RebornOS is a distribution that has been recommended to my quite a bit as of late but it wasn’t until today that I finally got round to it. It’s based an Arch Linux and grants the user a choice of a number of different desktops to choose from all inside a single ISO. It achieves this by using a modified version of the Cnchi installer. Some of these desktops include Deepin, GNOME, KDE and more. As well as being able to choose which desktop you would like implement you also get a choice of installing additional applications and packages before you’ve committed your install to disk.
As you can see in the video above I decided to go for KDE. Once it was fully installed which took around 10 minutes I was greeted with a very vanilla setup of the Plasma desktop. After I’d checked out the overall look and feel of this distribution I gave KDE a fresh lick of paint with a new global theme and matched it with it’s Kvantum counterpart. One of the features I appreciated the most was the ability to install additional desktops post install via the RebornOS Fire application. To test this out I installed LXQt and it was complete in barely a minute!
