I've been married for a while now to what I consider to be one of the best distros in space GNU / Linux. I speak particularly of Arch Linux, basically it has accompanied me in the last 3 years continuously without doing a reinstallation of the system during that time, a fact that has resulted in joys of usability, flexibility and complete stability.
Many users will find it somewhat uncomfortable to use Arch Linux As a desktop system, I have given myself the task of looking for a distro that I considered at the time a good option for the desktop user. So in an authoritative way I went to see what happened with Trisquel Gnu linux proceeding to download it and execute it in livecd mode, finding myself with a pleasant surprise compared to previous versions.
The Navigator Abrowser In its version 19.0, it has a certain sobriety and a lot of stability, characteristics that are undoubtedly appreciated when spending hours in front of the PC, lazy continuously watching videos or on social networks.
By default the pre-installed multi-protocol client is Pidgin 2.10.3 Widely known client who will undoubtedly meet practically all the requirements regarding this matter.
Like any distribution based on GNOME It has other well-known applications among which are:
- Rythembox 2.6 (music player)
- Brasero 3.4.1 (Disc Burner)
- Gimp (2.6.12) Image Editor
- LibreOffice 188.8.131.52 (office suite)
Totem 3.0.1 (Video Player)
Taking into account that all the pre-installed applications despite being quite basic and common that is pre-installed in most of the distros, it is noteworthy that all from players to video editors work out of the box, which provides a quite acceptable experience for the user looking for a stable platform for their daily work, with the addition of being completely free according to what is recommended by the Free Software Foundation.
