Q4OS 1.6.2 ‘Orion’ Linux Distro Has Just Been Released


Not too long ago the Q4OS development team released significant Q4OS 1.6 ‘Orion’ heavily packed with multiple improvements, arriving with the Trinity R14.0.3 stable version.


The default desktop looks slightly changed in this 1.6 release. The Q4OS ‘Bourbon’ start menu reminds us of Windows XP with a polished task bar. There’s also a new ‘software to install’ list in the Native Desktop profiler tool,

Now, the second maintenance update has been released in the form of Q4OS 1.6.2 ‘Orion’ which brings an improved experience to the previous version along with a hand full of bug fixes. This version is also based on Debian GNU/Linux 8.5 ‘jessie’. It also contains fixes to the issues that users reported together with the latest software versions that were released since the 28th of August, 2016. You can read the notes by Softpedia’s Marius Nestor to know more.

The Q4OS Linux distro has many installation options available in order to allow for an easy transition for new beginners. So, if you want to install the OS on your computer you are free to download the installation ISO available in 32-bit and 64-bit formats.
