MakuluLinux-15 LinDoz is a stunningly beautiful and extremely fast running Debian testing based Cinnamon Desktop OS. It uses themes that resemble m$ Windoze themes (xp, win7 win10 etc). This makes it easy for m$ OS users to migrate to Linux.Installation is very simple. The iso itself doesn't have a lot of software installed, but during the installation you get to select which flavour of Desktop you want to use (Office, Gamer etc). Based on what you select the packages are then downloaded and installed. You also have the option for a barebones install, which doesn't download any additional software.

Pro's:
1. Extremely fast. The fastest Cinnamon based OS I have ever seen.
2. Beautiful themes and backgrounds.
3. Very good idea to have only one iso and let the user decide during installation what he's going to use the OS for.
4. There is also an ova file for download, which can be downloaded from the site and imported directly into VirtualBox, so users don't need to install it themselves into VBox, very good idea?

Con's:
1. To install anything other than barebone, you need an Internet connection when installing the OS.

All in all an awesome OS.

1. It is very slow
2. I can not install another language than english, even if it choose "german" on the installer, after reboot, the system is in english and when i try to add the german language it will do nothing (choos german, klick on install and........tataaaaaaaaa.... nothing happens.
3. The idea is good but it will take some versions to install it again (may Makulu 20 or 25 will work good)

I don´t know how many people are on this Linus working but they have still a lot of work todo!!

J'ai installé Lindoz sur mon Lenovo G50-30 et tout fonctionne à la perfection.
Makulu est stable et très facile à utiliser et je la conseille aux nouveaux adeptes de Linux.
L'installation est très facile et les applications embarquées sont suffisantes
et bien choisies......et on peut rapidement installer de nouvelles appli avec
synaptic.
La configuration d'origine est attrayante. J'utilise Siduction, Peppermint mais
je préfère Makulu car plus attrayante.
Je conseille d'essayer Makulu en live (mot de passe makulu mais ,qkulu sur clavier QWERTY) pour voir si tout fonctionne et si ça plait.
Le bureau est Cinnamon mais il existe une version Xfce plus légère en RAM.
..je mets 9 seulement car je préfère le bureau Mate , mais c'est mon opinion.
I rate a 9 only because a Mate version is what I think better IMO....with a Mate DE Makulu will become my daily OS.
...Please dev offer us a Makulu Mate.
