UbuntuDDE 20.04, the first stable version of future Ubuntu flavor with Deepin environment

UbuntuDDE 20.04

Today just a month ago we talk to you which will probably become the XNUMXth official Ubuntu flavor. The graphical environment that will use that flavor will be Deepin and yesterday it launched its first stable version: UbuntuDDE 20.04. And if reading this introduction you are doing the math, it would be the tenth flavor because there are currently eight, but Ubuntu Cinnamon is already dealing directly with Canonical to enter the family of their operating systems.

The launch took place yesterday May 5 and, as you would expect from the date and numbering, it is based on Ubuntu 20.04 that was released on April 23 and whose code name is Focal Fossa. Like the rest of the family, it comes with general news, such as the kernel Linux 5.4, and it will be supported for several years but, since they have not said how long exactly, we assume that it will be the 3 years offered by flavors such as Ubuntu MATE or Kubuntu.

What does UbuntuDDE 20.04 include as a highlight

  • Based on Ubuntu 20.04.
  • Linux 5.4.
  • Version 5.0 of Deepin Desktop Environment (DDE).
  • Packages updated to the latest version.
  • Ubuntu Software, with support for Snap and APT. In case you are wondering, it is the gnome-software package, which means that it is not the restricted version of Ubuntu 20.04 and it is compatible with Flatpak packages (how to enable support in 20.04).
  • LTS version, supported for 3 years (not confirmed).
  • Beautiful, modern and stable design.
  • Deepin software installed by default.
  • Improved driver support.
  • Kwin window manager.
  • Future updates of the operating system via OTA.

The UbuntuDDE team recommends using their operating system on computers that have at least less 2GB of RAM (4GB recommended), a 30GB hard drive, and a 2GHz processor or higher. If you are interested in trying UbuntuDDE 20.04, you just have to go to your download website and download the ISO that is available from various hosting services.

Personally, although I reserve my opinion, I would like to ask you: Do you think UbuntuDDE is an interesting option that will be installed on many computers?

    Use DEEPIN back, is this version recommended for a student of computer systems?

    I looked for the source code and they have not published it. Neither on their website do they specify the operating system license, they only mention "open source" on the donation page.

    I use Deepin for about a year. And I like. Some other bug but nothing important. I would switch to this new flavor without a problem.

    I like Deepin, not so its origin (China) for which it implies (it is full of malware = they spy on you). This new flavor of Ubuntu promises to eliminate the latter. I will try it

    First that it comes from China does not mean that it has malware installed ... Lastly, they install it for you by other means, and I doubt that the Chinese government cares what kind of no at a time? ‍♂️
    Second nowhere have they put the source code?

    I really like the desktop environment, so far it is the most attractive thing I have seen in desktop environments, if ubuntu adopts it as official it will definitely change me from Ubuntu to UbuntuDDE, hopefully and soon it will be an official distro.
