Endless OS

Last Update: 2019-10-28 19:29 UTC


Endless OS is a Linux-based operating system which provides a simplified and streamlined user experience using a customized desktop environment forked from GNOME 3. Rather than using a traditional Linux package management system, Endless OS uses a read-only root file system managed by OSTree with application bundles overlaid on top.

Nightmare of the distro. Bluetooth doesn't work, Wi-Fi hotspot doesn't work. Usles distro. Only for kids that connect computer to Wi-Fi and play games. Grownups will avoid this distro that's for sure. You cannot install programs, only a few of them. I need a computer that work, not crippled one.

I have used many distributions over the last decade and like to tweak about and mess with whatever I install, although Endless cannot be messed round with in this way I have to say it is very responsive on my Baytrail based tablet and evrything works except the cameras this is the same on all distros for this hybrid. Autorotate and touch gestures work without having to do any additional setup, therefore i am giving a 10 and will use this for a few weeks to evaluate it better.

Well done Endless.

Installing now on Gnome Boxes using Solus. Will adjust scoring accordingly as I work with it. So far, so good.
