Deep­inDE

Linux Format - - Perfect Your Desktop -

The Deepin desktop is part of the Deepin dis­tro. It’s based on HTML5 and We­bKit, and uses a mix of QML and Go for its com­po­nents. Be­sides the desktop it­self, no­table home­brewed Deepin com­po­nents in­clude the ap­pli­ca­tion launcher, dock and con­trol cen­tre. The Deepin desktop tries to repli­cate the Mac OS X, and has a clean and clut­ter-free in­ter­face with noth­ing ex­cept the dock at the bot­tom of the screen.

Deepin has con­fig­urable hot cor­ners that by de­fault en­able you to ac­cess the ap­pli­ca­tions menu and the con­trol panel. From here, you can man­age all as­pects of the desktop in­clud­ing the boot man­ager. It isn’t yet of­fi­cially sup­ported by any other dis­tri­bu­tion, but you can fetch it via third­party repos­i­to­ries for your dis­tri­bu­tion.
