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 have been looking for a Debain Based good Linux OS that has a feel of a real macOS. And then Finally I found Deepin. It's one of the most beautiful and sleek Desktop OS I have ever used. Just amazingly Brilliant. Works perfectly well and does the job.
I just love it.

This Distro is very beautiful and interesting except for the following:

- Security is not one of the top priorities.
- The configuration app have little options and you can't configure essential things (at least for me) like Wifi Hotspot.
- ¿Why the configuration app is on one side? One should expect not to have being constantly configuring your system. The configuration app should be a normal app (which can bee zoomed) and one should sometimes forget that it exists.
- The desktop environment should be more light. Too much resources wasted. Everybody must remember that a computer runs not only the operating system. If an operating system have a graphical interface, it must be fast, light and beautiful (which already is) in order to be effective, efficient and nice.
- Localization yet must improve.
- Some bugs must be fixed like guake crashing when trying to divide it.

In the other hand, I really must congratulate the Deepin team, because you can see they have put effort to the visual interface. And I eulogize the decision of including in the repo the most outstanding free (like in free beer), free (not like in free beer) and opensource software out there.

I really like this distro.
The Desktop Environment is amazing.
It simple.

I'd prefer the 15.3 option menu.
This new one is on one peace. It's too loadeeed.
We get lost in it.

I see some comment about how safe is this distro and I searched a little bit about.

It seem ti be clear that transparency is missing.

By default, there is no log. You need to install rsyslog and for using denyhosts.
You must install too iptables-persistant because the iptables entry generated by the denyhosts or other are flushed when you reboot...

Please add it by default the minimal to reassure users about security.

The depots are slow and they are not in https.
