The distribution uses KDE Plasma as the preferred desktop environment and it also includes a launcher for downloading the latest Tor Browser, OnionShare for anonymous file sharing, and Ricochet for anonymous instant messaging.

I like secure systems. Now, occasionally I want to run some linux-only binaries and sacrificing my security for that sucks, and Septor OS allows me to run them in a controlled environment, and even make them unaware of my location.
The OS is stable and fast!

Septor did everything I would expect a good desktop distro to do, and more. I have had a good experience with it so far, and I could be called a power user. I have not been a fan of KDE, but Septor made it fun. Yes, there is some tweaking to be done, as with all Linux distros. I only ran into the expected, and found answers to them quickly. Now, I have a gorgeous desktop that seems stable and easy to use. Take your time with it. Learn how to set it up to your needs, and it will impress.

Septor succeeds in making a workable safety / privacy centred distro
It works out of the box for me, but it took me time to find out how to work with it
Don't compare it to the average Ubuntu or so
Probably one of the few in line with Tails, Subgraph, Qubes..
