Linux Deepin 2014, a distro based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS is now available for download. Deepin is using its own deskop environment called DDE(Deepin Desktop Environment) created with HTML5 and GO language. Deepin is one of the most popular Ubuntu derivative in China. It is officially supported by Kingsoft corportation ( the creators of WPS office, a free office suite for linux looks like new msoffice).
Deepin Uses its own Music Player Dmusic, its own video player DPlayer and its own software centre called Deepin Store.
The Deepin Desktop Environment 2.0 is much more responsive, resource friendly (excusing the Compiz dependency) and highly distinctive. DDE 2.0 adds some new features like hot corner settings, ability to uninstall software directly from the application launcher etc. The overall look and feel of DDE 2.0 is much more neat and clean for an average linux user.
The Deepin Control Centre puts all the system settings into a new desktop panel. The system settings are directly accessible from desktop itself make tweaking of the system like configuring display, network and theme management very easy. The overall look of the Deeping Control Centre is elegant and repsonsive.
Deepin 2014 is includes lots of bug fixes and new features. More than 30+ team of developers are working to develop various applications included in Deepin 2014. The Dmusic, Dplayer, Deepin Store are now great piece of software for a normal user.
The Deepin Sofware centre is a fantastic location for finding more apps and Games Centre makes finding free, fun programmes more easier. It looks and works awsome compared to Ubuntu’s own software centre.
