Although there isn't still a stable version, Apricity OS seems to have a great future. This GNU/Linux distro intends to improve design, introducing a beautiful appearance with full functionalities and top performance. These last features are ensured thanks to be based on Arch Linux, one of the most complete Linux distributions in the market.
Apricity OS lets users choose among two flavours: GNOME 3.20 desktop environment, which can be used with up to 512 MB RAM and Cinnamon
To make it easier for beginners, it includes a series of tools and applications, such as Adobe Flash, Chrome and GNOME applications like the calendar, and others like FileZilla, LibreOffice, Rhythmbox, GIMP, PlayOnLinux and Steam. It uses Pacman manager and it also includes Pushbullet and ICE app to create web shortcuts on the desktop.
