I'm a former Windows 10 user and I must say, this is the most user friendly and easiest and OS I've used. It gives you around 20 different desktop looks to choose from; Windows, Apple and Linux look. It run flawless... you can't go wrong.
This review is asking for Pro's and Con's, and Con wise, well...honestly, I cannot think of a one. If you are a Windows user.... you have got to try ChaletOS.
Like the last Review, I have to say the same thing, this system is so good and has so many things at your fingertips, I'm actually stunned that it is not rated higher.

beautiful looking, fast and easy to use. very stable too, haven't detected any error yet.

I am very astonished that, while having such good reviews, its only so unknown still.
It plays in the same class as the other two distros raved for their beauty, elementary and deepin.
However ChaletOS is more practical to use in daily life than the other two (deepin still
shows its chinesw origins in some places and elementary is too restricted in their applications).

however, the website and the distribution itself haven't been updated since nearly a year, the forum on the website
is gone and googling the web for ChaletOS find no articles on Chalet os in 2017. This may also be due to the fact
that ChaletOS is only a one man project. I sincerly hope that the developer has a long life and will be able to
long maintain that project. this is my only real concern with the product.
