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.

What sets it apart from other Cinnamon DEs is the ability to do much more Menu configuring. Unlike most Cinnamon DEs, where the seach box is at the top, with Makulu it can be set at the bottom, making it closer to the mouse pointer, which was used to open the Menu. (Conversely, if one uses a keyboard hot key to open the menu then one may feel more comfortable having the Search box at the top.)

Uses SU instead of SUDO, which some prefer. It still uses systemd, though, which I do not like. ymmv.

It has the typical Cinnamon theme installation headaches. (MATE is much easier to install themes, icons, cursors.)

There is no Plymouth splash screen so one will see the verbose boot screen.

Uses Synatptic Package Manager, which one who is very familiar with will probably like, but it retains the Apply button which other distros do away with.

I found it to be very stable and it also can update the kernels on the fly, since it is a Rolling release, unlike some other distros that tend to be difficult to update and install a new kernel, or the new kernels causes crashes or locks up the system.

Highly recommended for the very tech savvy.

I am using a Dell Optoplex 780 2 core 8 gigs of ram. Testing Lindoz 14 out on with a duel boot.
I will have to say that the desktop pictures are nice. But for me I tested the steam in the OS it does not work, No none of the screen savers that are installed do not work has well. There are many parts of this OS that look like windows 10 an 7.


But I would like them to fix the driver manager it is not finding hardware in the computer.

Even if you are using AMD or Intel. it should see either one of them. Plus it should find your video cards.

The software store needs a lot of work has well.
