Solus is an open source, desktop operating system, based on Linux. Having been released in 2012, Solus is a relatively new operating system, with almost 6,000 members registered in the SolusOS forums currently.
In August 2017, Solus released its latest software update 'Solus 3', which is based on the latest version of Kernel and should have improvements in its native Opus encoder, new multimedia filters.
Main features: LibreOffice Suite, Firefox, PlayOnLinux, Budgie desktop environment, Thunderbird, XChat, OpenShot Video Editor, Transmission and VLC.
Pros: Java and Flash add-ons are pre-installed, as are all other applications listed in the key features, so use is made almost immediately after installation.
Cons: This operating system is quite new, so some bug fixes will still be needed.
