Nice basic distro seems to be close to full featured and works nicely out of the box. But it recognizes as kubuntu at first and the default color scheme and backgrounds are not so great i,m running to write this off usb with casper persistence on a multi boot and it works great.

I loaded it into VMWare and the live USB would not resize. It would, after saving the new bigger size, shrink back to 800 x 600 which is not good for an installation as the buttons can't be accessed.

In a laptop as a bare metal install it worked as expected.
It appeared to be commercial Company fork from KDE Neon's good efforts with a few more apps and embellishments included. The original KDE Neon is a better Linux to keep over Super X.

I was not impressed with their self promoting text on the Konsole Terminal's background.
I found no way of removing these lines of written screen script, with so much time I wasted searching.
Not recommended for the more technical minded user.

Fine dystro - but it should offer simple way to unlock all blocked features. Besides fast and good looking.
