    It seems to me a poor article. I was expecting to see some screenshot of the distribution more than "it has one of the most beautiful desktop environments we can see in Linux" However, only a few screenshots of the installation. I also expected you to comment on what software it brings as a base and those curiosities that only Deepin brings.
    Thanks for your work
