Pros:
Excellent performance, looks amazing, great customization options, very simple install and works great out of the box.

Cons:
Minor issues with adding and removing applets. Applets will install but not appear in the menu selection and no applet users information... for example I still have not figured out how to use the Wallpaper Switcher :)


Overall Impressions:
I absolutely love this operating system and is now my official everyday Linux operating system. Great job developers!!

Cool! Performance good. Applets useful. Nice font. Minor bugs. I hope, the developers will fix them.

Excellent applets. Stable. Performance very good, although not as fast as Solus, which isn't as stable or as package rich. Delete Plank right off the bat (for me).
