I wanted something similar to my MX17, but simpler and prettier for my primary school daughter's notebook, as alternative vs. shiny Win10. I saw Voyager GS, was skeptical first - quite low in the list, Xubuntu. Anyway gave it a try. It worked well and fast on an old i5 compaq. When the kid saw it, she loved it at the first sight, doesn't want any gnome, kde or deepin distros, which I presented as a viable alternative. After all Xubuntu but very pretty, polished, stable.

Pros: Very pretty distro. That's about it.

Cons: Feels overly packed. I dont know of anyone who would use everything they include. Having 3 panels seems extreme. All of this can be changed, but the question becomes why not just stick with Xubuntu if you are going to strip out the unneccessities. Just as much effort as adding in a few programs.

After Point linux got dormant status I started looking for a reliable alternative for it. I have tried Debian, Linux Mint, Ubuntu(s), MX linux etc. but there was always something I did not like. Then I came to try Voyager linux and I liked it right away. I've used it for over a month without any problems. It's good looking and fast. I recommend trying it.
