Deepin 15 Linux Released
Deepin 15 adds new system sound effects, Qt is powering the desktop to replace their previous HTML5+WebKit implementation, Mutter is now used as the window manager, the Linux 4.2 kernel is used, systemd has replaced Upstart, Bash is now the default shell rather than Zsh, GCC 5.3.1 is the base compiler, and many other changes. Fundamentally different is switching from an Ubuntu based to now using Debian Sid. The rewrite of the desktop in Qt is also a big deal.
More details on today's Deepin 15 release can be found via the Deepin blog.
