Linpus Lite 1.4 screenshots

Linpus logoLinpus Lite 1.4 is the latest distribution that I am currently reviewing. While the review is in progress, I thought posting a few screenshots is in order. If you are not familiar with Linpus Lite, it is developed by Linpus Technologies, Inc. of Taipei, Taiwan. The company’s main distribution was Linpus Desktop, which was based on the old Mandrake Linux (now Mandriva). The Linpus Desktop line is no longer officially available for download (Linpus Desktop 9.6 was the last edition reviewed on this website).

The company has since shifted strategies to focus on developing Linux for netbooks and smartbooks. Linpus Linux QuickOS and Linpus Lite are the editions it now makes available for download. QuickOS is an ODM/OEM distribution, while Lite is available for download. Linpus Lite 1.4, released on July 30, 2010, is the latest update, and also the first to come with a standalone installer. Previous Lite editions only came with a Windows installer.

So while the review is still being out together, enjoy these screenshots. You may subscribe by email or RSS to have the review automatically delivered to your inbox or Feed reader when it is published.

Update: The review has been published – Linpus Lite 1.4 review.
