As you may know, Solus is a free, open-source Linux system built from scratch, using beautiful artwork and an awesome, lightweight desktop environment called Budgie, which has a simple but modern user interface, an applet, notifications and a customization center.
Solus 1.0 has been released in late December 2015, but the developers do not plan to stop the work here.
The latest build of the system has received crypto optimizations in the Linux Kernel 4.3 packages and Wacom support improvements. The Wacom settings can be managed via the GNOME Control Center, Budgie desktop has been updated to version 10.2.2, support for over 20 languages, Mumble notification fixes, better Firefox support, icon fixes and screen resolution changes.
Also, Firefox 43.0.3, Scribus 1.4.5, Audacious 3.7.1, Gnumeric 1.12.25, LibreOffice 220.127.116.11, and Adobe Flash Player 18.104.22.1689 are used by default.
Speaking of Budgie, the developers are providing packages for other systems, including Fedora, OpenSUSE and Manjaro.
