HYBRYDE LINUX Concept
After the multi-environments experience, lets discover an amazing and artistic desktop adventure…
Olivier Larrieu has announced the release of Hybryde Linux 13.04, a rather unusual distribution which ships with 11 desktop user interfaces (Enlightenment, GNOME 2, GNOME 3, KDE, LXDE, Openbox, Unity, FVWM, Xfce, MATE and Cinnamon) and which provides a way to seamlessly switch between them without a need to restart the X window system.
This it done so via a default home-made desktop called HY-D-V1:
”After more than five months, we have a new concept: HY-D-V1 which is a new paradigm for the desktop. It works with web technologies. This new version, Hybryde ‘Fusion’, includes HY-D-V1 which has been created for artists and users who want to transform their desktop into an artistic tool and for those who want to play with graphic effects. That’s because Linux users are not merely professionals and because computers are not reserved to business use alone.”
