Running on Intel NUC5PPYH - runs flawlessly.
I wish all distros could run this well...

Direct upgrade path from OpenELEC, so no need to reconfigure.

Very easy to install and update, runs Kodi with little to no issues. Works even on older hardware which not all media center distros can do.

Great OS.
It took about 5 minutes to install, another 5 to install a couple of plugins.
Installed on Acer Veriton N282G.
