One of the best Linux distros around, smooth and stable. Looks great without trying too hard to impress which is the perfect balance.
You can if you wish change the style etc quite easily and so tinkerers have also got it covered.
Highly recommended for those that want a Linux distro that just works, is stable and looks pretty cool also. Give it a try, it WILL surprise you.

Yes, it took a little learning to come over from Windows. But the transition was much easier then I had imagined. Chalet has become my fav, juuuust edge's out Mint. After a few weeks, especially if you want something reliable, smooth and not windows, you'll be so happy you made this move. I've been using 7 months, and still get mad at myself for not using sooner...
Thank You Dejan Petrović and your team (as well as all those before you). I appreciate you...

I found this distro when I was looking for a linux version for my 79 years old father who has very little knowledge of (and interest in) computers and is used to windows, but is also getting fed up with the windows updates taking forever and resulting in a very sluggish system...
I already had a ubuntu-gnome version installed on an old computer at home, but as I am also bound to the use of windows at work, I must secretly confess I still slightly prefer the user interface of windows to the interfaces of the various distro's I tried so far.
I am amazed at how well the user interface resembles a windows machine, but with a much faster linux engine underneath running it very smoothly. This distro is perfect for people who have a sluggish computer running windows and want a fast computer without spending a lot of time learning how to work with another operating system. Installation is simple.Really easy to work with, stable and looks very good. Great!
