The biggest piece of news concerning the Escuelas Linux 4.4 release is that the OS has been rebased on the recently announced Bodhi Linux 3.2 distribution, which in turn is based on the Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) operating system.
However, it looks like there are so many internal changes that the Escuelas Linux development has team declared the 4.4 release as the most important in the history of the project, and it is highly recommended as a replacement for old Windows XP PCs.
But you can also install Escuelas Linux on computers where Windows 8 or Windows 10 is running much more easily, thanks to the UEFI improvements added in the 4.4 release. Additionally, the installation manual has been completely redesigned.
Numerous of the pre-installed packages have been updated to their latest versions at the moment of the release of Escuelas Linux 4.4, and among the most important ones, we can mention LibreOffice 5.1.2, Mozilla Firefox 45.0, and Geogebra 5.0.226.
