Top quality distro. I have used this distro since last june without any problem. It can compare with MXLinux. I like them both. Voyager is also very beatiful distro and it can easily configure. I like also the Mac look.

Best XFCE DE I have come across. Relatively light on resources, Love the drop-down terminal.

10/10 very happy with this distro. Worked great in a VM, had a nice live medium, and install was simple. Not much else to say, everything has worked flawlessly.

I really don't understand why it isn't ranked higher. It's a skin of xfce just like MXLinux, or Elementary as a skin over Gnome. It doesn't get enought attention imo.

I tried the Voyager 18.04 Gnome Shell Edition in a virtualbox... and it is AMAZING for me.

It's basically an Ubuntu with some add-ons and extensions, but I don't know how it is running with less resources than Ubuntu 18.04 w/ Gnome Shell.
Ubuntu runs with around 1.1GB of Ram while Voyager is running with 850mb!

About the Voyager additions, I was surprised with nice and elegant themes (Yaru and Yaru dark), some great extensions pre installed (like Dash to Dock), some good enterteinment software (like Radio and MiniTube) and one of the best additions for me: a Voyager application that can change the Wallpaper according the time. So I can set a Desktop to see in the Morning and it will automatically change when the night starts.
Another great modification is the Gnome Shell menu... I hated all the applications icons scattered around my screen and the Voyager shows all of them in Categorized contents, like folders, helping to find what you need.

There is some little points to be fixed, like buttons or arrows that show nothing, but I think they don't take off the merits of the Voyager team work.

I dont know how this great Distro (or pack of pre installed add-ons) isn't so Popular but it surprised me.
Give it a chance too!
