A dressed up Neon with some of the features of MX 18. If you prefer the kde environment this is a very good alternative to MX. The Epson drivers all installed without incident and all functions work. BeeFree is also quite fast and installs Nvidia drivers. Very nice! The install went seamlessly.

Cons: Have not found any yet.
