netOS 10.65 Released

Today we are pleased to announce the release of netOS 10.65. netOS 10.65 is the emerging standard in enterprise desktop Linux computing in both businesses and in schools.  netOS for Education is targeted at K-12 installations, while netOS 10.65 for Enterprise is targeted at businesses and institutes of higher learning.

With netOS 10.65 we worked on several different aspects of the operating system.  We worked on security, flexibility and usability.  netOS 10.65 runs on a much wider variety of hardware, runs a much wider variety of peripherals and runs on much more enterprise class hardware.

Current customers can download the new release from the digital locker

Some of the new features that are included netOS 10.65 are:

Runs on the 16.04 LTS base

1.  Unity and GNOME hybrid Image.  Some of our customers have come from Ubuntu and Unity, we now feature the full Unity desktop so all of your custom dash lenses will work on netOS now, also applications that you wrote for Ubuntu utilizing their UI style such as the SDI elements, dash and HUD integration will work unmodified.  For those of that dislike Unity, you can choose GNOME from the login manager

2.  Canonical compatibility - Any Canonical specific services you deploy are 100% compatible with netOS 10.65.  Landscape and SNAP packages will work unmodified.

3. RHEL compatibility.  netOS 10.65 can host YUM repositories and with RPM built in all RPM packages will install.  Compatibility is for RHEL 6.5/7.x

4. .NET Core - netOS is the ONLY enterprise Linux distribution that has full support for .NET Core, our competitors only have limited support.

5.  MS SQL Server support - netOS fully supports SQL Server on Linux.  This includes development and deployment.

6. LibreOffice 5.2.5
