Great OS. It is stable. Though it is fully packed with nice engneering/science/mathematics applications, its image size is below 6GB. It is a single place to have a feel of how great things can be done with free software. It is equally useful for practicing engineers and engineering students alike. The students can have not only a feel of all sorts of works that is being done by software, but it can be also useful for understanding engineering.

I never had any problem downloading or installing it. In fact, I am using it in dual boot mode but working on it most of the time.

What a great, useful distro. This is a dream for engineers, designers and makers, with FEA and CFD analysis tools already installed. I didn't note BRL CAD, which is a mature solid modeling program and it would be great it if had the Linux CNC tools installed, but those applications can be installed atop the distro easily enough. I am eagerly looking forward to the next release.
