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 now used this for 6 months. I truly like it. It is so simple and modern looking distro. However, there are also downsides. Some applications are not in their latest version, at least on the app store. The app store is the best I have seen so far in any Linux distro.
I did not have any problems with the hardware drivers. I think that the software is optimized pretty nicely.
I had previously Ubuntu on this same laptop and it was consuming a lot more resources than this.
My laptop is not the latest model, it is 5 years old HP Zbook, but has 8 GB of ram. All the software I have run works nicely. Video editing is obviously not fun with this, but I have done some moderate projects.
I can honestly recommend trying this distro. It is GOOD!!
