Flash 15 Is all round installation and Stable and working.

Installed Firefox, and got rid of a few bits and pieces that I don't use.

Just be patient with the install, it can take a while but worth the wait. Printer and network drivers all on tap, no problems there.

Tried LinDoz edition. Terrible, don't even go there.


Tried Flash, absolutely superb. Good, stable, Debian-based distro with xfce DE,

I froze the desktop changer, can't be doing with a new desktop every time I blink. I prefer to make my own choice and stick with it.

Installed Firefox, and got rid of a few bits and pieces that I don't use.

I like it almost as much as MX 18,1, Very similar content, with a different DE layout.

Recommended for relative newbies wanting a Debian-based Linux distro,

Installed on an old Acer 5735Z laptop with SanDisk SSD, Runs very nicely.

Just be patient with the install, it can take a while but worth the wait. Printer and network drivers all on tap, no problems there.

Personally, had no problems with "apt remove" after updating.

Worth a go.

Debian loaded with a lot of features and stable. . :-)
The length of the installation depends on the choice of programs and the speed of your connection. I have a problem with usb image, unetbootin did not do the correct iso but after installing and three days of active use 16 hours / day I found no error.
