Q4OS is a Debian-based open source Linux distribution that comes with Trinity desktop environment, which is forked from KDE. The latest release, Q4OS 1.6.2 ‘Orion’, improves the previous version and fixes the bugs reported by users. The existing Q4OS 1.6 or 1.6.1 OS users are advised to update their systems to the latest version.
Last month, Q4OS development team released significant Q4OS 1.6 ‘Orion’ loaded with multiple improvements. This release arrived with Trinity R14.0.3 stable version. Orion is a Long Term Support release that will be supported till May 2020 and provide your security patches and updates.
In the 1.6 release, the default desktop look was slightly changed. The Q4OS ‘Bourbon’ start menu, which reminds me of Windows XP, and task bar were polished. The Native Desktop profiler tool also got a new ‘software to install’ list.
Now, after two weeks of Q4OS 1.6 release, the second maintenance update has been released in the form of Q4OS 1.6.2 ‘Orion’. This release improves the experience of the previous version and brings along a bunch of bug fixes. It’s based on Debian GNU/Linux 8.5 ‘jessie’.
