Raspberry Pi’s PIXEL Linux desktop environment now available for x86 PCs

By Sebastian Anthony

In a rather curious turn, he Raspberry Pi foundation has released an x86 PC port of its PIXEL+Debian Linux desktop environment.

PIXEL (which is a clunky backronym for Pi Improved Xwindows Environment, Lightweight) is an extensively modified version of the LXDE X11 desktop environment. It was originally released in September for use with Raspberry Pi single-board computers, but now it’s also been packaged up for x86 PCs. You can boot your Windows or Mac PC into the PIXEL desktop environment right now, if you so wish.
