While Endless OS is a Linux-based operating system with simplified and streamlined experience that runs on its own customized desktop environment forked from GNOME 3.
And Endless OS uniqueness stems from its use of a read-only root file system managed by OSTree with app bundles overlaid on top, instead of employing a traditional Linux package management system.
