    I testdrove the prior version a few months ago. Yes, it was admirable ~~ very polished (and English support).

    deepin developers have been engaged in turning out plenty of "good stuff".
    You can check out their apps (and deepin desktop) at github.
    One of their interesting (to me) developments: they forked libvte and patched it to restore transparency support (which the gnome libvte devs had nixed earlier this year).

    It looks really nice, though I think using these "docks" types of things make it seem like we're copying the style from Apple :p

    Really liked the black colors.

    I'm trying this out. The bottom panel can be flattened out and it hides.

    There are a few right click options missing such as "open as root". I have to see about that.

    Its a shell running on top of GNOME 3. The Budgie Desktop is quite similar.

    People who don't want to put too much work in setting up GNOME, Deepin is a user-friendly alternative.
