I wanted to try AcademiX to see what it has to offer as a distribution designed to educational purpose.

I don't know why every time I see a distribution with educational in mind it's always shipped with Mate as the default desktop environment. They explain on their page that it's to be low on resources while still being user friendly. I'm not a big fan of Mate and would have preferred Xfce but that's only a personal preference.

- Well polished with many preinstalled themes
- easy to find educational applications with the "EDU" installer

- The iso is old and still based on Debian Buster, if you don't know how to use Debian you really are going to have old stuff
- Some added repos are getting error messages when trying to update in command line (seems to be a recurrent problem by seeing on their website)
- No audio or video reader preinstalled

Not the most mind blowing distro out there, regarding the educational purpose it does the job with "EDU" but it stops there. It's definitely not the most user friendly, if you don't know how Debian works you might find some difficulties to use it correctly. Since its main goal is educational, I would have liked to see some stuff regarding Linux/Debian but I haven't found anything.

Installed it on my old computer everything was recognised without any effort. The installation works exactly like the NET install of Debian. The distribution itself has quirks with some repos, but once everything is setup, it works and I only have to find needed apps using the different installers.
