BlendOS 3 Bhatura now supports 7 desktop environments, including GNOME, KDE Plasma, Cinnamon, XFCE, Deepin, MATE and LXQt. You can switch between desktop environments easily and instantaneously with system track.
We could really call BlendOS a blend of Android including from Aurora Store or F-Droid and Linux Apps from 9 different linux distros including Arch, AlmaLinux 9, Crystal Linux, Debian, Fedora 38, Kali Linux (rolling), Neurodebian Bookworm, Rocky Linux, Ubuntu 22.04, Ubuntu 23.04 and 7 different desktop environments including GNOME, KDE Plasma, Cinnamon, XFCE, Deepin, MATE and LXQt.
When you are a dedicated Linux user and come across the news such as the recent announcement that RedHat will be restricting RHEL source code to only CentOS Stream, a distro such as BlendOS comes as a welcome alternative, where you have 9 different linux distros at your finger tips to continue your work without panicing to having to migrate to a fresh new linux distro.
BlendOS also caters to yet another problem faced by majority of the RHEL based linux users, which is a trusted way to be able to upgrade your OS on the stop, without having to backup data and do a fresh install.
Unlike traditional Linux distributions, blendOS uses ISOs for updates, with your system being rebuilt on an update. Thanks to zsync, the update download size usually hovers around 10-100 MiBs, contrary to what you might have assumed. Updates are downloaded in the background, and on the next boot, replace the current root filesystem while keeping any custom system packages you install
