Deepin 23 Alpha is the second version of Deepin 23. Based on the new "Flow Design" concept, deepin 23 presents you with fashion UI interfaces and considerate interactive experiences. In terms of functions, it actively responds to the feedback from deepin users, develops and integrates many practical functions to meet user requirements in different scenarios. What is more, it fixes a large number of usage issues, preinstalls some Linglong applications, and comprehensively improves system compatibility and smoothness. Welcome to try it!
