I just installed the new ChaletOS 14.04.3 on my VirtualBox and I am very excited with this new distro. ChaletOS 14.04.3 is an Ubuntu based Linux desktop which is very beautiful, easy to use and lightweight. I fell in love at the first sight on this ChaletOS desktop. The default desktop is very simple with clock on the right side and the taskbar at the bottom.
Many new Linux users having difficulties to switch and tuned in with most Linux desktop. But with ChaletOS, this kind of problem does not exist. ChaletOS adapted a simple, traditional start menu, where we can easily access all installed applications. We can easily switch between category right away from this start menu.
ChaletOS can be customize easily. We may switch between predefined themes from its settings. Or, we can create a custom look of ChaletOS as well.
You will have some essential applications by default. Mozilla Firefox is the default web browser, Thunderbird email client, qBittorrent client, PDF viewer application, Audacious, Cheese and VLC are found in Multimedia category. Unfortunately there is no Office suite comes along with ChaletOS default installation. But don’t worry, we can easily install more applications from Software Center.
With all those features, is it difficult to install ChaletOS on a computer? The answer is NO. Its very easy and straight forward to install ChaletOS on a PC or laptop or a virtual machine. You may read my previous tutorial on how to install ChaletOS 14.04.3. So, Windows 10 was released and its a good operating system. But, ChaletOS 14.04.3 already here. Its a good Linux distro and worth to try.
