Very good linux distro, The size of iso is 4.22 GB but include wine lastest stable preinstalled, with 1 click install windows applications and automatically create desktop icons. It use kde plasma with dolphin file manager that has the sidebar that shows file infos, useful for audio files. The distro can be downloaded in default theme, Windows 11 theme and Windows 10 theme but I prefer default theme because the Windows theme is too much like Windows and to not confuse I prefer default theme. The discover package manager include flatpak and snap repo to easy install applications without download packages from internet, but some good applications like ocenaudio are not in these repo for now.

I just tried it out on a parent computer.
It's an amazing work to make the appearance looking like Windows 11. Good job and keeping improving!
Though I uninstalled it because there are some bugs (sorry but I won't be able to test them because I put Windows again on that machine):
-if I'm logged with ordinary user and lock the screen (Win/Super+L), typing the password and hitting ENTER or clicking on the "login arrow" won't complete the login.
-logging out with an non-sudoer user asks for a sudoer password for completing the logoff, I don't know why and I'm unable to logout but it permits to change user. That's why I think it's a bug.

I can't tell if these are the only bugs because I only tested things I needed to do after a fresh install but I liked it for the purpose of making it looks like Windows (for users that don't want to learn Linux distros because it looks different) and the fact that it's a Brazilian distro (I'm a BR too).

Being a Windows User most of my life I looked for an alternative to switch away from MS and thier product policy. Linuxfx comes close, but unfortuantely not close enough to convert me. And here is why!

1. Asking for a license for OSS and annoy me with messages all the time left pretty much the same impression that M$ left with me for the last decade. Asking for donations would be okay, and I would sponsor a project that has my attention. But this? Not a wise move or good marketing at all.

2. Localization aka translating the UI and APPS into my native language isn't any good. My family, my friends and my customers are not fluent in English. If you want to convert Windows user to Linuxfx pay more attention to localization.

3. Application pre-selection is garbage. What is so hard to just install a basic operating system and let the user decide what applications s/he wants? Every freaking distro that I tested cluttered my system like Windows does and I have to remove the unneeded stuff myself in time consuming sessions.

4. Too much of a choice is too much of a hassle. It takes time to manage it and no one has time today, especially when it comes to application selection. That's why M$ and (Gr)Apple are so successful. There are only two Office Suites, two mail clients, and so on that are used in the market. The rest is either used for exotic or historical reasons. The exception are browsers. But considering that they either have a Google or Mozilla engine we are almost there. The different UI's are just eye candy. So, limit the application selection to the most used ones for each category.

5. It must run on older machines! If it doesn't you will not convert anyone from Windows. Especially during high inflation times and sustainability discussions like today. One of the Linux community arguments is that it runs on older hardware. So, make it a habit and not just a "marketing" argument. Proof it!

6. Make it simple to migrate. Look whats there and react on it. If Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird is installed on Windows, install it on Linuxfx as well and convert links and mails. Migration shouldn't be a pain in the backside. It should be as painless as possible. So, lower barriers and help them convert.

These are my 2 cents as a Windows user looking for an affordable alternative to get things done hasslefree.
