Pros:
My wife has been asking me to reinstall Kodi on our computer. She is not very computer literate, and I was attempting to elimate the desktop so it would be easier for her. I know my way around Linux, but was struggling to have an elegant design and still be resource friendly. After several disappointing attempts I found LibreELEC and figured "what have I got to loose." What a suprise! Everything just worked and I now have a happy wife
Optimizing for my hardware made a HUGE difference is performance! LibreELEC made it easy. So much less work than manual configuration.

Cons:
The setup screen seemed to load multiple times... but this was a minor annoyance and I'm not sure that I didn't have something to do with it.

Installed on an old computer with AMD A6 processor and 4 gigs of ram.

Libre ELEC is the best solution I have found so far for turning an old machine (Dell Optiplex GX520, in my case) into a home multimedia device - runs great (no lags), installs easy, provides straight access to add-ons, updates without a hassle ... the only thing I found lacking to my taste is a bit more system customisation control, both during installing and running it ... ah, and a lack of a driver for my Freecom USB TV tuner, but most likely, this is an upstream kernel module deficiency ... all in all - great work, LibreELEC team, way to go!
