  1. a version with cinnamon desktop please. Can you add ability to make an iso file of the working system like mxlinux also.

    • Ian; you can very easily download and install the Cinnamon desktop environment within SparkyLinux by just going to the APTus App Center feature and then going to Desktop and download Cinnamon from there. Once it’s installed; just logout and switch your desktop environment option to Cinnamon before logging back in.

    • Yes, me too , I would like to have WINE included in KDE and others desktops as well…

      thank you for good work

  2. Me entusiasma esta Distro en KDE PLASMA, veloz, amigable y elegante, el unico problema que le encuentro es que pide constantemente ir a Herramienta de ACTUALIZACION, cuando lo autorizas DESAPARECE!!! y en nuevo inicio nuevamente pide ir a la HERRAMIENTA DE ACTUALIZACION una vez que lo autorizas vuelve a desaparecer repitiendo el cartel en cada inicio! Saludos desde Buenos Aires Argentina.
