Description

SparkyLinux is a GNU/Linux distribution created on the "testing" branch of Debian. It features customized lightweight desktops (like E19, LXDE and Openbox), multimedia plugins, selected sets of apps and own custom tools to ease different tasks.

Sparky is in-between the distros that are beginner-friendly and those, that require some amount of Linux knowledge. Beginning Linux users are advised to consult the project forums regarding any issues or doubts.

    Sparkylinux works perfectly, very easy to use with many useful tools. I installed Gnome 3.18 via Synaptic even if it's not supported and enjoying it for months with no issues so far.
