Robolinux has released its 2nd 2023 update to its 3 new highly stable R12 rolling release versions. You will notice new login and grub boot splash screens.
It should also be noted that all 3 Robolinux Desktop versions come with the LibreWolf browser which has the highest privacy!
LibreWolf is a fork of Firefox so you can quickly import and use your existing Firefox data files!
The Legacy Bios isos only work in VM's & Non UEFI PC's.
If your machine supports legacy BIOS it is recommended as UEFI firmware adds up to an extra minute of boot up time.
R12.10 comes with hundreds of improvements, security and application updates
The Robolinux R12 rolling release LTS versions were built and tested over the course of nine months starting out with the 20.04 code base and then 22.04 kernels, compilers and libraries. The current Robolinux R12 rolling release comes with the newest 5.15 Linux kernel, gcc9 C compilers, libraries and new applications while also providing highly stable LTS software packages simultaneously. This gives Robolinux users access to the Debian & Ubuntu Developers' monthly OS improvements such as faster boot up and shutdown speeds along with a continuous path to the most current hardware support and access to installing and using the newest software applications along with the ability to install the 20.04 LTS stable software as well. We call this the best of both worlds! If you find any issues please report them to Robolinux via our website contact webpage: https://robolinux.org/contact-us.html
