I was very happy to install this distro. It has a nice interface and a rolling release ubuntu distro was very appealing. However, it is bare bones and requires even cups to be installed for the printers, as well as office software. Bluetooth was installed and enabled out of the box but my bluetooth speaker wound not show up in pulseaudio, even though it was connected and trusted. While installing common apps I suddenly lost the search icon from plank, then I lost the system icon. After that I lost the Rhino wallpaper.

I eventually installed the gnome desktop over it and everything began to function normally, including the bluetooth. I'm actually using it right now. I think Rhino Linux has a long way to go before it can be released as a stable distro.

On my primary PC I have Linux Mint, very stable. On my second PC, I do some experiments. I wanted to try Rhino linux, so I downloaded it, burned the ISO and try to install it, it was a catastrophy.

The installer said "start computer again", so I did. My PC couldn't find Rhino and started a piece of Tumbleweed again. With gparted I saw that somewhere there was pointed to Rhino, but boot parition on a totally wrong place.

I think we have to wait 6 to 12 months for a good working version of it. Too bad.

On my experiment computer I shall remain with Tumbleweed.

I installed it on the ssd of an old i3 8gbt computer.
Very impressed. All network connections work stably. Easy, beautiful, fast interface.
There are all the necessary applications for development.

I mainly work with docker, python, javascript.
Before I tried to use fedora (very heavy and slow), EndevourOS and MX linux.
I liked Rhino more, really good, amazing tool.

Million hanks to the developers.
