Evolve OS is ‘evolved’ from once popular and now discontinued Solus OS. Though it’s not entirely based on Solus OS as it is partly written from scratch. It will be using a forked version of PiSi package manager. It is currently in early stage of development and with beta version of Evolve OS released recently.
Evolve OS also born with a very similar to the Google operating system design, but unlike Chromixium immediately wanted to uncheck those who said they wanted to imitate. In fact, in recent betas we have seen how they have begun to experiment with placing the Launcher bar at the top of the screen.
Evolve OS no longer is named but Solus Project, perhaps the honor to Solus OS project created and discontinued years also by the same developer. Solus is possibly one of the most ambitious projects of this list, because instead of just using the work of others as a distribution base is created from scratch.
Precisely the interest in wanting to create its own operating system from scratch and the fact that this project has carried almost year and a half in development, and to tackle the obstacle of not having a ecosystem as large as the other applications. In any case they are already seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, and this week announced that the final version is about to arrive.
The most eye catching thing about Evolve OS is its default desktop environment Budgie Desktop. Budgie, which is based on GNOME 3, resembles Chrome OS and looks elegant. Though still in beta, you can install Budgie in Ubuntu for experiment sake.
