    I've written a long review of SolusOS 1 Eveline 32-bit, a Debian-based Linux distribution with Gnome 2 desktop, covering live session, installation and post-install use, including Wireless, Samba sharing, look & feel, system menu tweaks, multimedia playback - Flash and MP3, unique setup in quadruple-boot configuration, first-time wizard, applications, package management, desktop effects, system resources, stability, suspend & resume, some niggles, and more.

    Eveline is indeed a beautiful woman but nothing can replace my beloved Maya in my heart. Maya is the most beautiful angel I've ever seen. :D.

    Thanks.

    hi

    Mrk questions about the future of this distro explains why Linux is a niche market...too many discontinued or dormant projects like Caoslinux ( http://www.caoslinux.org/ ), too many different distro and desktops...for too limited successful business model...
    If this team wishes a log life for SoluOS, they really need to choose a real strategy where money must take a real part, from Zorin OS ( http://zorin-os.com/ ) to Mandriva...
    Comme d habitude, nice revue...

    My personal rule is if a distro is less than 2 (maybe 3) years old and doesn't have an active community, I won't rely on it.

    I pretty much would only count on the following long term at the moment:
    • Ubuntu
    • Fedora
    • Debian
    • OpenSUSE
    • Arch
    • Gentoo
    • CentOS / RHEL

    Fair enough! But the "active community" cuts both ways. Right now, there's a thread @ ubuntuforums with a guy installing Cinnamon and running into issues. Following advice proffered has provided "interesting" results. Of course, that's one way to learn. BTW, Jorge Castro has a video touching on that and outdated info (-http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nto7bdqxicI-).
