I started using Salent recently and I have to say I'm very impressed. I like the stability of Debian, apt package management, and the incredibly 'light' feel of this distribution generally. The pre-installed software collection was fine too. I just can't fault this distro; an easy 10.

I use this on an old Lenovo laptop and it runs perfectly!
Simple, lightweight and great selection of apps out of the box.
I was really surprised by this distro and how good it is.
One of the most underrated distros, If you like Openbox and want speed and stability try this!

Simply the best Openbox-faced distro, so far, ever.
Debian Stable, dynamic menu, Thunar, Gnome-disks, etc.: almost all of what I would include in a distro/spin.
As an experienced power-user, I would recommend this version to newcomers. Yes, you'll have plenty to learn, but you'll be starting with a very user-friendly distro.
SalentOS 2.0 is better than my own custom-build: well-done and many thanks to the SalentOS team for a beautiful work of art.
Pros: Performance is excellent on this 10 year old laptop (Celeron, single processor @ 2.9gh). Openbox and tint offer a nice clean desktop experience. If you like crunchbang or bunsenlabs, you'll find this OS familiar and totally customizable. As a semi-professional distro hopper, I found myself really taking to this distro, last time I was this impressed is when I got turned on to crunchbang many moons ago. Though Firefox is a total resource hog on older systems, alternatives exist so no big concern there. I'll be keeping this one for a minute.
Cons: I'll get back with you when I find one.

Starting using SalentOS when it was with Ubuntu, certainly glad they put those days behind them and run Debian. The last release was something of a surprise and found right home with it, this release is even better.
Mid-sized distribution with a nice choice of applications, low resource usage as well. Very happy and can't complain about anything, simply a great upgrade from the last release.
Themes and icons are quite adequate for customizing, the tint2 docker is a nice touch for shortcuts. Appearance overall is very attractive.
Highly recommend anyone looking for a very stable Debian Openbox to try SalentOS, very impressive!
