The installing of gnoppix was very fluid. The first thing I noticed was how fast and smooth the OS ran. Unusually fast for an 2.0 USB Sitck.
Then I was immediately reminded again that I deeply hate the Gnome desktop. But that's not the fault of the Gnoppix creators.
The change to to light modus don't worked satisfying.
I changed to german keyboard und connected the wlan. That's worked very fine.
Then came the very big astonishment:
There is the promise of "Enhance your privacy", but no preinstalled Tor Browser - why ????
There were two installed Browsers - Firefox ESR ( that's OK ) but the secound was the Edge from the dark side of the IT World - what the hell ????
This Gnoppix is faster and more fluid than Talis. I am not sure, if these two Thumb driven OS have the same goals and purposes.
For me self Gnoppix would more interessting with preinstalled Tor Browser and without the Edge from the dark side of the compurtworld.
In any case, this Linux distribution is so novel in its conception, and stands so uniquely in this forest of interchangeable arch and debian derivatives, that it deserves a review from Distrowatch as soon as possible.
Three points off because of the Edge.

At first I thought this had to be a joke , after the desktop only loading on half of the screen and only the dock buttons responding to any input I managed to get the application list to open to see what was pre installed. It is without a doubt the most random hodgepodge of software i have ever seen in a distro. For a distro using Gnome i dont understand why there is KDE system settings , and being based on debian why are there some ubuntu specific tools such software & updates. There is also 3 different firewalll managements tools, 2 bulk folders containing utterly random pentesting tools taken from another distro , and then kali linux tweaks on top of it? What is going on with this distro? It appears like something someone made using systemback after trying to smash together 5 different distros and only pulling bits and pieces from each into an incomplete selection or completely unrelated soiftware.
