back to article Linux project's first full version has all the subtlety of a Rhino in a China shop

The first release of Rhino Linux brings the rolling release model of Arch Linux to an Ubuntu base, along with the do-it-yourself ethos. Rhino Linux 2023.1 is the first full release of a new distro we mentioned last October – as we did its progenitor, Rolling Rhino half a year before then. Rhino Linux is a rolling-release …

    Maybe next year.

      In what way is the 3rd link connected in any way?

    Alternative to this alpha system?

    Mint Cinnamon or KDE might be better. Rolling upgrades might be possible using either the Discover application (Snap, Flatpak and Debian), the Apt, or appimage application, to update the applications.

    Other Ubuntu-based systems also offer easy updates or reversals on the available Linux kernels. Various backup reversals are also available, especially if the BTRFS system is used instead of Ext-4.

    Other Ubuntu-based systems that might also be preferred are Wubuntu and Lite Linux. Using this Ubuntu base allows their PPA system to also keep this timing update as required.

      This comment looks an awful lot like spam, but it seems to engage, just from a position of no comprehension at all.

      > Mint Cinnamon or KDE might be better.

      Why? How? Give some examples.

      The desktop is *not* the issue here.

      > Rolling upgrades might be possible using either the Discover application

      No, they are not. Not at all in any way. I do not think you understand what a rolling-release distros is or means.

      > Other Ubuntu-based systems also offer easy updates or reversals on the available Linux kernels.

      Please give some examples.

      > Other Ubuntu-based systems that might also be preferred

      Preferred why or how, for whom?

      > are Wubuntu

      I have looked at the website. It violates multiple trademarks and makes multiple claims that are literally impossible. An example:

      «

      The Microsoft Windows 11 Control Panel has been ported to Windows Ubuntu

      »

      That is a flat lie.

      > and Lite Linux.

      Do you mean Linux Lite?
