The Fastest Booting Linux OS Solus 1.0 Is Finally Released

From past few months, we have closely observed the developments made by the Solus OS team. Now, the Solus Project has finally released the first version of its operating system after the hard work spread over a period of eight months and more than 2000 package builds. Solus 1.0 is codenamed Shannon after Ireland’s longest river.

For those who don’t know, Solus 1.0 is a Linux distro built from scratch that brings along its own desktop environment named Budgie. In the past, Solus OS managed to clock some impressive boot numbers at about 1 second. Started by Ikey Doherty, Solus promises full control to the devs as both the operating system and the desktop environment are made by the same team.

Features of Solus 1.0:

Desktop Environment Budgie:

Targeting the x86_64 architecture, Solus 1.0 is built for the modern desktop with a clear design. The GTK-based desktop environment developed by the team is referred as Budgie.
The features of Budgie include a highly-efficient menu that allows you to quickly access the installed programs in compacts and category view. There’s a notification center referred to as Raven that helps you to manage the notifications and customize your experience.

Package Manager eopkg:

The Solus OS uses a package manager named eopkg that helps you to install/remove packages. With eopkg, you can search the repos for packages and manage them. An efficient package management system helps to sort packages to keep things organized.
