An Everyday Linux User Review Of Solus 1.1
Solus is at version 1.1 and therefore you expect a few small issues and I have had larger distributions such as Ubuntu hang on the odd occasion. I wouldn't overly mark Solus down for the issues that have occurred.
Where I would mark it down is that there isn't enough software available in the repositories. I know this will improve over time but at the moment there just isn't enough available to get by. This is made worse by the fact that Steam doesn't work.
The plus points are the good installer, the nice clean desktop environment and the fact that it does perform well.
The upshot is that if you can get by with just a browser, an office suite and a few other applications then Solus will be fine for you but if you need more choice then it might be a bit early to adopt this distribution.
