it is a very good distribution.........I didn't expect it to be fast in updates .........the only downside is that the effects don't work....(it makes sense, maybe from a 1.3 GB distribution)

I rate it a 9 because it is very simple and easy .........this distro was a surprise to me , when I first installed it on my computer , a very simple KDE environment

I distro hop a lot and this is the fastest Xfce desktop distro that I have found, for boot speed and general performance, beating In my opinion. Linux lite , linux mint (xfce), and MxLinux (xfce).
Of course LXDE will be a faster desktop but I have found the whisker menus search facility invaluable so have moved to distros with xfce.

Would be great for older systems and laptops that can run 64bit OSs
I did try to improve its performance by removing Office and GIMP for lighter programmes.
Also if you use 'Plank' dock you may need to adjust the compositor settings to prevent a shadow along the dock.

Impressive work, on a excellent ubuntu base.
