BeefreeOS 18.1.2 Serena x64
The system is beautiful fine designed and functional, the customization is really easy to configure and you can install almost any app, and is fast but frequently the system crash end stuck, then is needed to restart the system, in the last automatic actualization of the kernel, the wireless connectivity was lost and I was enable to configure.

Suffer many regressions but it's principal problem are the drivers, in the last actualization of the kernel the system lost connectivity because of the drivers and the system don't recognize my Wify card , then when intended to boot with the prior kernel the system cracked end become useless, so I can't boot any more.
