Myah OS 3.0 Box Announced by Jeremiah Cheatham

A full-fledged operating system with a light desktop environment

Myah OS 3.0 Box, a Linux distribution that's built around LXDE (Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment), was released, as announced by Jeremiah Cheatham. The "Box" was created with the aim to provide a fully functional operating system built around a light desktop environment.

If you've used the previous version of Myah OS, Mouse Pro, you will notice that most of the applications are the same as in the aforementioned release. A couple of applications worth mentioning are Blender and Inkscape. With the first one, you can create 3D models and animations while with the latter you can make vector images and more.

If you're wondering why the dubbing Mouse Pro was chosen for the previous edition of Myah OS, you should know that it was named this way after the mascot of Xfce, which was used as the main desktop environment. Mouse Pro was released on June 1, this year.

Jeremiah Cheatham said in the official release announcement: "It's important to note that Box is not meant to be a light system. Instead, it's meant to be a fully functional system built around a light desktop. There are many extremely light Linux systems out there already like DSL and Slax. Myah OS 3.0 Box is for people who want a full blown system built around a light desktop. Thanks to all those who tried Mouse Pro and made use of the forum. There were issues found in the auto detection of the sound and video. Both have been resolved. There was also a lot of request for better wi-fi support and Box has that as well. So thanks to all those who took the time to use the forum. It has been used to make Myah OS even better."
