EasyOS 3.1: What’s New?

One of the biggest changes has to do with the hierarchy of folders. The client’s directory has been changed to the /home directory and the /home directory has changed to the new /files. Apps are able to run with root privileges only as users and groups.

With the new changes to the directory hierarchy As a result of the changes to the directory hierarchy, the OS now offers enhanced video configurability as well as hardware profiling. The new RDP, VNC, and SSH servers and clients are also accessible through the packages manager.

The developer BarryK states that a lot of emphases is placed on booting EasyOS by using USB sticks to various computers. With the help of hardware profiling, the OS will be able to retain the audio and video, and Bluetooth configurations you have set when you boot using that identical USB every time.

There’s also a brand new “Fix broken video” option in the boot menu. This will resolve an issue where no video was displayed at the boot. In addition, Chrome is now available in the form of an SFS (SquashFS) file. You can click the icon for sfsget on the desktop to download it. Chrome SFS is running in a container rather than being displayed on the desktop by the user, thus ensuring greater security.
