Roberto J. Dohnert informed us a few minutes ago that the OS4 12.5 Linux operating system was made available for download for both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms.

Being redesigned from the ground up to satisfy the needs of most PC users, OS4 12.5 is a major update to the open source Linux distribution developed by Roberto Dohnert.

OS4 12.5 comes packed with Wine and everything a user needs to install Windows games and apps without much hassle, as well as out-of-the-box multimedia playback backed by Audacious and Totem, and lots of codecs.

It is compatible with many commercial apps, such as Lotus Notes or Oracle Database products, and offers full support for Apple's HFS and HFS+ filesystems.

Powered by Linux kernel 3.2.0, OS4 12.5 incorporates the OpenBSD SSH server, ClamAV anti-virus, as well as Denyhosts for improved security.

OS4 12.5 also comes with AbiWord text editor, Gnumeric spreadsheet app, Evolution groupware suite, as well as the Google Chrome and the lightweight Midori web browser.

Last but not least, OS4 12.5 supports lots of Wi-Fi adapters and mobile broadband providers.

"Today we are pleased to announce the next generation of operating systems and the most advanced release of OS4 to date, OS4 12.5."

"OS4 12.5 has been designed from the ground up to satisfy the needs of casual PC users all the way to the professional user. It is available in 32 and 64 bit releases," said Roberto J. Dohnert in the official release announcement.
