MakuluLinux LinDoz is built on our new Debian hybrid 2021 Base and Designed on a heavily modified Gnome Framework. Designed to make the user transition from Windows to Linux Easier and more comfortable while still retaining its Linux roots has been quite a challenge, and one we focused heavily on 2 Fronts ( Keep a familiar “Windows like” look, but push the Linux experience ). With all New Gui’s and Features to make the User experience easier, using the new LinDoz is a breeze and feels very comfortable.
LinDoz has started to shift and move away from simply being a Windows Clone, We wanted to give it an identity of its own while still retaining that ”almost windows like” look. Its been a challenge to achieve this, however I Think we are on the right path to reach that goal. The new LinDoz now sports 12 themes, These can easily be switched on the fly Thanx to our new Theme selector we designed. It can not only change the GTK Theme, but also transforms the whole desktop with cursors, window borders and such to fit the selected Theme.
With the move from cinnamon framework to a Gnome Framework it has brought many new features to the LinDoz operating system, while the default front End Gnome interface is loved by some and hated by others and quite often criticized for its heavy resource hogging, the backend of gnome is extremely powerful and feature rich, it is this backend that LinDoz is built on. We have spent much time tweaking the OS to be speedy, feel zippy and not be so resource intensive. Using the backend of Gnome Framework also brings out of the box features like screen / file share, access to online accounts like Facebook, Google and Microsoft directly. We have also implemented Touch friendly features, Makulu LinDoz now fully supports Touch screen devices like Tablets with Full screen Gesture support out of the Box. Of Course with Building LinDoz onto the new Gnome Hybrid base also means it has full extension support, You can now add extensions to LinDoz straight from the Gnome extension website, where you will find thousands of extensions available and ready to use. We have included a variety of extensions that are preinstalled to help with day to day tasks like working with workspaces, plugin in external flash drives, Weather, and Numlock/Capslock options.
