The RC version of Deepin V23 introduces a range of new features and enhancements aimed at attracting users looking to switch from Windows 11. However, potential switchers are advised to wait for the stable version to ensure a smooth transition. The installer has been optimized with improved UI details, updated carousel images, and a trial mode for users to experience the system without installation.

Users can now create and modify application groups, drag custom applications to change their order, and use a letter index feature for easier navigation. “Frequently Used Software” and “Recently Installed” modules have been added to enhance application management. The taskbar has been refactored using QML and now supports a maximum of six workspace views.

Other updates include new shortcuts in the file manager, cloud synchronization for the calendar and browser, and optimized application descriptions and new feature displays in the app store. Additionally, the deepin-service-manager plugin has been adapted for better functionality. Standalone applications for cross-device collaboration have been introduced, allowing for mouse and keyboard sharing, clipboard sharing, and file transfer between devices.

The overall interaction experience on the Deepin side has been optimized, and a new Windows application version is available for download. UOS AI has been enhanced with optimized application window interaction logic and new support for generating images through text descriptions, making the system more intuitive and user-friendly. The release candidate addresses several bugs, but there are known issues that still need to be fixed.

The Deepin V23 RC presents a promising alternative to Windows 11, but users should wait for the final version for a stable and polished experience. For those interested in exploring the RC version, patience is advised before making the full switch.
