I have been using a highly personally customized version of Linux Mint Cinnamon 18.3 and have been searching through distros to find the perfect OS to wean my family off Windows 7.

I installed the latest Feren OS and I have been blown away. This OS is ready to go right out of the box and works flawlessly, even on an 8 year old netbook. It's aesthetically beautiful and cannot be more stably-based.

It can look like anything you want and it makes it so easy to do it it's incredible. I am at a loss as to why this distro is not more well-known.

I'm actually considering switching from Linux Mint to Feren for myself, but that's for another day. I was just so impressed I had to say something.

Once you install the correct video driver, this distro is wonderful.

Went from Kubuntu to Linux Mint Cinammon to Debian Xfce and now to here, and I'm staying. The DE was MADE for this OS so stability issues are minimized a ton (much like solus budgie)

The customized cinammon DE they provide is very clean and looks great.

It's polished, stable, has up to date packages and amazing support. 0 complaints, this is THE perfect distro
