An excellent very stable system with lots of useful applications ready out of the box.
Installation was easy and intuitive. I loved the automatic partitioning. All hardware was identified correctly. Everything just works. Looks very nice too.
After installing it as the second OS on my laptop (dual boot), I found that I hardly ever boot into Windows. Highly recommended!

Excellent software that picks up all needed drivers etc and runs how Linux is suppossed to run. No glitches, just "Does what it says on the tin."
No ringing home like some other Linux OS's.
I have tried dozens (30+) of Linux flavours over the years and have been disappointed with them all for one reason or another.
Try it, you will like it!
