Isn't it lovely to have a system which needs to be fixed before you can use it?

I have to admit I enjoy trying out the distro's you dig up. They are not always suitable for me, but they're always interesting.
Guess I'll be giving this one a spin too.

No different to a new install of Windows, or are you suggesting users should ignore the security updates?

Security updates are fetched during the installation, so: Yep.

There's a hard-to-miss banner in the colour of your favourite OS. Ubuntu doesn't need to be fixed before you can use it, unless you're stretching the definition of words beyond any reputable dictionary.

Plus, I highly doubt you don't tweak your OS in any way. I bet even "need to be fixed" tweaks were made, by your definition.

Of course I tweak my OS (whichever it is). Still, there's no website called "fixwindows", "fixopenbsd" or the like. Guess why?

This distro surprised me in a good way. I like the way all the different parts come together producing a very good desktop. Nice!

I'm pleased you like it. My current Centrych desktop image is here.

Also using the "Ater" window border theme and Wren folder icons.
