    And now for something completely different. Here's a long, thorough review of Deepin 2014.2 64-bit edition, a Ubuntu-based Chinese distribution with Gnome-based desktop environment, covering installation and use but no live session, including over-simplified partitioning wizard, look & feel, amazing control center and personalization functionality, Wireless (2.4GHz and 5GHz), Bluetooth, Samba sharing and printing, multimedia playback - Flash usability in different browsers and some crashes plus MP3, applications and extra software, Deepin Store, resource usage, suspend & resume, stability, quirks and bugs, comparison to Mint and Ubuntu, other considerations, and more. Enjoy.

    Damn that looks good. Guess I'll try it out along with Kubuntu 15.04 (Mageia keeps asking me for the install disc and KDE 5 is hard to install), thanks for the review!
