Would be exactly what I need if it wasn't for Gnome 2. With Mate, Plasma LTS and Cinnamon I don't see a need to keep Gnome2

It has everything anyone could hope for. It has a beautiful desktop, all the multimedia stuff you could need, wireless working out of the box and a bunch of tools to take care of a good complete and stable system -- and keep it that way. Plus a huge repository for all a heart could ask for. It isn't absolutely perfect, but it's more than good enough and as close to perfection anyone could wish. And since it is sans systemd it get a 10 just because it has thus become the most prefect Linux distro out there.

Of course another great benefit is the very stable, reliable and beloved Gnome 2 desktop with no plans to go to Gnome 3. I applaud the effort behind Stella and look forward to a long happy relationship. Bravo!

Very stable and usefull. Remember a little of old fedora ou something like Red Hat/CentOS. It´s focus on Desktop user. Very good repo and a big list of stable software.
