Stable, some difficulties with gparted at installation processing with live CD/DVD (non automatic process).
Really stable, and well packaged.

I'm still testing this distribution and I like it, but I'm more excited about the smartphone focused on privacy that is being developed with it, the Librem 5 phone, with PureOS instead of Android and kill switches.
I hope the developers make the most of this project and turn it into a viable platform. If I could put this OS into a smartphone and throw Android away I would certainly do it. Keep up with the good work!
PureOS is a Debian based GNU/Linux distro with a very lightweight look&feel. In it's current version 8.0 (beta) it's using a Gnome 3 Wayland session. The boot process is fast and shows a nice animation of the PureOS logo and some animation at the login screen. The desktop isn't cluttered with icons or side panels, it only shows a cool background image and the top bar with activities, the clock with the notification area and the status menu. The installed default browser is called PureBroswer and is based on Firefox with some additional plugins/settings for security/privacy. I discovered this distro recently while looking for information about Purism's Librem 5 phone and fell in love with this distro. ATM I'm using PureOS in a virtual machine, but I'm really tempted to change from Ubuntu to this distribution.
