Linux Distro To Try: HandyLinux

HandyLinux is a French distribution designed for novice Linux users. It is based on the latest stable version of Debian GNU/Linux and it uses the Xfce desktop environment.

The main feature of the distribution is a custom start menu with applications and Internet bookmarks grouped in tabs.

HandyLinux integrates the latest versions of the Chromium web browser, LibreOffice office suite, Skype conferencing and messaging client, VLC video player and other popular applications with the stable Debian base.

A simplified application package

Browsing the net, manage mails, a full office suite to work, many software to manage your media’s library (picture / sound / video), an application to discuss with your family and friends, that’s all accessible from the HandyMenu.

An oversized software center

With thousands of applications, the repository of the parent’s distribution Debian GNU / Linux is accessible in few clicks, as all your needs will be covered.

A perfect documentation

Committed to sharing knowledge, HandyLinux community gives you access to detailed documentation of the system, to take charge around an integrated initiation, but also to go further and build your own working environment.

Accessibility tools

Because it would not be right not to consider it, HandyLinux natively integrates tools to combat disabilities, such as screen magnifier, a virtual keyboard or voice synthesis available in Firefox.

Communauty’s governance

An infrequently used in the IT world where developers typically require choices, here, everything is subject to debate, and if the interest is growing for a tool, it will certainly be adopted by the whole community. The real decision is us all together!
