Good for KVM capabilities. Best part is with all tools everything is setup on launch (no config is reqd) Worst part is based on Ubuntu. Otherwise it reminds me of the deb version of a red hat OS

Major improvement over last release. Much cleaner interface and not nearly as ugly as before. Good job to them

Tried to rate but never got posted. I have installed on my laptop and had no issues. I'm an average user and not doing techy stuff but it runs better than windows did and does the same thing. Not sure what version but its updated just today.
