I made a little bet with myself last night. If I finished work early, I was going to use the time to fix a couple of nagging issues with a new version of Simplicity that I’ve been working on and release it. Normally I finish at 5:30pm. Today I finished at 1pm.
Which is why I am releasing an Alpha of Simplicity Linux Gaming Edition. It comes with Steam, Vortex Cloud Gaming and OBS. I’ve been using it a lot lately, and today played Brawlhalla using Proton on this version. There are still a few issues with it, hence it being released as an Alpha rather than a Beta.
I’m also releasing Simplicity Linux Base 20.1 Alpha. Base is the version I build on and modify to create the other versions. However, recently I’ve been using it as my daily desktop and have found that it works pretty well. So I decided to release it.
You might also notice that I’m using BitBucket to store the ISOs. I’m not abandoning SourceForge, instead I am trying BitBucket and comparing them. I thought an Alpha release was a fairly safe way of trying it out and comparing features.
Happy Christmas to everyone and I hope you enjoy these releases.
