Linpus is a Linux distribution developed and supported by Linpus Technologies, Inc., a company based in Taipei, Taiwan. It is very popular in Asia, with a significant market share in Taiwan and China.
Origin – Home Page: Taiwan – Linpus Linux
Desktop: Gnome (default), KDE, and Linpus-3D desktops (Compiz Fusion and Avant Window Navigator – AWN).
Price: Free and Open Source.
Installer: Linpus Linux 9.6 sports a brand new installer. Dubbed Sapphire, it has the feel of Anaconda (the installer for Fedora) sans the advanced features, and it’s much better than the pre-9.6 installer, which was based on the old Mandrake (now Mandriva) installer. Sapphire lacks support for LVM and RAID, and other than swap, you can only choose from ext3 and ext2 filesystems: No reiserfs, jfs, or any other journaling filesystem. GRUB (GRand Unified Bootloader) is the bootloader. No choice there.
Sapphire has two install modes – Express and Standard. Express mode is a mostly automated 3-step process, while Standard is a manual process, good if you want to control what’s installed. Installation can be carried out in three languages – English, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese. The option to enable/disable the firewall is presented during installation.
Multimedia/Internet: Of all the Linux desktops – with Gnome as the default desktop environment – that we have reviewed, Linpus has the most comprehensive set of applications installed by default. It is the Gnome equivalent of Sabayon, but with a much better organized menu.
Totem, Kaffeine, and MPlayer are your options for playing video files or media (Totem is the default). Because Linpus – like Fedora and Mandriva – defaults to using Fluendo’s Codeina Codec Installer service, they are unable to play commercial video or any multimedia content out of the box.
