Endless OS

Last Update: 2018-04-12 23:16 UTC

Endless OS is a Linux-based operating system which provides a simplified and streamlined user experience using a customized desktop environment forked from GNOME 3. Rather than using a traditional Linux package management system, Endless OS uses a read-only root file system managed by OSTree with application bundles overlaid on top.

We have been piloting Endless OS in juvenile justice facilities in Oregon with positive outcomes. The key take away is the number of applications offered, no active Internet needed and the cost savings for sites with limited budgets.

If you are capable of installing a linux OS on your own, you are not the target audience for EndlessOS. If you would like to try a linux OS that is simple to use and usable offline also, then have a friend install EndlessOS for you, and you will not be disapointed. If you fall into the category of one who has never deleted an email, this seriously is for you. Really. Do you have a friend in a rent subsidised high-rise, that doesn't even have internet, then you can set up a game playing, information gathering machine for them that actually works offline.

The trade-off seems to be that it is sluggish starting each app, but once started they all run fine. Once again, if you are skilled this OS is not for you, but consider it as an option to install for your less computer literate friends.
