That’s sad news. I don’t use Solus anymore, but I really liked it when I did. That’s the second lead gone from the Solus project. What’s going on over there?

It’s one of the distros I’ve had in my “one day will test in a VM” list for a while, but so much turbulence makes me wonder how long it’ll last.

Never heard of Solus, is it based on Debian?

Evolve OS or now known as Solus is an independently developed operating system, uses eopkg as package manager and comes with Budgie, GNOME, MATE or KDE Plasma as the desktop environment.

It is rolling-release. So the change here is pretty hard because Strobl is very hard to replace.

It is Linux, just independent.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
