I've been using Nitrux since 1.0.10 and having followed them on Twitter since back then I was very excited to try the new release. znx is definitely something new, and while I'm not a very technical person just a regular desktop user, I'm very interested in not having to deal with a package manager to update my system.

I've had Nitrux in a VM for some months now, but I didn't really use it since it seemed to me that it was just another Ubuntu spin but boy was I wrong!.

Putting aside their great themes what they're doing it's just a breath of fresh air in my list. Focusing on AppImages, their new apps and this little thing called znx, holy.

I'm very excited to see where all of this is going.

When I first heard about Nitrux, I thought "ugh another Ubuntu respin, great..." but after reading their blog posts, I'm convinced that this is one unique Ubuntu spin-off.

Sure it looks good, but it's got to be something special about it and what they are doing looks like it's got some tremendous potential. In the meantime, I'll try it on VirtualBox.
