I installed Nitrux in Virtualbox on my Ubuntu Mate system.

I gave it a "2" because the installation was easy and worked without issues (Ubuntu based installer and not really the work of the Nitrux developer).

After the installation, all I had was the Dock, and a Menu on the left-top side.
The desktop theme looks like Pantheon, which I'm not really a friend of.

The menu contained only 4 programs, the same that were in Dock. There is no overview like in other menus. So, I can't say what Nitrux has pre-installed. I can imagine that there isn't much more installed.

I opened the Software Centre (Icon can be found in Dock), and I had a look through the offered software.

At least, the software was listed in alphabetical order, however, the programs had no icon and all looked the same. There is no Category view, all content is mixed.

I tried the Search (Virtualbox), but it didn't tell me that there is no result for this search.

I searched for Gimp, and it came up with the program.
When I clicked on "Get" to install Gimp, nothing happened.

It seems that I can only use Chromium browser, Terminal, and a Text editor.

I wouldn't know what to do with a computer that has Nitrux installed.

The most underrated distro, so far is solid and nothing is broken, looks beautiful. All necessary firmware is presintalled.
Thank you for this software and keep working on it.

Careful distribution, complete graphic theme (window border, GTK + / QT components, icons theme), easy to handle. There was an annoying bug with the top panel but the developers have fixed it.
