I tried a lot of distros and EmmaDE is (by far) the most easy, to install, use and maintain.
It simply works (almost perfectly since DE3) out of the box.
XFCE black environment is good to preserve your eyes ;-)

I would have give a 10 for a EmmaDE version:
* semi-rolling release (Debian testing)
* systemd free (hopefully with sudden DE-Dev. enlightenment)
* less softwares (especially redundant ones!) or at least possibility to choose during install.

I definitely recommend it for newbies to Linux and use on old computer or "overseas".

I think some of below ratings are unfair.
Some sounds like judging a Ferrari not good enough for off-roading...

'm a Fedora user. Several times i've tried Emmabuntus on my refurbished hp desktop with a Intel 2quad 8200 and 4gb ram. This month i tried E Dv2 and EDv3. Emmabuntus Dv2 works better maybe it was more mature. Yesterday i've tried Em Dv3 from a USB flash disk on a laptop Hp dv6-2180ep with a i5 520m and 8gb ram and it works very well. I would like costumize Cairo dock but when i tried it fails. All in all i like Emmabuntus but i'm confortable with Fedora 30 and Fedora 31 so Fedora is my distro. I will install Emmabuntus because it's easy and amusent for my littles nephews.

Very average in every way. A little behind the technology. (No wayland).
Old Firefox. Old LibreOffice.
But stable and easy to use.
