    Very good article, but beyond the appearance I would have made more emphasis on the fact that it has a port of ubuntu mate with gnome for the pi 4, because at the moment there is no ubuntu mate for such nor is there anything with gnome for raspberry. Or in the fact that the raspberry is able to move those window effects that wobble ... without flinching, or that KDE consumes 500mb of ram and goes smoothly when I have gentoo kde pulling virtual memory and overclocked because otherwise it is infumable.

    Very cool, I had never seen any distro or any theme with that aspect so successful, I have even made a mistake and believed that I was using my pc and I was already crying because I thought my files had been deleted. I've been testing it for 2 days and it runs very smoothly on my 4gb Raspberry 1. Before I had to warm my head to install things, now I have everything I need and if something is missing I can easily install it, I think I will no longer need my Windows pc, Linux is great.
