Brian Manderville proudly announced a couple of days ago on Twitter that the development for the upcoming Descent|OS 4.0 Linux operating system has started.

The big news is that the developer decided to drop the Ubuntu operating system and build the Descent|OS 4.0 distribution based on the Debian Sid Linux operating system.

Another interesting fact about Descent|OS 4.0 is that it will be shipped with up-to-date Compiz packages in order to support Steam for Linux.

A new Software Center will be provided, inspired by and based on Linux Deepin’s software center application, but it will be more Debian compatible.

Even if Chromium will remain the default Internet navigator, due to popular demand, the powerful Mozilla Firefox web browser will be added in the default software repositories.
