HoleOS is a Linux distribution based on Ubuntu which has got three different editions; HoleOS for everyday use, HoleOScompact for a cleaned version, and HoleOSenterprise for work although in HoleOSalpha there is just one edition (HoleOS).
There isn't any official release period for the system but June 16 is the birthday of HoleOS and Peaches released two versions on that day in 2019 and 2020.
HoleOS is developed by Peaches Technology and the installer was created by Krisztián Kendek who made Systemback.
The word "hole" is from the posy of the OS, "A hole in the OS history". As Benjamin Stonawski, the CEO of Peaches Technology said: "That means HoleOS is a completely different OS than their competetors, I mean that would be the goal".
History[edit | edit source]
HoleOS's first version, HoleOS 0.0.1 was released on June 16, 2019 and it wasn't available for anyone; it was a private release for creating the "core" for HoleOSalpha. That version included nothing just some minimal changes in the GUI.
On February 9, 2020 HoleOS 0.1.1 was made and on April 13, 2020 the first public release, HoleOS 0.1.3.1 was available. That public release is an LTS (Long Time Supported) release but Peaches didn't give any information about when it will be updated.
On April 17, 2020 Peaches Technology joined to the Open Invention Network which enables freedom of action for Peaches and HoleOS through their patent non-aggression cross-license in the “Linux System,” which defines the commitment.
On June 16, 2020 HoleOS 0.2.1 was announced and released, that included tons of bug fixes and removed the Gdebi Package Manager and replaced with Sblive Package Manager which can manage HoleOS's installer file system.
