After almost 3 months in the waiting, Deepin 20 Beta has been quietly released, as against the original scheduled January 2020 release date.
While Deepin is perhaps one of the most beautiful Linux distro, with the beta ISO (UOS) of the upcoming major version of the desktop environment bringing a new interactive experience.
Besides the unified design for the desktop environment and applications, the underlying kernel and repository have also been upgraded to Kernel 5.3 and Debian 10 respectively.
And Deepin popularity has been on the rise this month, with the beta release of UbuntuDDE, a new Remix Linux distribution that features Ubuntu 20.04 and Deepin Desktop Environment (DDE), which is certainly an exciting development to watch.
What's new in Deepin 20 Beta?
Deepin 20 Beta comes with a unified design style, with redesigned desktop environment and applications, bringing a new interactive experience.
The underlying repository and kernel too are upgraded to Debian 10 and Kernel 5.3 respectively, with the optimized system offering a richer application ecosystem and better system security and stability.
Also, DDE introduces a fashionable graphical interface, with natural animation effects, coupled with exquisite multi-tasking view, and colorful icons, that ensure an exciting user experience. What's more, there are even new applications available for users.
How to Download and Install Deepin 20 Beta?
As Deepin Linux is an open source desktop environment developed for common use, it is available FREE for everyone to download, modify, distribute and use.
Deepin 20 Beta can be downloaded from the official site, however, you should bear in mind that this is a new beta (with likely some bugs), so don’t download and install it on your main production system.
The recommended course of action is probably to download and install it on a secondary system, if you really want to give it a spin.
