    It is getting boring, all these distros. It is like everybody made their own theme of Windows 7 repackaged it (used to be done with XP, called some dark edition etc)
    None of these distros bring anything new to the market really, only make it more confusing

    Makes you wanna beat the living s**t out of the people who do infrastructurally samey repacks, doesn't it? I know it does for me - it is nothing more than a waste of time and bandwidth for the most part if you ask me.

    I agree with both of you. That is why I have only used 2 distros as my daily driver since I started using Linux over 15 years ago. In '99 I started using Debian full time and then almost 2 years ago I switched to Slackware. If you cant do what you want with one of those two distros then you might as well just use Windows. I have never even considered using a distro that has a "Windows like" theme. The whole point of Linux is it's not Windows.

    With that being said, most of the distros that I see people experimenting with look more like a Mac than they look like Windows. Even this one, once you put that "dock" down there it looks like a Mac to me, at the very least a Mac/Windows hybrid.

    *Right now I am test driving FreeBSD/Cinnamon and really liking it. So I might switch again. :)

    Personally , I think it's best NOT to get it from Sourceforge.... I think it's best to totally avoid them.

    I share the same views as most of the people who posted on this MDL thread :-
    forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/61501-How-about-that-SourceForge

    I wanted to try Bhodi Linux but I could only find the download on Sourceforge , so I chose to do without it , for now.
    I just can't live with all the bundled crapware .... and yes , I know all the arguments .... economic necessities ,
    changing business models etc , etc ...

    Sad to say , but that's the way wind blows ....

    .... Deepin looks nice though !
    Thanks for posting.

    @ SOCRATE_MMXII

    That Softpedia link still leads back to Sourceforge.

    Same story with Manjaro , even starting at their home-page !

    In both cases , uBlock stopped the link .

    SourceForge while kind of evil, is not entirely evil. If you can verify the sha1sum against the one from the distros website that you are trying to download, you should be ok. But yes they do practice some shady things there at SourceForge, and many projects are moving away from there for just that reason.

    I don't think that sf is tampering with the hosted ISOs on its server.
    If you have adblock with adsense filters can use sf without a problem.

    I download from SourceForge all the time. But I am on Linux, Firefox with AdBlock Plus. It's mostly source code that I get from there that is from FOSS projects, and linked from SlackBuilds. I never see any ads or shady links/buttons, and I never have a problem with the software.

    Likewise, FF + uBlock + Ghostery + additional protection...
