I started using Salent recently and I have to say I'm very impressed. I like the stability of Debian, apt package management, and the incredibly 'light' feel of this distribution generally. The pre-installed software collection was fine too. I just can't fault this distro; an easy 10.

I use this on an old Lenovo laptop and it runs perfectly!

Simple, lightweight and great selection of apps out of the box.

I was really surprised by this distro and how good it is.

One of the most underrated distros, If you like Openbox and want speed and stability try this!

Simply the best Openbox-faced distro, so far, ever.

Debian Stable, dynamic menu, Thunar, Gnome-disks, etc.: almost all of what I would include in a distro/spin.

As an experienced power-user, I would recommend this version to newcomers. Yes, you'll have plenty to learn, but you'll be starting with a very user-friendly distro.

SalentOS 2.0 is better than my own custom-build: well-done and many thanks to the SalentOS team for a beautiful work of art.
