Thought I would give it a try, as it looked interesting.

What absolute rubbish!

So-called 'live' version will not run on Dell 1558.

Why a 'live' version requires a password is unbelievable.

A 'live' user name of 'beccaholic' is bordering on moronic.

Don't waste your time.

I must I had the best Wayland experience on this Distro with my nvidia graphics card. I really like the os. It fits my music taste as well.
