Decided to try this distro on an old Mini-ITX computer I use as my desktop. I wasn't expecting great results as previous distros didn't offer any advantage in terms of speed, mixed with looks and functionality. So I figured why not give Voyager a chance... And I have to say i was pleasantly surprised. For whatever reason my old underpowered PC feels great. I feel like I'm flying around while browsing. Everything just works without any hiccups and It makes for a great looking desktop! I liked it so much I stopped looking for another distro. I feel like I'll stick with this one a while now.

I think I may even put it on an old Zotac ZBOX and see how it goes. Sorry LinuxMint but you may have some competition now.

This is an excellent distro. Beautiful and reliable.
I used to hang with Manjaro for a long time but I switched to Voyager just to try something else and I really love this one.
It's Xubuntu but with gorgeous aesthetics. I always spend a lot of time to tweak my desktop appearance but not with Voyager because the hard work has already been done.
Excellent job by the developer!

I wanted something similar to my MX17, but simpler and prettier for my primary school daughter's notebook, as alternative vs. shiny Win10. I saw Voyager GS, was skeptical first - quite low in the list, Xubuntu. Anyway gave it a try. It worked well and fast on an old i5 compaq. When the kid saw it, she loved it at the first sight, doesn't want any gnome, kde or deepin distros, which I presented as a viable alternative. After all Xubuntu but very pretty, polished, stable.
