Dubbed Berserker, Escuelas Linux 5.0 is based on the recently released Bodhi Linux 4.0.0 distribution, which, in turn, is based on Canonical’s Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system. Being primarily based on Bodhi Linux, Escuelas Linux 5.0 uses the Enlightenment-based Moksha desktop environment as default graphical interface. However, it uses Ubuntu 16.04’s long-term supported repositories.
As mentioned before, Escuelas Linux 5.0 is a major release that includes numerous updated components and applications, among which we can mention the LibreOffice 5.2.3 office suite, Google Chrome 54.0 and Chromium 53.0 web browsers, LiveCode 8.1.2 rapid application development runtime environment, Kdenlive 16.08.2 video editor, Gcompris 0.61 educational software, and Kompozer 0.8 WYSIWYG HTML and CSS editor.
Escuelas Linux 5.0 also offers a revamped look and feel that is more modern and appealing to newcomers. The distro supports both English and Spanish languages, and it suffers from the same AMD Radeon graphics driver support as Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and Bodhi Linux 4.0.0, meaning that only a few AMD Radeon graphics cards are supported at the moment.
