Distro Hoppin`: Igelle 1.0.0

Filed under
Linux

What I've got here is a Linux distribution that is based on... NOTHING! Yes, peeps, you've heard me! Igelle stands proud on its own two feet and presents itself as "the world's most flexible operatings system". It comes not only as the desktop version I'm looking at today, but also as an OS for Mobile Devices, Servers and Embedded Systems.

The project's website is pretty darn good organized and offers plenty of information as well as comprehensive documentation and community forums. The logo has a cartoonish feel to it, but looks very nice in its lively orange coat. I'm not sure where the name Igelle comes from, but hey, it's a name.

Having recently reached the venerable 1.0.0 version, what better time to take it for a spin?

If that’s not reliable, then I’m wasting time trying to fix the one tool my job requires.
