Bauh: News from the alternative Software Store for Linux

If you are one of the thousands of faithful and frequent readers of our website, you most likely know that whoever writes this post often frequently mentions the use of Desktop software stores like GNOME Software and Discover. And above all, from a personal Respin with XFCE based on MX Linux 23 (Base Debian 12) called Miracles, which is mainly focused on educational and experimental use on modern equipment with extensive hardware resources. However, there are usually many desktop software stores, which can range from the classic Synaptic, which comes by default in many Mother Distributions; even the little known and independent Outlet App, which used to come installed by default in some small projects of derived Distros and personal Respines.

But, given that this project has been archived since October 2023, other alternatives, just as suitable and functional as the Bauh Software Store, have come to be integrated into interesting derivative Distro projects such as Ropes. GNU/Linux Distro project of Spanish origin based on Debian 12, which by the way, I have been using for days, with a very good impression thanks to the fact that it has worked very well for me on old computers with low hardware resources (2-core CPU and 2 GB RAM). However, as this project is avant-garde (for modern technologies) it is also efficient for modern computers with vast hardware resources. And since it uses Bauh by default, today I bring you the news of said Desktop App for Linux.
