Helal Linux 3.0 is an Ubuntu-based operating system with support for Arabic languages. It has both Unity 3D and the GNOME Shell 3.2 interface, as well as the GNOME Classic one.
Hanny Sabbagh, the main developer behind the Helal Linux project, contacted us a couple of days ago in regard to his brand-new operating system, based on Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot).
As the title says, Helal Linux 3.0 is an Ubuntu for Muslims, supporting both English and Arabic languages. It contains lots of fixes for bugs still present in Ubuntu 11.10.
Among the included apps present in Helal Linux 3.0 we can mention LibreOffice 3.4.3, Y PPA Manager, Skype, Pidgin, Othman, Monajat applet, Hijra applet, FileZilla, Firefox 7.0.1, The GIMP 2.6.11, CompizConfig Settings Manager, Chromium, GNOME Tweak Tool, and Google Chrome.
At the moment, Helal Linux 3.0 is in Beta stage. Therefore, it should NOT be installed on production machines, as it is intended to be used for testing purposes only.
