Being a Windows User most of my life I looked for an alternative to switch away from MS and thier product policy. Linuxfx comes close, but unfortuantely not close enough to convert me. And here is why!

1. Asking for a license for OSS and annoy me with messages all the time left pretty much the same impression that M$ left with me for the last decade. Asking for donations would be okay, and I would sponsor a project that has my attention. But this? Not a wise move or good marketing at all.

2. Localization aka translating the UI and APPS into my native language isn't any good. My family, my friends and my customers are not fluent in English. If you want to convert Windows user to Linuxfx pay more attention to localization.

3. Application pre-selection is garbage. What is so hard to just install a basic operating system and let the user decide what applications s/he wants? Every freaking distro that I tested cluttered my system like Windows does and I have to remove the unneeded stuff myself in time consuming sessions.

4. Too much of a choice is too much of a hassle. It takes time to manage it and no one has time today, especially when it comes to application selection. That's why M$ and (Gr)Apple are so successful. There are only two Office Suites, two mail clients, and so on that are used in the market. The rest is either used for exotic or historical reasons. The exception are browsers. But considering that they either have a Google or Mozilla engine we are almost there. The different UI's are just eye candy. So, limit the application selection to the most used ones for each category.

5. It must run on older machines! If it doesn't you will not convert anyone from Windows. Especially during high inflation times and sustainability discussions like today. One of the Linux community arguments is that it runs on older hardware. So, make it a habit and not just a "marketing" argument. Proof it!

6. Make it simple to migrate. Look whats there and react on it. If Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird is installed on Windows, install it on Linuxfx as well and convert links and mails. Migration shouldn't be a pain in the backside. It should be as painless as possible. So, lower barriers and help them convert.

These are my 2 cents as a Windows user looking for an affordable alternative to get things done hasslefree.

Linuxfx was developed with in mind to mimic the look and feel of Windows 10/11. There are few, if any, operating systems quite like Linuxfx, also known as Windowsfx. It is this version of a Linux distribution, Windowsfx, that Windows users have been looking for. A Windows 11 interface with the speed and security of Linuxfx.

Trusted and well-known software such as Edge browser, Teams, Skype, PowerShell and more are possible as standard. This is possible, among other things, because of the compatibility for .EXE and .MSI applications thanks to the well-known Wine. This makes the transition easier and more familiar, but the way is open for the deployment and use of the wide range of free Linux software. For example, LibreOffice, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Transmission, TeamViewer, Anydesk, Kodi, VLC, GIMP, Steam, Spotify, OBS Studio, etc. are included.

One of the standout features of Linuxfx is its interface, which is modeled after the Windows 10 desktop environment. This makes it a great option for users who are familiar with Windows and are looking for a similar experience on Linux. Additionally, Linuxfx comes pre-installed with a variety of applications, including LibreOffice, GIMP, and VLC media player, making it a great option for productivity and multimedia tasks.

Another positive aspect of Linuxfx is its ease of installation. The installation process is straightforward and doesn't require any technical knowledge, making it accessible to even the most novice users. Furthermore, Linuxfx has excellent compatibility with hardware, making it a great option for users with older or less powerful machines.

However, one potential downside of Linuxfx is its limited software repository. While it comes pre-installed with a variety of useful applications, some users may find that it lacks the variety and depth of the software available on other Linux distributions. Additionally, while Linuxfx is designed to be user-friendly, it may not be as customizable as other Linux distributions, which may be a negative for more advanced users.

Overall, my impression of Linuxfx is very positive. Its interface and ease of use make it a great option for users who are new to Linux, while its compatibility and performance make it a solid choice for more experienced users as well. If you're looking for a free and open-source operating system that is user-friendly and reliable, Linuxfx is definitely worth checking out.
