Anyone is using Linpus?


It has only 400MB disk image to download,
looks simple, simpler than Deepin.

It is gnome 3.2.

Besides the question of who is using it, what are your actual concerns?

If you look around on this site, you'll find quite a few using it: it came installed on a netbook they got. And they're all having trouble! It's horrible. It's also commercial: the free download is a very cut-down version.

What's wrong with Pinguy? For a straight Gnome 3 on a Debian base, the competition is Arios and Parsix, and there's not much to choose between the three.

It came pre-installed on my Aspire One (2008 or so). It did what it was made for (netbook work) and that was enough for me; I never did any real configuration or adding of software etc. The reason why I removed it was an anticipated kernel update that did not come through within a reasonable time while my other systems were (already) patched.

Off-topic: If you want, I can bring that up with the main man of Pinguy; I talk to him all the time, and he values input greatly.

I did have a few issues with it, which you can see here:

But as you can see, I thought it an improvement on Ubuntu.
