Snowlinux is a set of Linux distributions based on Debian's latest stable release and featuring four different desktop environments.

snowlinux_gnomeSnowlinux is a set of Linux distributions based on Debian's latest stable release and featuring four different desktop environments - GNOME, KDE, LXDE and Xfce. It aims to be user-friendly, incorporating many useful tweaks and carefully selected software applications. The project also develops a separate, Ubuntu-based edition featuring the MATE (a GNOME 2 fork) desktop.

Due drastic changes with Gnome 3 and Unity, Snowlinux is keeping Gnome 2. Snowlinux 2 "Ice" comes with the GTK theme Snowlinux-Metal-Theme, the Icon set was set to Snowlinux-Metal-Theme-Icons and the system font is "Ubuntu" by default. Also present in this edition is an improved live-installer which detects country, offers keyboard variants and uses UUID in fstab.

It has installed a firewall called gufw. Apturl was ported from Ubuntu to Debian and it was made functional. To improve the difference between user and root terminal the terminal colors were introduced. To be more out-of-the-box OpenJDK 6 Java has been made availble in the default installation. Snowlinux 2 "Ice" comes with chromium-browser, icedove, rhythmbox, shotwell.
