Simplicity Linux 16.04 is distributed in three main editions, namely Desktop, X, and Mini. The distribution has been in development for the past three months, since February, when it was initially released as Simplicity Linux 16.01.
Since then, the development team behind the Simplicity Linux project has managed to seed Alpha and Beta builds to early adopters and public beta testers who volunteered to help them polish the final release of the operating system before it hit the streets, which happened on May 2, 2016, after a small delay.
Being based on the excellent and lightweight LXPup GNU/Linux distribution, and built around the LXDE desktop environment, Simplicity Linux 16.04 is powered by a kernel from the 4.0 series (Linux 4.0.4) on the Desktop and Mini editions, and Linux kernel 4.4.5 LTS on the X flavor, which is the experimental branch of the OS, where all the bleeding-edge stuff happens before it lands in the more stable Desktop and Mini editions.
