PC maker Haleron is pushing a new Linux-based operating system that the company claims will be able to run Linux, Windows, and Google Android applications. it’s based on SUSE Linux, but it includes WINE out of the box, which should help it run some, but not all Windows apps. it also includes software that should let you run applications designed for Google’s mobile phone operating system.

I first caught wind of the project last week, and now the OS is available for download. (You’ll need to register for a free account to start the download).

The netbook version of the operating system is a 420MB download. There’s also a desktop version. Installation is a bit tricky. Haleron suggests using the instructions from PenDrive Linux to format a USB flash drive and copy the installers to the USB stick.

I haven’t had a chance to test Ocean OS yet. Have you? What do you think? Let us know in the comments.

  1. downloaded the iso, burned a cd, cant wait to try it 😀

    P.S. can anyone give a reason why this wouldnt be awesome on halereron’s ilet mini? if anyone has seen it done i would love to see it thx:)

    1. i went to the site, registered, and it still will not let me download. The page for downloads has 0 links for downloads. I tried to contact Haleron via their contact form, and it would not work, as the captcha image did not display. Looks like a broken product and website to me. Which is a pity as I wanted to try it out. Does anyone have OceanOS available on BitTorrent?

  2. Looks like the netbook os will not be available for download until the 20th.
    Kinda related, is Haleron the group that made Linspire?
