Endless OS - a good Youtube video review
« on: March 25, 2020, 05:51:12 am »
I found this video review to be well done and it makes me interested in trying the distro.

Tried Mint 19, but too many bugs. Went back to Mint 18.3

I looked at that one briefly until I read the Distrowatch review. They noted that you can't install it in a partition; it requires the whole disk. Also, the review described it as "very locked down", and although the reviewer wasn't specific about what was locked down, I took it to mean that you can't tinker with it very much.

EndlessOS  can apparently be run on a virtual machine.
There apparently is also an image of EndlessOS from their webpage, that can be run on a Raspberry  Pi 4
