User Reviews

  • The best distro ever, not enough time in the day to go through it, my passion is rekindled in io Gnu/ Linux! I am extremely grateful to the developer(s) and project admin and mkeldoctor and SF for hosting! Easily worth thousands if it were mainstream proprietary! Wan't to boot on Mac hardware, also I am interested in installing this on ARM touchscreen devices and all my friends' and family member's devices. I been using for about a month- month and a half and feel like I didn't even scratch the surface, also my day job is not IT related. Could give an in-depth review, detailed aptly, but won't due to time constraints. Venni Vicci!! Muchos Gratitious!! Cheers!! Beers!!
