Announcing AriOS 4.0 Beta (Based on Ubuntu 12.04)

First, I should sincerely apologize to all our loyal users for such a long delay. I was very busy and although I had almost finished my 11.10 remix I couldn’t release it.

Now I’m very happy to announce AriOS 4.0 Beta, based on the upcoming long-term support (LTS) version of Ubuntu.

Although both Ubuntu 12.04 and AriOS are in Beta, I consider this release a very stable and robust system, as Canonical has done a great job on making Precise stable and bug-free.

AriOS comes with the latest updates from the Precise development branch up to March 26, 2012.

In this release we offer a great array of the latest and greatest free desktop environments.

Like before, AriOS comes with it’s own proven desktop layout, based on GNOME 3 and the awesome Avant Window Navigator.

The default AriOS session uses compiz as window manager and falls back to Metacity on systems without accelerated graphics drivers (AriOS-2d).

Also available are the latest versions of Unity, Gnome-Shell, Unity 2D and Gnome classic (fallback).

Multimedia playback and flash work out of the box, and you have a choice between Firefox and Chromium for web-browsing.

The wonderful social client Choqok is also installed, making your social experience in Twitter and a great pleasure.

For your graphics needs, the GIMP, Inkscape and Blender are installed.

There are many more apps and tweaks that you should see for yourself.

Summary of major packages:

Linux Kernel

GNOME 3.3.92

Unity 5.8.0

Firefox 11.0

Chromium 17.0.963

VLC 2.0.1

Virtualbox 4.1.10 (with extensions pack)

Synapse 0.2.10
