• GNOME OS is taking shape but its to serve for testing the desktop

    GNOME OS has traditionally been a virtual machine image for testing, but with the work done by Codethink and other GNOME developers it';s becoming possible to run GNOME OS on bare metal hardware. Additionally, thanks to the likes of Flatpak and OSTree,
    it';s becoming more like a working Linux distribution in terms of package availability.
    GNOME OS is part of the project';s continual testing investment and can be booted on real systems with UEFI via systemd-boot, systemd is leveraged throughout, Flatpak is available for a broad application base, Wayland and XWayland are utilized, the
    latest Mesa drivers are present, and OSTree provides atomic updates.

    GNOME OS seems similar to KDE Neon, and I think it';s a great idea. It allows GNOME developers and users to easily test the latest and great versions of their software, without being dependent on distributions.
