Why GNOS ? Project history and numbers
GNOS Core is a simple way to get ZFS and/or FDE with a minimal Ubuntu base.
GNOS CLI is a supercharged command-line environment.
GNOS GUI leverages the GNOME user-experience with enhanced usability & uniform dark theming.
GNOS Apps provides a comprehensive & curated Linux desktop software collection.
The project started in 2014 as an alternative Ubuntu installer featuring native ZFS filesystem and full-disk-encryption support.
Then in 2015, tired by the old Linux “Year of the Desktop” meme, I wanted to build a minimal dark-themed GNOME Desktop for Ubuntu.
In 2016, I shifted the project as a devel-oriented workstation.
Finally, in 2017, I raised the scope to a general Linux desktop experience.
Since 2018, the project has received numerous bug fixes and polishing from beta-testers.
