Sporting an efficient, user-friendly DE with powerful apps, it strives to strike the perfect balance between beauty and minimalism, lightness and feature-loaded maturity. Being Linux, it can be dynamically modified to accommodate any usage/workload with ease, and given it's open-source, the possibilities are countless.
Featuring 'lightweight' applications and pre-tweaked for most common usage and workloads, it strives to take a step in the right direction - becoming the desktop Linux should have always been.
By default, the OS ships with a collection of minimalist, lightweight, commonly used applications, including but not limited to:
-Google Chrome
-Steam and Desura Client
-VLC Media Player
-and so on.
The numerous under-the-hood tweaks to enhance performance, coupled with the form-with-functionality philosophy, and it's amazing lightness, makes the OS a capable, splendid, hi-performance out-of-the-box OS for everyone.


  • Lightweight, running on most modern desktops and laptops out of the box
  • Extremely flexible and user friendly
  • Ships with best-in-class default apps
  • Powerful update system, with bleeding-edge software
  • Pre-tweaked and fine-tuned for maximum performance
