What is Point Linux?
Point Linux is a GNU/Linux distribution that aims to combine the power of Debian GNU/Linux with the productivity of MATE, the Gnome 2 desktop environment fork. Point Linux provides an easy to set up and use distribution for users, looking for a fast, stable and predictable desktop.
Debian under the hood
Point Linux is built on top of the popular Debian GNU/Linux operating system. However, being a desktop oriented distro, Point Linux has many things that make the desktop user life easier, such as sudo enabled by default or extended hardware support*. Point Linux also localizes applications during installation, giving you desktop in your native language.
Traditional look and feel
Point Linux uses the MATE desktop environment, trying to fully mimic the Gnome 2 look and feel and provide a comfortable desktop experience for the old school and corporate Linux users, migrating to the modern Debian platform. Point Linux comes with carefully selected minimal set of tools and desktop applications required to start using it to the full.
Point Linux comes with the Mozilla Firefox web browser and Mozilla Thunderbird mail client, bringing these two popular applications on your Debian desktop. Point Linux uses DuckDuckGo, the search engine that does not track your search results. You can easily install Google Chrome or Opera having non-free repositories enabled with a single package installation.
