Project Introduction


deepin is an elegant, easy to use and reliable desktop operating system released by Deepin Technology Co., Ltd. Featured applications are preinstalled in deepin. It caters to a variety of recreational activities while also fulfilling your daily needs. With continually improved and perfected functions, we believe deepin will be loved and used by more and more users.

The official release of Deepin 12.12 will feature a new desktop environment. This desktop environment has been developed by the Deepin team and is designed to be lightweight, beautiful and stable. The new desktop environment uses Compiz as the default window manager.

The System Settings module has been completely rewritten and will no longer utilize the Gnome Control Center. Instead, it will adopt the Deepin UI library for its interface. The initial versions of the Deepin music and video players are also based on this library. The latest version of the Deep screenshot tool also uses the Deepin UI library.

The new desktop environment will be an exciting change not only for the Deepin community but also for the rest of the operating system community. The international community will also see a desktop environment with a unique concept and a return to user action, where everything becomes familiar.
