I can't say enough of how great revenge os is, of course I still refer to it as obrevenge. It does everything I need it to do. I have been using it for about 3-4 mos, everything works great including Libre office. It is my daily driver and I enjoy it so much that I don't think I will ever use anything else..

I've been using the Krevenge 2017.05 desktop for just about all the things that are most important to me. I recently downloaded and gave 2017.07 revenge a spin. I found no problem with it other than it's not KDE.There have been lots of changes and new discoveries about how to keep desktops and kernels safe from so many front and back door government sponsored hacks.. So...like other arch uses that just deal with what comes up, I found krevengeos and revengeos satisfactory. There's lots of things available via the terminal. Games. music. etc. Linux is one of the fastest evolving free distributions out there.

It's a shame there isn't a zero.

It looks great, but it just does not work! I did all the usual reamble of running updates to the system and database, then tried to install LibreOffice from the terminal. It gave me a choice of 'fresh' or 'still'. That was a good start. Problem was it could not find the required files and failed.

If a distro is not ready, it should not be released. I gave up Windows because of releases made to early that didn't work.

Get it sorted.
