risiOS is plagued with the same issues that derive from GNOME. So unfortunately, for me, there is really no reason to make the switch to this.
It found most the hardware out of the box. Had to go through the same steps as with a Fedora install to get everything up and working.

So... risiTweaks is bad. It's clunky and missing some things. To add extensions it takes you to the website?
This is resolved by --> sudo dnf autoremove risi-tweaks
Then installing Extensions Manager and GNOME Tweaks.

I also don't care for the branded risiOS terminal when it's opened along with the tweaks to it.

The default theme is ugly in my opinion.

Chromium is the default browser? Removed that and installed Firefox.

In summary, the out of the box was not to my taste. I don't care for GNOME anyway and there is no KDE rendition to try.
Some of the default choices are questionable. They certainly like their branding!

I see zero reason to stray from Fedora KDE spin. Or even for those that use stock Fedora.

Like many Fedora users, I despise the GNOME 3 Desktop.
Hopefully it is already possible to install MATE or XFCE which are much better in my view.
May I suggest to release the live distro based of the Fedora MATE Desktop currenr Fedora-MATE_Compiz-Live-x86_64-37
Or even better with the latest XFCE 4-18 ? Both being fine.
Possibly with the latest being tested web installer, because if I admit it works, Anaconda is still a terrible installer !
I do like the ideas of risiOS, but like defunct Krita, it has to add value to the great Fedora base to survive, strive.
Please mention if Kernel is the same as Fedora, or modified.

I'm using risiOS 36 (I said 37.1 so I could submit this). It's a perfectly solid Fedora based distro, and the extra tools really make the experience. risiScript is a super neat system I can't wait to play with more, and rTheme is amazingly cool I wish i used it more. I have a great deal of respect for the developers and can't wait to upgrade to 37 when the tool is available. It runs great, even on my old hardware, the default experience is clean and well thought out. I would totally recommend this to people who want an RPM distro with a tad more than Fedora.
