Works Great! Boots up UEFI Secure boot with no issues.
Excellent choice of supported packages, includes everything I need to use as my "Go to".

I use FD64 on a Thumbdrive with an encrypted savfile that mounts on boot with a password.

The installation of Chrome was smooth.

I use a brand new Dell Inspirion 15 - 5570 laptop and all the hardware is supported. That being said, I do mount the Linux Firmware SFS on boot for my bluetooth to work (Ath10 drivers)

With little effort, have the thumbdrive configured to stream music, Cast video to devices at home, online bill paying, PIA VPN using Openvpn.

I've been a Puppy and Arch user for a couple years and was amazed at the lack of tinkering I had to do for this thumbdrive to become my daily driver for all my activities.

Locks up at start with the screen fritzed when test installing in virtual machine. Can't say much else if it can't get past boot and I can't see the screen.
