How To Use Rufus To Install Aurora OS

Aurora is a Linux distribution based on Ubuntu. Much to my amusement, this operating system is recently proposed to replace Google softwares for Huawei devices, due to the fact of its ongoing friction with the US government, who now added Huawei to the Entity List, yikes. Aurora OS was born as Ebuntu, of course, an Ubuntu-based distro simply for ASUS Eee PC. Then in 2010, it was renamed as Aurora OS, to divert from its original path and become an open Linux distro for any personal computers and laptops with a user-friendly desktop environment. Going back to Huawei back-up plan B, it is now experimenting with its chances with Aurora, a Sailfish fork, and Russian-made OS instead of developing their own. If you're interested in installing Aurora OS, you can install it by using Rufus. There are more details available on their website.

Rufus Linux

Aurora OS was originally an OS for netbooks, was of course based on Ubuntu. It works as an out-of-the-box including JAVA, VLC, and Flash with its Asus Eee PC versions and comes with its own designed kernel that is tuned to Eee hardware. Surprisingly it can run its bootable SD card or flash drive just using UNetbootin. An integration Jupiter utility kit where you can control ACPI event or toggle some devices via Eee switch on/off. If we trace Aurora's original roots, it traces to a Russian-made mobile operating system as it is based on Sailfish OS Linux distro, and was given birth by a Finnish Tech company named 'Jolla'. It wasn't widely popular back then to support as one of the major mobile operating systems, nor it can be on par to Android and OS. But again, like any other powerful Linux distros out there, it is centered on security and privacy, which is not a surprise from any Linux user or people who are aware of Linux capabilities.
