    I have installed SolusOS on my laptop. I did not like the Budgie desktop as I felt it heavy. So, I installed Mate and it seems to work fine.

    However, the touchpad click was not working. Also, as an IT consultant, I needed some of other packages like DKMS and I raised some package requests to SolusOS devs.

    However, I did not get any updates from the Devs even after 48 hours. Finally, I removed SolusOS and installed Ubuntu Mate. I am planning to install Solydx as XFCE is my preferred desktop and Solydx is based on Debian stable.

    Yeah it’s almost 2017 and you guys don’t even know how to add a link to a website for an OS you mention. Tecmint is stuck in the 80’s playing Disco music and giving half tutorials to readers.

      Yeah, you correct its 2017 and people are smart enough to know how to use Google to get links to specific OS..:)

    where is deepin os? whether the operating system can be recommended? :/

    • Jesse says:

      Deepin os has been around for years ..this article was merely referring to new and upcoming distros with potential.

    Why is slackware not mentioned?

  5. Michael says:

    You really need to learn how to link to the official web sites of the distros, instead of making people right click & search to get to them!
