Previously I've used Mint Xfce on my 64bit work laptop and Lite on my 32 bit book reading, movie watching, web browsing laptop.
I recently installed the 32 bit 16.04 on the play laptop, an old Toshiba Equium, I was just harking back to the old distro hopping days of Dapper Drake and Wolvix etc but I liked Voyager so much that it stayed.
I've now installed the 64 bit 18.04 version on my business laptop , a Thinkpad X201, and on both I've found it fast, stable and oh so good looking straight out of the box. Installation from a USB stick is as simple as I would expect any current Ubuntu based OS to be and set-up is equally easy.
Like other reviewers I'm puzzled as to why Voyager isn't further up the list, perhaps it's the odd bit of French that pops up - pas de probleme.
The time/cpu/temp/etc bit on the desktop is fine, if superfluous, superimposed on dark backgrounds but it vanishes on light images; I can't claim that it causes me any hardship.
The only reason that I haven't given the distro 10/10 is that it's early days yet, only about a month and surely something will crop up, won't it? Currently everything I ask of it is delivered without missing a beat.
All in all a good OS for any level of user in my opinion

I have ran the earlier versions of VOYAGER for a few years now. I don't have a lot of requirements other than the apps run with no problems. This has been the case, especially running VLC and Parole, and Audacity.
-
With the 18.04 version release, and this seems not only true with VOYAGER but with ubuntu STUDIO 18.04 as well, when trying to watch a movie on VLC or Parole, the sound will cut out. This leads me to believe it is not a problem with the VOYAGER tweeks but may deeper in the operating systems as ubuntu STUDIO has the exact same problem. Updates have not corrected the problem.
-
I really like the VOYAGER series of Distros but I may be forced to go back to an earlier release because of the audio cut out problem when playing movies. Strange problem as both ubuntu versions with VLC and parole are meant for Audio and Video editing and playback.
-
Hope that this problem is found and corrected soon.

I found Voyager live at DW. Excellent operating system! This operating system should be in the Top Ten. It's my new favourite.
