Following Gnome and Mate, UKUI became the third optional desktop environment for openEuler. After Debian, Ubuntu, Arch Linux and other international Linux distributions, openEuler is another open-source operating system that takes UKUI as an optional desktop environment. UKUI is being accepted and recognized by more and more mainstream Linux distributions.
