).
