Have tried numerous distros and this one intrigued me because it was stated that it is not based on others. Honestly, I tried it on a whim after working for weeks to get another distro to function as I wanted on a new laptop (Lenovo Legion Y530). I was pleased to find that this one JUST WORKS! I've had to tweak a few things here and there (really, only the wifi card) but, for the most part, it's been a great experience and so far I can see this as my daily driver for now. It's nice to have lots of bells and whistles but I've come to find the less you are distracted, the more you can appreciate the solid base of this distro. The forum has helped me on what I needed help with and, at this point, I've got everything I need. Great job and Thank you!!
