ChaletOS - Windows Alternative Open Source OS

The name ChaletOS came from the style of mountain houses in Switzerland. The concept of these houses is similar to the concept that we had while we made this system: simplicity, beauty and recognizability. Since we want new users to feel at home, we hope this project will meet this goal.

We all know someone who tried to switch to Linux but was unsuccessful. The system that he tried was too different from what he was used to, there were too many new things and the old things were not where he expected. The goal of this project is to let anyone gets used to Linux. This system is not too different from Xubuntu, on which it is based, but ChaletOS has a style that everyone knows well, appealing simplicity and impressive speed. All this will let them fall in love with this system quickly. Because of its small hardware requirements, it will revive some old machines and refresh others, not so old. 

New LTS support, new kernel and new Software Center. But besides that, with what is ChaletOS so different from other distributions?

Themes are improved so that can work with GTK3 and GTK2 engine. Also, now they are more complete, and include details for many applications.

Icons are redesigned. We used Emerald icons and we redesigned them so they are more suitable for ChaletOS style.

Style Changer is rewritten and templates are made from scratch. Many community derived conkys styles are rewritten and adapted for ChaletOS.

Start Point is a new application that can help new users to start using ChaletOS or Linux. It contains a collection of video material, articles from websites and recommendations for different applications.
