What is Unit?

Unit is an emerging Linux distribution, developed following the concept of KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid), our philosophy consists of 3 simple concepts: simple, customizable and friendly to the community.

This is a project under development, we are currently designing Unit Desktop, an open-source Desktop Environment, geared to the Unit project.

Why do we create a new desktop environment?
Unit was created for all those “abandoned” users by Canonical, after announcing the abandonment of Unity 7.
No. Unit is not Unity 7, what we are designing is an easy and customizable hybrid desktop that can fit your needs / preferences. All choices on the desktop are not related to Canonical, Unit remains an independent project.

What kind of distribution will it be?
Linux is Linux, we have no sympathy for a particular distribution, so we will decide together what kind of distribution to create.

Why not from scratch?
The Linux world is vast and fully supported, creating a distribution from scratch not only means more development time but also less support, which comes out of our philosophy.

Which versions will be distributed?
One version will be released annually, every two years there will be an LTS version.
Each release will be distributed in 2 versions:
– Desktop
– Server

What distinguishes our server version from the others?
We aim at a server version with remote desktop management, so much more information will be released during design.
