An Incredible Operating System, I really love this Distro!
It manages to be light, easy to use and incredibly beautiful, it's not an easy combination to find in an operating system, however, it is found in Br OS.
Another very interesting thing is how easy it is to talk to the CEO, he is available in Distro's Telegram group.
I noticed that it is a Brazilian Distro, however, the system is available in several languages, including English, which greatly facilitates its use by people from all over the world.
It is worth mentioning that this distro has done a wonderful job in defending freedom of expression around the world, natively bringing tools to bypass the censorship mechanisms of authoritarian countries.

I love this distro. I have tried many in the past 6 months leaving windows. Most have a issue with a Elano wireless keyboard that doesn't exist. This distro doesn't have that issue like the others. It has acted up briefly, but control is back to normal right away. Besides that, it's KDE Plasma with Debian. And it works flawlessly! Has a an easy to use app store (Discover). Being new to Linux I would highly recommend this Distro!

I have installed Gimp, Krita, and VLC very easily. Coming from another Brazilian distro with pamac that had a lot of issues, I can say I prefer this one. If you like a distro based off Kubuntu and installs easy try this one by all means!

As a recent convert to KDE, I was looking for a stable, Ubuntu-based distro with a relatively recent version of Plasma. Strangely, Feren OS, Kubuntu and KDE Neon all gave me issues on the first day. But this distro, despite being based on Kubuntu, has been working flawlessly for over 2.5 weeks now.

In addition to being so reliable, it comes with a great set of applications. You get qBitTorrent instead of KTorrent; Kdenlive, Krita and GIMP are pre-installed, which are programs that I consider essential even for non-creators. Most importantly, it comes with Flatpak pre-installed, and immediately accessible through Discover. Seeing how Ubuntu is moving away from Flatpak, Br OS might be a better choice for many people for an out-of-the-box experience. Also, it comes with OnlyOffice instead of LibreOffice, if that's your thing. I personally prefer LibreOffice, but OnlyOffice is alright too.

On top of all that, the desktop is customized and themed gorgeously out of the box (it's using Plank, but it's easy to turn it off if you're not into it), and the wallpapers are probably the best I've seen on any distro ever. Honestly, this is a distro I wouldn't be embarrassed to show to the Windows users for the showcase of Linux.

The only problem I have with it is a pretty janky-looking logo, or almost a lack of it. It's just "Br" with some Brazilian symbolic in the background. They should really work on their branding. Commission an actual symbol for a logo and overwrite all the mentions of Kubuntu, such as those in neofetch and during the loading screen.

The reason my review mostly touches on the superficial aspects of the distro is precisely because it's working so flawlessly and out of the box. I really don't have much to say about the under-the-hood stuff when I don't even have to engage with it due to everything being functional.
