Distribution Release: Linuxfx 10.5

  • Rafael Rachid has announced the release of Linuxfx 10.5, the latest stable version of the project’s Ubuntu-based distribution with a look and feel that emulates Windows 10 and with useful tools designed to help users migrate from Windows to Linux. This version is based on Ubuntu 20.04 and it features a highly customised Cinnamon desktop called “WX Desktop”. Some of the improvements in Linuxfx 10.5 include: support for older computers; a re-worked Wine compatibility layer with better support for Windows games as well as *.exe and *.msi files which can now be launched by double-clicking them in the file manager; inclusion of OnlyOffice 5.6.0 “Desktop” edition at the expense of LibreOffice; updated desktop theme and control panel; re-designed login and logout screens; improvements to file sharing. The Linux kernel has been updated to version 5.7.15. Here is the brief release announcement (in Portuguese). This new version of Linuxfx, which supports English, Portuguese and Spanish languages, is available from SourceForge; here is the download link: linuxfx10.5-wx-lts.iso (2,048MB, pkglist).
