Linux Distro To Try: Rebellin Linux OS

The Rebellin Project was started by Utkarsh Sevekar to create a reliable, fast and secure Linux based Operating System. Rebellin Operating System is based on Debian GNU/Linux – the universal operating system. Rebellin therefore brings with it all the Debian goodies and a host of additional features.

The latest update announcement for Rebellin Linux was released on May 9th, 2016 and read:

Building a stable system on Debian Sid that’s reliable for day to day usage is hard. It took me quite a while this time. But I’m immensely happy with the result. Here’s Rebellin Linux v3. With the latest and greatest software from Debian. It’s fast, reliable and got all you need for a great multimedia experience.

List of updates:

  1. Gnome Shell upgraded to v3.20
  2. Mate Version upgraded to v1.12
  3. Kernel upgraded to v4.5
  4. SMXI scripts integrated
  5. Infinality Font Rendering Patches
  6. Droid Fonts added
  7. Improved theme for the Mate version
  8. Bluetooth support added to Mate version (It was previously missing! Silly me.)
  9. Plenty of package and driver updates
  10. Rebellin Manual with great beginner friendly tutorials available free of cost.

Some changes:

  1. Gnome terminal replaced by terminator. This enhances Gnome Shell stability. Gnome Terminal is buggy and results in system freeze.
  2. Totem replaced by VLC. Redundant software removed for building a lighter product.
  3. GDM3 replaced by LightDM. GDM3 was problematic during the build process. Resulted in blank screen on start up. LightDM works fine.
