Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, SlateKit Base is a Linux-based operating system created to help developers create a personalized Qt/JavaScript/HTML5 interface for their tablet.

Also, it has an on-screen keyboard, its own lock screen, a built-in internet browser based on Chromium, a root filesystem inspired from Ubuntu 14.04 and support for hardware accelerated graphics (via libhybris)

For now, SlateKit is available only for the Google Nexus 7 2013 tablet, but some developers are already working at porting it on other Android compatible devices.

So, if you own a rooted Nexus 7 tablet with adb shell access, you can download the SlateKit Base image from here and give it a spin.

For more information, see the developer’s site.
