I downloaded it, and it took forever.
Then, I loaded it ok, and the gnome looked nice.
The wifi connected and worked fine.
However, when I tried to add anything with pacman I kept getting keyring errors.
I tried init keyring, that worked, but never got it to update, or let me add apps.
Never could add anything to it, so I blew it out.
So much for it being for beginners, and being user friendly?
It seems to me, it was not ready for release!
I'll stick with Manjaro, EndeavourOS, Fedora, and Debian 12?
Everything works on them!

Tried installing this as a VMWare guest (before trying it on bare metal), froze a couple of times mid install so had to restart it a couple of times. Finally got it installed, beautiful implementation of the Gnome desktop, but kept freezing and crashing. Don't think it's a hardware issue because have previously installed other OS as VMWare guests on this PC (Debian, Fedora Silverblue, vanilla Arch etc.) Though to be fair, I had similar problems when I tried to install Manjaro as a VMWare guest on this machine. Not going to give up, because it looks promising, will dig out another PC and have another go.
