Linpus Lite is a Linux distribution published by Linpus Technologies, Inc., a Linux software solutions provider based in Taiwan. Linpus Lite Desktop is, as the name suggests, the version designed for traditional desktop computing. Aside from that, the company also publishes other editions (for example, Linpus Lite Android Edition and Linpus Lite PCTV), but those are for OEMs and ODMs vendors only, and not available for download by the public. (OEM – Original Equipment Manufacturer; ODM – Original Design Manufacturer.)
Linpus Lite Desktop 1.7 is the latest stable release of Linpus Lite Desktop. The previous version, Linpus Lite Desktop 1.6, was reviewed at Linpus Lite Desktop 1.6 review. While I am still working on publishing a review of the latest version, here are a few screen shots for your viewing pleasure.
This is the boot menu. Slightly different from the one on Linpus Lite Desktop 1.6.
Installation in progress.
Splash screen. Not as beautiful as the one on Linpus Lite Desktop 1.6.
User account setup step of the installation process.
The default desktop. Linpus Lite Desktop 1.7 is powered by GNOME 3.2. This screen shot and the three after it, are taken from the GNOME Fallback mode running in a virtual environment. I have an installation on real hardware, but the system does not come with any software installed, other than Firefox. So it was not possible to take screen shots of the main GNOME 3 desktop.
Downloading Linpus Lite Desktop 1.7 was a pain. It is the slowest download I have ever attempted. If you are patient enough, you may download an installation image from here.
