Solus 4 ist endlich da und bringt einige spannende Veränderungen für das Solus Projekt mit! 

Wie im Podcast bereits ausführlich besprochen, sind Releases bei Rolling Release Distros ja nur ein Mittel um Aufmerksamkeit zu bekommen aber dieses mal sind tatsächlich auch relevante Änderungen dabei.

Solus 4 Budgie

Solus Budgie is a feature-rich, luxurious desktop using the most modern technologies.

Visuell hat sich bei Budgie nicht viel verändert obwohl im Zuge der Veränderungen die anderen Desktop Umgebungen wie Gnome, Mate und Plasma eingestellt wurden.

Solus Hippy At The Helm Ikey Dockerty hat NerdZoom.de in einem Interview bestätigt, dass Solus 4 jetzt auf Ubuntu basiert und den Wayland Compositor “Wayfire” nutzt.

Außerdem wird vom Rolling Release Modell Abstand genommen.

Its become apparent over time that targeting a single vertical and architecture has serious drawbacks, as we’re unable to satisfy the requirements of all the obscure architectures Solus *might* run on.

Additionally we have come to realise that people do not want or need a curated set of packages known to work, in lockstep with a rolling release cycle that is known to work at each weekly snapshot.

To adapt to the needs of our evolving user base, we have decided that software does not need to be up to date, instead users should manage their own software sources and rely on third party PPAs to ensure the stability of their systems.

Finally, whilst we originally set out with the promise of “Install today, update forever”, it is clear we were naive in this thinking. Users want to reinstall. They enjoy a challenge just as much as we do, and it was indeed wrong of us to take away the joy of manually migrating and backing up all data and preferences every 6 months to facilitate the far superior “nuke and pave” option, so that our users can always benefit from that “fresh paint smell”

Es bleibt also spannend bei Solus!
