Why 'Lite'? The Lite part of our name certainly does not mean lacking functionality - Linpus Lite is a robust, full functioning operating system with as much detail paid to productivity as well as entertainment. The Lite part of the name came from our focus on creating Linux solutions that were easier to use and faster to boot. For us, Lite signified fun, fast, quick to learn; light on difficulty. In keeping with this, Linpus Lite was one of the first Linux distributions to offer a fully customized UI and dual launchers with a user experience specially designed for those new to computing (past iterations have been at the forefront of the netbook revolution as well as quick boot). Now we continue to strive to innovate around the user experience in the light of new trends; integrating web apps, touch, and adapting for the PC's new role as part of an ecosystem of devices connected by the cloud. Latest Version Linux Lite is updated every six months and is supported throughout that time with regular updates, upgrades and additional applications continually being added to the app store. The latest version is 1.9 which has a number of significant upgrades, among them, the touch and web app integration mentioned above.
What's new in this version:
