I installed it two days ago and I was pleased with the installation process. Easy and simple.
After installation, my first impression was: That's a nice looking XFCE desktop there.
It's almost the same as my default one. Good job devs.

Preinstalled programs: good. Only pamac and libreoffice are missing.

Available DE's: currently only XFCE but they are working hard on getting us a NET installer in autumn.

Performance: on par with Arch.

Bloatware: no bloatware, thank you Lord!

I'm really pleased. Keep up the good work.

Currently the best Arch based distro!
Has everything I need without all the bloatware that Manjaro has.

I really wish all the best for the devs and for the people that use it!!
