Great "distro" for experienced users.

Very clean and light after doing a fresh installation.
General performance is very good, fast and stable.

However, it's more difficult to use than other KDE Distros like Kubuntu or Manjaro since it includes very few software, which is frequently desirable for advanced users but not for beginers. In my case, after learning many things from other distros, i feel very comfortable with this.

Thats the best deb based distro ever!

Easy to use, fast, bleeding edge kde features! love it so much!

Also i got more fps playing on kde neon than on ubuntu mate.

Looks more stable and full of nice features!

Thats the way, keep the good work, we love you

Greetings from brazil !
