Downloads for our mainline releases, these releases target desktop devices with adequate performance, storage, and Internet accessibility.
KDE (Plasma Desktop) provides an extensive set of functionality with virtually unlimited amount of customizable settings, and comes complete with an elegant interface. With a strong set of utilities, games, and tools, KDE is quite suitable for day-to-day desktop computing with a refreshing sense of aesthetic.
GNOME is a desktop environment with a strong emphasis on human interactivity, multilingual support, and accessibility. Designed as a desktop for humanity, GNOME provides users with a minimal yet elegant interface for those who may understand its innovative logic in desktop computing.
XFCE, like its logo, is a quick and smart little rat on your desktop. This is a desktop with rich customizability, responsive interface, and a small footprint. XFCE can run very quick even on older machines while providing a complete desktop experience, making it a near perfect choice for performance constrained devices.
MATE is a desktop environment that sticks to the traditions - in which the developers of this particular desktop environment believe. Being a fork of GNOME 2, MATE never has been a desktop of the past during its development history. MATE continuously updates itself to the newest technologies while tries its best to provide users with a familiar desktop experience.
Cinnamon was initially a fork of GNOME Shell in an effor to provide a traditional interface suitable for keyboard and mouse. Cinnamon builds upon GNOME's technical frameworks and applications, preserving the same ease of use in mind, while providing more customizability.
LXDE, or Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment in full is a lightweight desktop environment with a seemingly microscopic memory footprint. This is one of the better choices to go for on a older PC or low performance device. LXDE is extremely customizable, a perfect choice for those looking for a full desktop environment while wanting to keep in control of every aspect of their desktop.
While AOSC OS focuses itself in providing complete and refined desktop experience in all other variants, we understand that there are those who prefers all choices remained on their hands. The Base variant provides a minimal set of features, just enough for you to get started. Base is still a pre-configured variant - like AOSC OS should be - this is also suitable for performance constrained devices like say, a Raspberry Pi board; or simply drop it on your server and go from there. Base is also available as a Docker image.
BuildKit is essentially a non-bootable AOSC OS Base with full development support. This particular variant of AOSC OS comes with Autobuild3 and ABBS so you can jump right into AOSC OS packaging, whether it be a contribution to our official ABBS tree, or something you have decided to build on your own. BuildKit is also available as a Docker image.
Downloads for our Retro releases, these releases target older and "ancient" hardware with limited performance and storage support. These releases are not frequently updated but will receive security and bug-fix updates.
