Robolinux

Last Update: 2017-06-11 11:42 UTC


Robolinux is a user-friendly and intuitive operating system based on the latest stable release of Debian GNU/Linux. One of the project's more interesting features is the availability of a pre-configured virtual machine support pack with Windows XP or Windows 7 - a VirtualBox setup which allows the user to install and run the Windows operating system seamlessly alongside Robolinux. This is an optional add-on that must be purchased from the project's online store.

I am linux newbie and am trying various flavours.
Robolinux seemed good but asking subscribtion to install or even update the apps make Robolinux useless.
If a system cannot update apps which are free, what use is such system.

I am not happy for Robolinux agressive policity. I want to make a donation but free.
Now everything cost. Also sofware whitch are totally free on other distributions.
I can not understand why I must pay for installing bleachbit etc. Robolinux is reliable and
stable and it looks very good. I bought Stealth VM but changed Robolinux to another distro
which I can use without any fees.
