Linux

This weekend, I decided to install a new distro on my netbook. I saw Linux Deepin just released a new version so I gave it a try. And it was a right decision, Linux Deepin is really a perfect distro in my opinion.

Linux Deepin overview

Linux Deepin is based on Ubuntu ( I guess it must be Ubuntu 12.04 LTS). The ISO image of Linux Deepin 12.12 is over 1GB so you will need a DVD or a big enough USB to install it. As usual, I used Unetbootin to create a bootable USB and boot up the live version without any trouble.

Installing Linux Deepin is similar to Ubuntu or Linux Mint since it also uses the ubiquity installer. However, when you decide to install Linux Deepin, you will be asked to choose between Chinese and English since Linux Deepin is from China. It didnt take me long to get Linux Deepin installed to my netbook:
