Running Lindoz 14. Found it a very pretty disto, Desktop feels like using windows 7. Lindoz uses Cinnamon desk top and has Xfce Version. Finding it stable, I am Mint user and finding this distro is on par with Mint but a little more effort gone into making the desktop looking nicer.

This distro at time of writing this is still under development but I am finding it stable and no issues at all.

Comes with good collection of apps

Fast and smooth desktop

Some App's are dev version like VLC and Gimp but so far but they work well.

My only nitpicking fault so far is the software package menu, it is Ubuntu, i prefer the Mint menus in software packages, but this is nitpicking. Really like this distro one that is really worth checking out,

Really good for newbies coming from windows, they will find the menus are basiclly the same as windows 7/10

I like this distro so much I am making this distro as my main driver for my desktop.

I download Lindoz 14, make a live Usb with Rufus and boot in my Lenovo. Everythig OK.I tested Lindoz 14 for 1 hour....RAM usage is aroud 640MB at first login.
PROS:
A lot of nice and usefull App are included.
Everythig work fast and well.
Keyboard layer and language can be easely changed
CONS:
External peripherals (USB stick, DVD) are not automouted or auto
opened at insertion (whereas Nemo is configured for).
Some App's are dev version like VLC and Gimp..but they work well.

My fealing: good distro still under dev but totally usable for a Linux novice.
My only concern after 1 hour with this live distro is that I was not able to automatically play a movie DVD at insertion or automatically open an USB stick on insertion.
My whishes: Having the same Lindoz but whith Mate DE for a smaller Ram foot. So I rate a 9 and recommend MAKULU.
