Q4OS is a Debian-based Linux distribution and is designed to offer a familiar Trinity environment to the Windows user who is thinking of changing the operating system.
It is a fast and powerful operating system that offers a highly productive environment work, with the security, reliability, long-term stability and conservative integration of proven new Linux features.
The system is distinguished by speed and the very low hardware requirements. It works flawlessly with brand new machines as well as very old computers.
The system is also very useful for virtual cloud environments because of the very low hardware requirements.
I tried the Q4OS Live CD and the experience was incredible. It's not one of the distributions I use, but I recommend it to those who work with Windows and want to try Linux.
From appearance to installation, everything is reminiscent of Microsoft's operating system. If you look at the images, you will notice that even the app installers appear to be from another platform…
Own encoders and drivers
On the welcome screen you will very easily find the option to install "Multimedia Codecs" as well as drivers. No problem, just do it click on the button and one appears guide. With a few clicks on “Next” you will see the “Install” option to install your codecs and drivers.
The new Q4OS 'Orion' 1.8.4 is the latest stable version of the distribution and comes with various improvements and fixes.
The most important news feature is the integration of alternative environments work. So if you don't like the Trinity desktop you can choose to switch to another DE that is more Linux-like: KDE, Xfce, or lxde.
The Q4OS Orion distribution stopped supporting the LXQT and according to the developers it will come back with the release of Q4OS Scorpion.
The Icedove messaging application is no longer available from the Q4OS installation program as it has been replaced by Thunderbird 45.8.
