Bloat.

I really wanted to like this distro. I want, for a desktop distro, an OS with lots of gaming-oriented codecs, drivers, etc.

The PPAs? Are all out of date. With Meltdown and Spectre looming it is a daunting task to update your system. Good luck trying to update them.


When I tried to do so, it finally crashed and never successfully recovered.

Their forum isn't exactly helpful as they are Ubuntu but aren't either. More like the Ukrainian cousin to Ubuntu.

I think finding a distro more upstream to Debian or Debian itself, might be more useful.

I am now moving on to trying: Fedora Game Spin, SparkyLinux: Game Over Edition, deepin, Solus, and some other distros until I find something that fills the bill better.

Ubuntu main distro should just incorporate what UALinux does.

The best all round system there is, there are a few that come close but are not Canonical partners.
