ROSA Desktop Fresh 2012 GNOME preview

The GNOME 3 edition of ROSA Desktop Fresh 2012 has been released. ROSA Desktop Fresh is the latest line of Linux desktop distributions from ROSA Laboratory, a software solutions provider based in Moscow, Russia.

This is a community-supported edition from ROSA Lab developers that has not been officially sanctioned by ROSA Laboratory, though there is an ongoing discussion to make it and other desktop editions official spins or editions.

It was just released yesterday and I managed to install it in a virtual environment. The installation and boot process has one feature that the KDE edition does not have – a first boot program that gives you the option to enable a few daemons.

While a full review is still cooking, ROSA Desktop Fresh 2012 GNOME preview brings you a few screen shots from that test installation.

The default desktop is a “pure” GNOME Shell. No extensions installed.
