Trisquel GNU / Linux is one of the few approved operating systems and listing under “Free GNU / Linux Distributions” by the Free Software Foundation. Indeed, Trisquel is a 100% free operating system which contains only free software with a Linux-free kernel.
Recently, after more than two years of development, a new version, Trisquel 9.0 “Etiona”, was released with Long Term Support (LTS) for home users, small businesses and educational centers.
Trisquel GNU / Linux 9.0 is based on Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS with all proprietary software and firmware removed from the codebase, and all packages updated with long term support updates and security fixes.
Since Trisquel has “Abrowser” as the default web browser, it now includes all of the latest updates from Mozilla Firefox upstream. In addition, Trisquel 9.0 also added backports to provide extensive hardware support, the latest software such as LibreOffice and other utilities.
Trisquel is available in different flavors with different office environments. For example, if you want a classic desktop environment, you can go for Trisquel with MATE, which is a fork of GNOME 2.x and also a default desktop for Trisquel.
If you want a resource-intensive desktop for your old machines and netbooks, Trisquel Mini with the LXDE desktop environment is perfect for you. But if you are looking for a desktop with a modern look and highly customizable, you can choose the Triskel edition with KDE plasma.
Trisquel also offers two other editions such as the NetInstall images for servers and advanced users, and the Sugar TOAST with Sugar learning platform for children.
Finally, if you want to try the new Trisquel 9.0 right away, get the ISO image of the desired edition from the download page. All editions are available in 32-bit and 64-bit versions.
With the release of Trisquel 9.0 LTS Etiona, the development team has now started working on the next version 10, starting with a codename. You can also join the forum to help you choose a code name for v10.0.
