deepin (formerly, Deepin, Linux Deepin, Hiweed GNU/Linux) is a Debian-based distribution (it was Ubuntu-based until version 15 released in late 2015) that aims to provide an elegant, user-friendly and reliable operating system. It does not only include the best the open source world has to offer, but it has also created its own desktop environment called DDE or Deepin Desktop Environment which is based on the Qt 5 toolkit. Deepin focuses much of its attention on intuitive design. Its home-grown applications, like Deepin Software Centre, DMusic and DPlayer are tailored to the average user. Being easy to install and use, deepin can be a good Windows alternative for office and home use.

I used to be a Ubuntu user, but after the announcement of the Unity's end life, I tested Deepin and surprisingly it's a good alternative. It comes with CrossOver, so we can run Windows .exe easily, the DDE is much like Windows on appearance, isn't difficult to use, has a great store, comes with WPS Office instead of LibreOffice. For me, it's a 10 rating distro.

This distro is extremelly fast and rock-solid all the way. I've been tested many Linux distros in the last years, and it was the first time that I found myself so impressed with a Linux Distro. The Deepin store comes with a large variety of programs (some of them are Android apps!) and the DDE is so beautiful, functional and stable that I literally addicted on it! Deepin has the potential to become the best distribution among Linux users and enthusiasts. This recent version 15.4 fixed some problems and adds lots of improvements and polishments.

The only thing that Deepin needs to become perfect is mirrors..... a lot of them, tons of them... All over the world!

Mirrors... mirrors today, mirrors tomorrow, mirrors always.

Congratulations for all Deepin devs. You're the best.

Totally 10 rating distro!

Beautiful, solid and stable, I just love it. Everything runs smoothly.

Many bugs from 15.3 have been fixed and it's just a pleasure to use it on my laptop. It starts quickly, and shutdowns quickly as well.

I use it on my university laptop. The latest installer is really easy to understand and better than the previous one. The UI is, as usual, beautiful and intuitive. It fulfills all my needs, ie. word processing, spreadsheets, browsing and programming.

The only thing I'm waiting for is the latest kernel version to be able to use it on my desktop !
