A standardized, open-source, easy-to-use, lightweight, powerful desktop operating system.
We've designed InspireOS from the ground up to be the best operating system for newcomers to development.
InspireOS uses the lightweight and fast XFCE desktop environment, which means it takes less memory and resources to run - leaving more for the work you're doing, and ensuring smooth performance even on old hardware.
The graphical desktop has been customized to be as intuitive and familiar as possible. It mimics the standard Windows desktop, including the start menu, taskbar, system tray, notifications center, calendar, and show desktop button.
The InspireKit is bundled with InspireOS out of the box. On first login, the kit follows the welcome window, letting you instantly set up your new machine to your liking with no delay. Build tools, containers, databases, and more are just a click away.
InspireOS is based on the latest version of Ubuntu, by Canonical, which guarantees frequent security updates and the latest packages, all built on a solid Debian foundation.
InspireOS is entirely open-source, which means it's free to download, edit, share, redistribute, and repackage the code. We welcome collaboration with the wider community of coders.
Note: The default session username is cs, and the password is cs.
Plug the USB into your computer, and boot into it (you may need to configure the BIOS to allow this). When the menu appears, use the Arrow Keys and Enter to select the Installation option. (If InspireKit launches at this point, feel free to close it) Then, proceed through the steps of the System Installer to install the Operating System.
After the installer has completed, reboot and remove the USB before the computer starts up again.
Note that you may be asked to configure Bluetooth settings after login. To do this, launch blueman-services from the terminal, and configure the download folder from the GUI that appears.
