As you can see, it's interesting. GNU/Linux distro used in Venezuela, is getting back on the road to his Debian-11 based upgrade. And with a very nice and sober appearance, both with a dark theme and a light one, and a pack of equally striking icons. Although, most likely when it is released in stable form, it will include a wide range of wallpapers (wallpapers) and many more visual themes and icons.

Rebranding of Canaima GNU/Linux

In my personal case, I have taken advantage of the availability of your «Rebranding» to lower the visual aspect pack de Canaima 7 for XFCE environment, and when applied on the Respin Miracles based MX Linux with XFCE, it has been left as follows:

MilagrOS - Canaima Style 7 GNU/Linux - P1

MilagrOS - Canaima Style 7 GNU/Linux - P2

MilagrOS - Canaima Style 7 GNU/Linux - P3

MilagrOS - Canaima Style 7 GNU/Linux - P4

MilagrOS - Canaima Style 7 GNU/Linux - P5

MilagrOS - Canaima Style 7 GNU/Linux - P6

MilagrOS - Canaima Style 7 GNU/Linux - P7

Finally, as usual, we assume that the new version of the Canaima Operating System will allow to be launched more Desktop Environments, for example, MATE. Since, for now, it only allows you to choose and install two desktop environments, one intended for relatively new computers that have good resources, such as GNOME. And another intended for teams with limited resources such as XFCE. And furthermore, they will most likely include 32 Bit ISOs (i386/i586) for support for systems with very old architecture or low hardware resources (CPU/RAM).
