EasyOS Ushers in New Era with Long-Term Supported Release

EasyOS, the Linux distribution known for its container-centric approach and live persistence, has unveiled its latest iteration:EasyOS 6. 0. This release marks a significant milestone for the project, kicking off a new Long-Term Supported (LTS) series.

The software packages themselves are built upon a customized version of the OpenEmbedded Scarthgap release, another LTS project with support extending until April 2028. Further bolstering the package ecosystem is a custom layer dubbed "meta-quirky, " crafted by EasyOS developer Barry Kauler. This layer injects an additional 240 software recipes alongside a multitude of patches for existing ones, ensuring a comprehensive and well-rounded application suite.

Users can expect a plethora of pre-installed applications catering to diverse needs. From creative powerhouses like GIMP and Inkscape to office essentials such as LibreOffice, EasyOS 6. 0 boasts a well-equipped arsenal. Multimedia enthusiasts are well-served with applications like Celluloid for video playback and Flowblade for video editing. Development tasks are facilitated by Geany, a lightweight yet versatile code editor. System management is a breeze with utilities like GParted included in the mix.

This LTS release signifies a commitment from the EasyOS team to provide a stable and secure platform for users for an extended period. With its focus on containerization, live persistence, and a rich application suite, EasyOS 6. 0 presents a compelling option for users seeking a unique and efficient Linux experience.
