There's absolutely nothing wrong with tuxedos' awesome distro! The only thing I could recommend for the future is possibly a "LITE" variant? or an online installer which allows the user their choice of Desktop Environment?? Other than that anyone who gives this distro lower than a 9 is a either a dumbass or newbie suffering superficial butthurt or operator error. I have suffered zero problems when installation is done by-the-book. Now I have had problems with ventoy installs , so I wouldnt suggest anything other than a straight 1:1 image to disk.

I am running this system on a TUXEDO Pulse 15 Gen 1, therefore I cannot say anything about the performance (it's a quite powerful laptop).

The installation is a no-brainer if you use the fully automated "WebFAI" installer. You can create a WebFAI USB stick with a creator software downloadable from the Tuxedo website. It's very simple to use but does not handle errors well (it just starts from the beginning without any explanation), so I ended up downloading the WebFAI ISO and flashing it to my USB drive myself.

I called WebFAI a no-brainer because all you get to choose your Linux flavor and if you want your disk encrypted or not. All the rest, the disk layout and the preinstalled software, is pre-defined. The WebFAI installer apparently does not use an image file but instead downloads each package separately, so the system is up-to-date from the first boot.

The system itself is basically a Tuxedo-branded Ubuntu. It features a modern KDE desktop with the Tuxedo X on the application menu button, the Tuxedo Control Center and the WebFAI creator. The preinstalled software is so complete that I had to install very little software on my own – in fact, I only installed fish and KMail myself. Even git is already on board. The predefined color scheme is white-orange and dark-orange respectively, however there is no Tuxedo-branded dark wallpaper that really fits the dark one. Kate makes up for that, it presents itself in a yellowish, eye-friendly look.

All in all this is a bold move from TUXEDO OS 1 as it feels way more well-rounded. I recommend it to those who run the first TUXEDO OS and/or want a carefree system without snap'd Firefox.

Fantastic version of KDE Plasma. Nice stable Ubuntu 22.04 LTS base with newest Plasma desktop and Flatpaks enabled by default. For those that don't like Snaps - they are not installed by default.

I used this on both my Acer/Intel laptop and HP/Intel desktop and it worked great on both machines. I think the updates are somewhat numerous or large. Possibly because it has a newer version of Plasma. I still prefer Linux Mint but KDE Plasma is growing on me thanks to Tuxedo OS. It made me look at Kubuntu again and I am liking both versions of KDE.

The kernel is relatively new in the 6 series.

This is like the Mint version of KDE. Latest Ubuntu LTS with Flatpaks and no snaps. I think this is the best version of KDE Plasma next to Kubuntu. It has an upgrade path with all the latest software, kernel, and Plasma desktop.

Best part is that it is fast and stable without the need to spend countless hours customizing an Arch distribution.
