ChaletOS 16.04 is an impressive & polished XFCE Distro
I tried the new ChaletOS 16.04 XFCE distro based on Xubuntu 16.04 LTS, and it is an impressive and polished linux distro. It offers a smooth transition to former Windows users using the familiar Windows 7 launcher, along with a number of tools for the new user like: Start Point- a grouping of recommended downloads, and how-to videos, Synaptic Package Manager, as well as many of the best-in-breed linux applications like: Firefox, Pidgin IM, Audacious music player, VLC audio/video player, Winetricks, and more. It does not come pre-loaded with an Office Applications Suite, but LibreOffice is available for download. It also offers a number of very polished themes available through the Style Changer. In the Style Changer, it also offers pre-configured Conky Manager themes. This alone is a big time saver for the new user. It runs fast and looks great with a large number of high quality wallpapers too. Users looking for a polished, fast, and easy to use distro, have found a new home in ChaletOS 16.04. Below are my screen shots and a link where to download it. Enjoy.
