Waha GNU/Linux is an open source Linux distribution based on the well known Debian GNU/Linux operating system and built around the comprehensive GNOME desktop environment.

It’s distributed as 32-bit/64-bit Live DVDs

It is distributed as two Live DVD ISO images, one for each of the supported architectures (32-bit and 64-bit). By default, each Live DVD supports both English and Arabic languages.

The boot menu provides advanced options

Users will be able to use the 32-bit version on either i486 or i686 PAE machines, by choosing the right options on the boot menu. Besides the ability to install the system (in text-mode or graphical mode), the boot menu also provide some advanced options, such as to boot the operating system that’s already installed or to test the RAM (system memory) for errors.

Use it in live mode or install on a local drive

As always, we strongly suggest to test the distribution via its live environment before installing it. Waha GNU/Linux provides all the features that are integrated into Debian GNU/Linux, but its main focus is to be easily accessible by anyone, especially by novice Linux users.

Comes pre-loaded with useful and important apps

The operating system comes pre-loaded with some of the most important and useful open source applications and programs. In addition, it provides users with full support for a wide range of hardware components.

Offers a pure GNOME desktop experience

The desktop environment will offer you a pure GNOME experience. Default applications include Iceweasel web browser, Evolution email client, FileZilla FTP client, Transmission torrent downloader, Empathy instant messenger, Rhythmbox music player, VLC Media Player, and the entire LibreOffice office suite.

Among other applications, we can mention Blender, OpenShot, Synaptic Package Manager, Wine, Geany IDE, Sqlliteman, Totem, Curlew, Audacity, Brasero, Cheese, Sound Juicer, Blender, gimageReader, GIMP, gThumb, Inkscape, Shotwell, Tux Math, Tux Paint, Tux Typing, ChmSee, Tomoby, Time Tracker, Gedit, and numerous games.

Bottom line

Overall, it is a clean and well designed Linux distribution. If you like GNOME and Debian we suggest to give Waha GNU/Linux a try.
