so what makes this the distro i should choose above all others?
what makes it different? what makes it unique? why should I use this distro over any other?

of course, proof is in the pudding...

are YOU (AdamW or FunkyELF) using it as your primary system?

...if you're really interested. But what exactly are you venting about? Does every operating system OSNews ever reports on have to be the single best OS ever that everyone in the world should be using? (And if so, shouldn't it only ever report on one OS?) I just don't get the tone of frustration in your posts...

No, every operating system does not need to be the 'best' but it SHOULD have something unique about it.

If I release an Ubuntu distro with a black theme, does it deserve news space?

In my opinion, no.

Although what they have created was no doubt a labour of love, it appears to contain nothing groundbreaking, nothing even evolutionary


If I am mistaken about this, please, provide me examples and argue your case


I am being modded down because people disagree with the sentiment, thats fine, but noone has retorted with a reason why this distro is anything different from any other or why I should use it over ubuntu or opensuse (the distros I currently use)
