Linux Distro To Try: Cub Linux

Cub Linux (formerly Chromixium) is an Ubuntu-based Linux distribution that attempts to recreate the look & feel and functionality of Google’s Chrome OS on a conventional desktop.

It combines the Openbox window manager with the Compton desktop compositor, Plank dock and LXDE’s LXPanel to provide the desktop and menus.

The Chromium web browser, equipped with the PepperFlash plugin, is the main online application, although the complete array of Ubuntu software can be easily added for offline/desktop use.

Ubuntu updates are installed automatically, providing long-term security support.

The latest version of Cub Linux is 1.5, which released in July 2015.

The developer of Cub Linux announced the Cub Linux Foundation, in an attempt to get more developers on his team due to the growing popularity of Cub Linux:

Cub Linux needs you! This distro is growing too big for one man to manage. I am pleased to announce the creation of the Cub Linux Foundation and so far there are empty seats at the table to be filled! This is a call to arms for those of you with a vested interest in Cub Linux, where it is now and where it will be in the future. To secure its future, I am looking for developers, artists, writers and enthusiasts from all walks of life to join the Foundation so that Cub Linux can become a true community Linux distribution.

If we cannot get a Foundation together, then frankly, I face burnout and the project faces stagnation. Google and Ubuntu are both working towards desktop and mobile convergence in their own ways, and these provide challenges but opportunities for Cub Linux.
