    Here comes a detailed review of SparkyLinux 2020.03 Xfce edition, a semi-rolling Debian-based distro, tested in a multi-boot Windows and Linux environment on a laptop with UEFI, 16 partitions and Intel graphics, covering live session, installation and post-install usage, including look & feel, fonts, numerous ergonomic papercuts and usability issues, networking - Wireless, Bluetooth, Samba sharing, printing, multimedia - HD video and MP3 playback, smartphone support - Android and iPhone (iOS 13), partitioning and slides, first-run wizard, package management and updates, applications and extras, hardware compatibility, suspend & resume, stability, resource usage, performance and responsiveness, power management, amazing battery life, customization and associated frustrations, other observations, and more. Enjoy.

    You’ve been hitting the pop again, I can tell, but not surprising with half the world locked into their respective Wi-Fi dungeons. OK, so here’s another ‘obscure’ one for you unless like me you happen to live in Brazil. BigLinux and I guarantee a higher score than 5.5. New release likely next month. Nostrovia. https://www.biglinux.com.br/

    Well well well, inquiring minds want to know ? EndeavourOS fixes that. Endeavour didn't want people aborting the install because they thought Calamares was stuck or broken, they added the terminal along side Calamares so you can see what's going on in the background.

    Thanks for your SparkyLinux review. :cool:
