Being an Indian, I believe that Linux is not yet in local culture yet. But, looking at Microsoft Windows being at core of almost anything is a bit mess as it is not yet INDIAN friendly due to lack of support for Indian languages to make it a thing amongst the non – English speakers of India. Hamara Linux is actually Indians’ Linux : for Indians, by Indians. No Offence 🙂
Debian at core, Hamara Linux offers MATE Desktop Environment and is completely open source and availble for x86_64, i686, and armhf platforms. Installation process is quite simple and fast.. The Distribution is quite clean and snappy at feel. The layout is crisp and the colours used are a bit overpowering but amiable.
The distribution bundles support for Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Oriya, Punjabi, Sinhalese, Tamil and Telugu mostly used in India. Making it easier for such user to get on board.
The distribution performed well as per my expectations, the only exception being hardware compatibility with WiFi card : rtl8723de. 🙁
I didn’t face any other issues on my end. The Linux Distribution is a must try. The Project is a great start but has to get better and bigger with changes from time to time.
The distribution is ranked at 256 ( with 26 hits per day ) on Distrowatch.com
