deepin

Last Update: 2022-09-05 04:59 UTC


deepin (formerly, Deepin, Linux Deepin, Hiweed GNU/Linux) is a Debian-based distribution (it was Ubuntu-based until version 15 released in late 2015) that aims to provide an elegant, user-friendly and reliable operating system. It does not only include the best the open source world has to offer, but it has also created its own desktop environment called DDE or Deepin Desktop Environment which is based on the Qt 5 toolkit. Deepin focuses much of its attention on intuitive design. Its home-grown applications, like Deepin Software Centre, DMusic and DPlayer are tailored to the average user. Being easy to install and use, deepin can be a good Windows alternative for office and home use.

For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "plasma-desktop" package and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

I would give Deepin almost a full mark if I rated Deepin a half year ago. I feel that Deepin is heading in the wrong direction with 20.x. I used its 5.11 version and enjoyed it for its related fast boot time in addition to its beautiful UI.

It is quite slow with to boot its current release. I just get a low-end Asua Windows 11 laptop with 4G memory and Intel Celeron 1.10GHz. I start both my daily drive PC (Intel i5-3470S CPU @ 2.90GHz) with Deepin and this laptop at the same time. I have already started using a browser to surface the internet on the laptop while Deepin is still in the boot process.

A few weeks ago, I also experienced a system crush when I run some heavy applications.

Furthermore, I don't know why the Deepin team decided to add the most-hated software such as 360 Browser to the app store.

The only thing left for me is its pretty face for now.

Excellent distro, polished, fast and ever works in the right way. Congrats to all Deepin team. I am working with Deepin in my laptop, and everything is going so good. In my opinion is one of the best Linux distro. All the time is growing up. Can´t wait to install Deepin 23, looks like a big step forward. I recommend Deepin to everyone, special for new Linux user. Deepin is so easy to install and set it. Is one of the best option into Debian distros, and one of the best desktop. When you install it you have a fully distro to work for.

A very good Distro. I installed Deepin 20.6 recently. The installer is simple to use but still
provides all the options needed, like "automatic" vs. manual installation, choosing different file systems, mount points etc. Thus, I would rate the installer 10/10.
The installation itself went smooth. All applications work as expected. The GUI is well very well done, good looking icons, the desktop is fast and easy to adjust to the user´s need.
For those who may not like the look of LibreOffice, there is an easy solution: simply
install the package "libreoffice-gtk3" and the problem has been solved.
After running "spectre-meltdown-checker" everything is on "green", and thus
no obvious security risk [no red]. I installed kernel 5.10.36-amd64 and 5.10.101-amd64. Both
work great. The use of Debian, as a rock solid foundation, and Deepin user interface, makes a perfect combination.
Thank you Deepin team. Keep up the good job! Thank you.
