DistroWatch.com: Robolinux


Last Update: 2017-08-26 01:22 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.

A high quality distribution. Ideal for small business operating system and Windows
replacement. Stable and reliable. The mate desktop is really good-looking and clear.
The dark theme is also very good and does not tire my eyes as much as the white theme.
Through Stealh VM you can access and install Windows programs. I understand that it is
not free because its development has taken the time and resources. I have used Robolinux
a half year without any problems. I can recommend it warmly.

This distribution made my life easier because I needed a few Windows programs in my
daily work. Through Stealth VM and Windows XP programs are really easy and fast to use.
The $10 price is really low. The acquisition of Stealth VM has paid itself many times back.
Robolinux has been very stable to use. I'm using the xfce version. The only downside is
Robolinux aggressive and commercial marketing policy. Somehow it feels that it's
development has not yet found the right path.

I have tried cinnamon and mate versions. The both are stable and reliable. They are also
good-looking with dark theme. Windows programs are really easy to access via Stealth VM.
I still use Windows XP and I have not had any malware or viruses on my computer for two
years. I recommend Robolinux warmly.
