Due to my addiction to trying out distros I have tried the majority of DW's top 100 and beyond. Feren OS has been the most interesting to explore, due to it's focus on usabilty it features beautiful theming throughout the whole OS out of the box (up there with Yaru/Suru and elementary), something which bothers me with other distros to find inconsistencies. Also comes with an extensive application pack, which is well thought out (my opinion obviously) and will definitely be useful to new users yet to scan a GUI package manager to discover available software.

On the website the developer states that as of last year he was still in high school. Regardless, he/she has not only put a skin over Linux Mint but has thoroughly customised the user experience. I'm not one for one-man or even small team distros, but this has definitely got to be the one deserving of a vibrant community in future.

I had to wipe my hard drive, the distro refused to update. I was not sure what the issue was but up until that point, it was my favorite Linux os.
