Linpus Lite Desktop Edition is
an extremely powerful yet versatile desktop, notebook,
hybrid and ultrabook Linux operating system. It stands
out from with other its rivals in several key areas:
It has added functionality specifically designed to make
the most of the touch screen and other tablet
functionality of the newest classes of convertible
It is built with a big nod to the future with deep
integrated support for HTML5 applications and cloud
It has best in its class power saving and faster boot than most other Linux distributions.
The Lite part of our name certainly does not mean
lacking functionality - Linpus Lite is a robust, full
functioning operating system with as much detail paid to
productivity as well as entertainment. The Lite part of
the name came from our focus on creating Linux solutions
that were easier to use and faster to boot. For us, Lite
signified fun, fast, quick to learn; light on
difficulty. In keeping with this, Linpus Lite was one of
the first Linux distributions to offer a fully
customized UI and dual launchers with a user experience
specially designed for those new to computing (past
iterations have been at the forefront of the netbook
revolution as well as quick boot). Now we continue to
strive to innovate around the user experience in the
light of new trends; integrating web apps, touch, and
adapting for the PC’s new role as part of an ecosystem
of devices connected by the cloud.
Linux Lite is updated every six months and is supported throughout that time with regular updates, upgrades and additional applications continually being added to the app store. The latest version Lite 2.1, released on February 14th, continues with the theme of making Linpus Lite unique in its support for web and HTML5 – as well as deep touch support and better power saving for increased battery life.
