Solus is a Linux distribution built from scratch. It uses a forked version of the PiSi package manager, referred to as "eopkg" in Solus, and a custom desktop environment called "Budgie", originally developed for distribution only.
The Budgie desktop mimics the look and feel of the GNOME desktop 2. Distribution is only available for 64 bit computers. In general, the distribution has impressive graphics and according to other reviews the Budgie desktop is particularly beautiful and functional.
I tested the Gnome flavor distribution, as I tried Budgie before, it was impossible to change language in the traditional way using Alt + Shift. Searching the web I found out that this problem was too many, and the developer of the project was not very interested in this change.
So since you can not teach an old dog new tricks, I decided that distribution is not for me.
Yesterday I saw the Gnome version and decided to try again, as with Gnome I never had a problem with the shortcuts. I did not install the distribution, but I passed the ISO to a USB and I tested the Live Edition. Yes the shortcut was there ..
As for the Live environment, it was not stable. There were a lot of cracks, Firefox closed alone as I was writing this publication, and then it did not open. They tried to open the terminal to stop the ghost process, but the terminal did not open. I tried to open the System Monitor graphic to stop the process from there, again without luck.
I do not want to offend the distribution as I did not install it, but the Live Edition was awful.
Package Management is a Solus application called eopkg, as I mentioned above, and has its own software repository. It is similar to the apt dpkg of Debian and seems quite easy to use. You can easily install applications with sudo eopkg install-name application. The repository of Solus is packed with popular applications that are always in the latest version.
The distribution also has a graphical Software Center similar to the Ubuntu Software Center or GNOME Software.
As I mentioned above, I do not want to offend the distribution, because despite all the difficulties I've encountered in the Live Edition, all the reviews I've read about Solus show it as a very impressive and credible project.
But I'm thinking of waiting for a while before I install it properly. If you want to do it earlier, here is the link for ISO:
You will find it in Budgie, GNOME and MATE
