    ubuntuDDE

    hi

    I know that this is not an official flavor but anyone know or think it will be?

    Is it just as safe to use as vanilla ubuntu? I know that there where issues around deepin linux and regarding data collection, as dde is just the DE with ubuntu at the back end, would it be just as safe or does having a DE that is not official pose a security risk?

    thx

    I find an unofficial release here. I don't know the intentions of the developers for UbuntuDDE regarding any official status. Support would have come from their community. They offer a checksum for the download and I don't see any apparent security risks.

    They seem to have a decent amount of exposure (Deepin) on GitHub

    Which is interesting, I thought someone had gotten GitHub blocked in China.

    If you're feeling suspicious, you're free to audit the code.

    We can read more about UbuntuDDE here,

    I though this comment reassuring

    Unlike Deepin Linux, UbuntuDDE doesn’t use Deepin Appstore. It uses Ubuntu Software Center instead. This should be a good news if you are spooked by the spyware labeling of Wuhan-based Deepin Linux.

    They need to rename it to Ubunt-DuDE. (Deepin-Ubuntu Desktop Environment)
