    While I do like the idea of another GNOME Shell distro, I think a lot of the UI elements and huge selection of default software makes it a bit bloated and confusing.

    I'd focus on trying to make a unique GNOME Shell experience while keeping the default software minimal. There's a bit too much crammed into it (both DE and software) which needs some attention.

    Keep at it though; I'm sure some people may give it a go.

    I don't mind the UI customization and some of your tweaks are cool but, yeah, I would go with fewer softwares installed by default given the sort of person that would be interested in a respin. Overall, great work thought. I think the idea of having a gnome shell respin is great actually.

    Yes , but this is not my first edition .. so many people are depending on this distro for their computers

    Not to be a pessimist or anything, but is it really needed other than your personal use?

    What is the red thread with this remix? The idea behind?

    Just curious.
    My favourite place of all, is the closet in the hall
