Robolinux is a user-friendly and intuitive operating system based on the latest stable release of Debian GNU/Linux.
One of the project’s more interesting features is the availability of a pre-configured virtual machine support pack with Windows XP or Windows 7 – a VirtualBox setup which allows the user to install and run the Windows operating system seamlessly alongside Robolinux.
This is an optional add-on that must be purchased from the project’s online store.
An announcement by the Distro’s founder read:
After receiving a 5 star review at http://topnewreview.com/robolinux-8-4… Robolinux is extremely pleased and excited to announce its new upgraded Robolinux 8.5 Raptor Cinnamon, Mate, Xfce & LXDE 32 & 64 bit versions. Undoubtedly the biggest news is that all 16 Robolinux 7 & 8 Live versions now come with a FREE OS Installer and can be downloaded for free on SourceForge. Please permit me to say it again “There is NO MORE CHARGE for our OS Installer” which was how we funded 3rd party Linux Application Developers!
Gaming enthusiasts will be thrilled because we added Steam to v8.5. We also updated Stealth VM and the Robolinux C Drive to VM for Windows XP, 7 & 10 so it works with VirtualBox 5.0 and above which is great news for Linux Mint and Ubuntu users! Please note: VirtualBox 5.0 is not yet compatible with Debian 8. We also fixed its apt-key in all Robolinux Raptor versions which Oracle broke for no reason.
All Robolinux Raptor 8.5 versions are based on 100% rock solid current Debian 8 stable source code running the newest Debian 3.16 Linux kernel plus over 250 important upstream security and Application updates, the newest Tor Browser, Firefox 47 and Thunderbird 45.1.1
As usual all four of the upgraded 32 & 64 bit Robolinux Raptor Version 8.5 Operating Systems come with over 120 custom built wifi, video & Printer drivers and can run Windows XP, 7 & 10 virus free inside. Every version is loaded with many popular one click installer applications such as the Tor browser, i2P, several very popular multimedia apps, Google Chrome, Google Earth, Skype & VirtualBox plus 12 incredibly powerful Security and Privacy apps to keep our Users safe!
Linux Beginners and Advanced Users will be very pleased indeed!
Current Robolinux 8 series users can upgrade in just one click by using the built in Robolinux Auto Upgrade button in the main menu.
Please Note: Some PC’s & Laptops with video cards manufactured before 2008 are no longer supported in the Robolinux 8 Raptor series LTS 2020 (i.e. Debian 8). However the Robolinux series 7 Operating Systems LTS 2018 do still support these old video cards.
