If you're seeing this, then Feren OS is about to or has already entered a development suspension. This development suspension will be in effect during the 14th of May, to 15th of June, once that period of time is over, Feren OS will resume development once more, with more exciting updates in the works for Feren OS, outside of the 18.04 Upgrade. This also affects Phoenix Linux development, as this time will be taken to revise and tackle the British GCSEs. Good Luck, Year 11s.
The Feren OS Dev
You're seeing this right, you can now upgrade early to Ubuntu 18.04 on Feren OS, with the WIP Upgrade Script. Since this is a WIP, however, a lot of theming and some software and so on will not be available and/or will be broken.
Please do not do this on your daily driver, unless you know how to recover from the loss of the Cinnamon Desktop Environment, as this script is still WIP, and has only been tested by me on AMD and Intel Hardware, and so I do not know if the OS or Cinnamon will break on other hardware. If it does, try to comment down below the contents of your HOME FOLDER/.xsession-errors on that system (the file is hidden), so that I can try and find the cause and the solution to it.
As The Feren OS Dev, I always strive to find ways to improve the core design and usability of Feren OS to make it one of the best, and one of the ways I've conveniently found of recent days is exploring methods to push the Feren Brand, and that is why, today, I'm proud to announce Feren OS Blue, the newest addition to the Feren OS Family.
It's that time of the year again, y'know, the end of the year... Anyways, time to recap what happened feren-wise. Though, I can tell you now, boy was this a good year for feren OS so far.
Yep, the moment I got word that Linux Mint dropped their Sylvia ISO onto their Download Servers, under the "Stable" folder, I started working on the seamless update from the ISO's base of Mint Sonya, to the new base of Mint Sylvia (18.2 => 18.3). To be honest, for a first try at doing this (all previous Mint Updates came as feren OS Releases), the update process is seamless, and very easy.
For a newbie to switching to feren OS, the requirement of taking data to somewhere else, before installing feren OS over Windows, then restoring the data and settings, that is quite the chore, isn't it? Well, now you don't have to do that anymore. Now, say hello to feren OS to/from Windows Transfer Tool.
It's great making something for the community that might become quite big and remain for a very long time to continue serving the community and helping Linux as a result.
