Stellarmate OS as a replacement for Ubuntu? #44877
Hi!

I currently use Ubuntu as the basis-distribution on my RPI to control my observatory. Would it make sense to switch to Stellarmate OS instead of ubuntu, and modify it as needed in my setup? Or would that possibly break something, prevent updates to install and so on... I could see the benefit of having the SM android app available, which I think is not possible on Ubuntu, and no need to mess with setting up a VNC server on a fresh install.

Best Regards,
Søren

Well, SM is Ubuntu, so not sure I understand your question...SM is just Ubuntu mate with many extra astro features all bundled together... :) the latest version of SM uses the KDE desktop, but the Mate version is still used and available...

Thanks for the reply. It was not clear to me that 'stellarmate os' is just Ubuntu, maybe it should have been named 'Ubuntu Stellarmate' instead. So I guess the answer to my question is simply 'yes' :-)
