Solus OS – Hello everyone today I am going to show you how to install Solus OS 2017.04. Solus OS is a new Linux distribution that is not based on other distribution. Solus OS 2017 is available in several flavors such as GNOME, Budgie and MATE desktop environment. On this tutorial, I am using Solus OS GNOME edition. If you are planning to install Solus OS on a dedicated PC or laptop, you can create Solus OS Live USB and then boot your computer with the USB flash disk. I think this is the best way to install Solus OS. If you just want to try it without installation, simply use the Live USB and boot your computer with it.
