*Hamara Sugam*is a feature-rich Operating System targeting the masses.
We have tried to make user experience foolproof by providing the
following features in this release.
1. Easy to use Calamares Installer
Considering the mind boggling setup with Debian Installer for anyone new
to installing Operating Systems, we tried porting toUbiquity
Installerwhich was later overtaken byCalamares. Calamares is the
universal installer framework which is very customizable while being
super easy and pragmatic. We have this beautiful installer integrated
with Hamara Sugam keeping our promise of making the distro easy-to-use

We have upgraded the kernel to keep in sync with Debian and we shall
keep pushing the latest kernels via point updates.
We’re using Materiatheme for GTK and Papertheme for icons in Sugam
taking into account the assuasive design and experience.
4. Generic application names
