The gap at the bottom looks odd, but I admit it looks a lot better when it’s filled from left to right with icons. What kind of drives me nuts is that the icons are icons, and not actual bars like they are in KDE or Windows. If I am in IRC, and a message comes through, that icon doesn’t blick, or change its title – because the title is nonexistent. I really like where they went with the taskbar; I just wish it was more customizable. Perhaps in a future version.

It’s cool you checked it out though! Despite its couple of flaws, it really does stand out to me as being a cool distro. I haven’t been impressed by a distro like this in a while, and here this one isn’t even natively English… it comes from China.

I think it needs some tweaks, but it has a lot of promise for the future. After trying it out I don’t think it will supplant Linux Mint for me, but it was a fun distro to play with.

I liked the desktop folders that reminded me of Android home screen folders, they look and act pretty much the same. I did like how they took the app launcher look from Gnome 3 and made it more usable, I would be interested to try it on a touchscreen though to see how well it performs. I didn’t like how when a window was maximized that there was a gap at the bottom, it was visually odd to look at. And it seemed slower than the other distros I’ve used.

Their software center definitely put Ubuntu’s to shame though. It looked great and other than still being kind of slow, like Ubuntu’s offering, at least it was organized well and pretty to look at, and intuitive to use.

So for now I’ll probably stick with Mint, but I’ll keep my eyes on Deepin now and probably download the next version when it comes out to see what’s new.

I’ve been using Deepin on my netbook since I wrote this, and I’m still loving it. The interface is a little slow on it, but it’s still quite nice to use.

P.S.
Glad you choose a photo from my country as wallpaper :-)
