Better than Mint and other Ubuntu distribution. Very impressed with the stabler and more reliable architecture. Recommend to the user(s) with unsupported languages like Japanese like me.

A perfect distribution for everyday use.

As an Arab Syrian, the fact that it comes from Iraq is a special bonus.

All the best to the development team and thank you for your contribution.
