An Ubuntu-based Live Linux operating system specifically designed for Shila Amzah fans

editor's review




Shila Amzah fans now have their own distribution of Linux thanks to ShilaOS, an Ubuntu derivative that uses only open-source software and a bunch of wallpapers with the famous singer.

It’s distributed as a dual-arch Live CD

The OS is distributed as a dual-arch Live CD ISO image that can be booted on 32-bit or 64-bit computers. It has approximately 700MB in size and can be written to a CD disc or a USB thumb drive.

You can start the live system or boot from the local drive

There are only three boot options on the boot menu, the ability to start the live system with default kernel parameters or in safe graphics mode by using the xforcevesa entry, as well as to boot an existing operating system from the first disk drive.

The desktop environment is traditional, powered by GNOME Classic

GNOME Classic is in charge of the graphical desktop session inside ShilaOS, providing users with a traditional interface that offers a single panel located on the bottom edge of the screen, which can be used by users to launch applications and interact with running programs.

A standard set of open-source applications is included

The distro includes a standard set of open-source applications, among which we can mention the Mozilla Firefox web browser, Pidgin multi-protocol instant messenger, Gwibber social networking client, AbiWord word processor, Gnumeric spreadsheet editor, Audacious audio player, Audacity audio editor, VLC Media Player, BleachBit system cleaner, Gedit text editor and Synaptic Package Manager.

It’s a fast desktop-oriented Live operating system for Shila Amzah fans

All in all, ShilaOS is a lightweight, fast and user-friendly desktop-oriented Live operating system for Shila Amzah fans around the world. The default language for the live session is English and it can be easily installed on a local drive using the built-in installer.
