Linpus Lite 1.6 desktop edition screenshot preview

Linpus Technologies, Inc., a Linux software solutions provider with headquarters in Taipei, Taiwan, today announced that the latest edition of the desktop edition of Linpus Lite is now available for download.

The last edition of Linpus Lite that was reviewed on this website, was Linpus Lite 1.4, and that was in September 2010 (see Linpus Lite 1.4 review). That edition was good in some ways, bad in others, but in general, was usable, though it lacked basic security features that I expected to see in a modern Linux distribution.

The latest release, therefore, provides an(other) opportunity to see what, if anything, has improved in this RPM distribution. But while the review is being readied, here are a few screen shots from a test installation. If you would like to take it for a spin yourself, you may download an installation image here.
