Thats a very polished distribution, linux at its best!
Using P8 LXDE because LXDE is my favorite desktop, i dont like LXQT or others and actually installed it on an Old Dell optilex 330...very very impressed, runs faster than anything else that i have tried, not even manjaro with openbox or vector linux were capable of beat its speed!
The Apt package manager is very familiar and friendly to those used to debian!
The only thing i miss and prevents me from using it as my main system is the lack of optimus drivers, couldnt find any solution like nvidia prime select found on ubuntu or optimus manager from manjaro.
Also steam and lutris are not on the repository and selecting São Paulo time zone gives me some bug...
Other than that its one of the best distros i have ever used! Fix these things and i will be back to give you 10!
A great GNU/Linux distribution. There's everything you need. A huge repository of software. Two distribution branches: with systemd and sysvinit. This gives the user a choice. And when there is a choice - it is good. Recommend. 10 points.

More than 50.000 packages! Good repo, polished, but the instaler is in russian by default. You need to edit at boot time to another language if you don´t know russian. Where is ru_RU change to en_US for example, and hit enter. The installer will be in english in this example.

Installation program reformatted swap space on hard drive. Regardless of the thinking of the ALT programmers this is not a good idea on a muti boot system. The companion linux systems have to be individually have the swap reset. This is very time consuming.

Excelente distribuição, estável, rápida e com um repositório satisfatório.
Seems pretty great, so far so good! I just really hope they don't drop i586!

using plasma desktop on 32 bit laptop; Very good distro
+ quite fast on old laptop ( 1G RAM )
+ most packages needed are in repo
+ lots of different DE available and choice for rolling or stable.
+ excellent hardware recognition, my canon pixma scanner/printer worked out of the box
+ more or less compatible with mageia if some extra packages are needed
+ still maintaining 32 bit
+ alt control center is a very helpfull tool to manage e.g. services
- slow boot
- unusual installer
- slow package installer
- installer and live Kdesktop iso boot in russian, you have to change the language with F2 and add the boot parameter en_GB to start in English
