Pinguy OS was a Linux distribution for x86-based personal computers. Pinguy OS is based on Ubuntu, which is a modified GNOME desktop environment designed for user-friendliness and ease of use. It has been discontinued since 2019, due to it not being financially viable.

General info

Pinguy OS was created to enhance Ubuntu's user-friendliness and functionality and was tailored towards users unfamiliar with Unix-like operating systems. The distribution included a variety of pre-installed software. Pinguy OS was also available in 32-bit and 64-bit versions and had a less demanding version for older machines.
