    From the FAQ

    Hamara means "Our" by the way. So many typos all over the website...

    What do you guys think?

    Good to see Linux being adopted in such a large market.

    That's awesome! I think what we need is one or more OEM vendor(s) selling computers with an easy distro that has a few popular packages like Chrome and Steam installed.

    Strange, has it been developed via LFS or is it based on some existing distro like Debian, Ubuntu or Arch or Gentoo? No specific mention in the webpage that looks more like a wedding outfit than a Linux one.

    From the look of the installer guide on the wiki, it is Debian/Ubuntu based. Their Git repo is password protected so we can't just go and check for the existence of /etc/apt/sources.list or yum/dnf equivalent. I might download the lite version (LXDE based) and see.
