Rhino Linux 2023.1 Released As Ubuntu-Based Rolling Release OS

Written by Michael Larabel in Operating Systems on 8 August 2023 at 05:24 AM EDT. 4 Comments
Rhino Linux has rolled out of beta as a community-based, rolling-release Linux distribution derived from Ubuntu.

Rhino Linux had been in beta for several months for this Ubuntu rolling release that evolved from the earlier Rolling Rhino Remix distribution. In addition to being a rolling release flavor, further differentiating it from upstream Ubuntu is that it uses Pacstall as an AUR-like package manager for Ubuntu. Rhino Linux also uses the "Unicorn Desktop" as its blend of the Xfce desktop environment. Rhino Linux also prides itself in using "sane default" and strives for a better user experience.

I haven't experimented with Rhino Linux myself yet but a number of Phoronix readers have expressed interest in this Ubuntu rolling-release effort. For downloads or to learn more about this new Linux distribution effort, see RhinoLinux.org.
