It's very good to have it all in one place in instant running distro.

Pros: Great choice for the base distro, Lubuntu 18.04. It's very snappy, rock solid and uses very low system resources.

Con: Most of the applications are web based, which can take a little while to load.

Overall I think the team at OSGeoLive are on to something here that fills the void for much of the GIS data that until now has been scattered all over the place. This distro brings all that data together in one simple interface.
