Chapeau

Last Update: 2018-03-24 02:02 UTC


Chapeau is a high-performance, cutting-edge operating system built from the GNU/Linux distribution Fedora Workstation with the GNOME desktop environment. In comparison to Fedora, Chapeau adopts a more relaxed approach to software licences and is intended to be just as useful for advanced users as it is easy for those new to using a Linux system. There is built-in access to third-party software and sources repositories not included in Fedora such as RPMFusion, DropBox, Steam, Adobe Flash and Oracle VirtualBox. Chapeau also includes pre-installed core packages to make the installation of new kernel modules pain-free, built-in remote and virtual system management tools, a selection of maintenance tools that come in especially handy when running Chapeau's live image on a DVD or USB drive to analyse and fix broken systems.

The absolute best distro for regular users who just want a O/S that works out of the box for music, video, office - everything a regular Joe wants without any need for command line interaction.

Its Fedora. But without the work. Everything is there already. Wine, VLC, PlayOnLinux,. Steam, multi-media codecs. It couldn't get any easier. If you like Fedora 24. You'll love Chapeau 24.
