This is a simple one "JUST TOOOO MUCH BLOAT ".. Which causes compatibility problems due to the fact not all packages play well together ! But if you want to try a lot of different apps than by all means give this a shot.
Also note this is a French distro that looses a little in the translation.This is good for newbies coming from windows who like a lot of choices with a nice dock.

Nice tidy operating system that installs on most hardware with very few problems. Have installed on a large number of "older" machines with no problems except for the occasional problem with wifi cards/chips. In these instances the unusual hardware has also thwarted other linux os. Fixes easily found on Ubuntu/Debian help forums. (didn't really have to use/translate the emmaB forums)
Pros Very stable with lots of eye candy and utilities as standard.
Not heavy on resource, so suitable for older hardware, quite fast on newer machines
Most software for home/business use is already up and ready to go
Cairo Dock nicely organized (reminded me of AppleMac in some ways)
Cons The install asks a few additional questions that can have a marked change on the what you get if you choose the least appropriate option. Going for "all" works best but this might not be that obvious if you had not used it before.
Sometimes there are a multiple package that perform the same job. While the Cairo Dock organizes so as not too clutter, not everyone will want all of the apps. (not really a Con for most of us)

There are other low calorie systems out there but not all of them are this shiny.

Emmabuntus is a perfect operating system.
Even though I use Windows as my primary OS I enjoy experimenting with Linux distros.
I've had a number of favorite Linux distos over the years and Emmabuntiis is another one.
I'd also like to say that some of the distos that I have liked seem to sour with further improvements.
I'm going to give Emmabuntus a 10 and say please don't try to improve this one.
