This distro is truly one of the best in a long time. Fully loaded for all my needs. I'm a simple user, limited gamer, no programming of any type, basic internet browser type, like music and youtube and topo maps. I layer topo maps on Google Earth and transfer to my Garmin GPS. Also like to play with the OpenStreets project. A little Facebook and Google Groups. Only thing I could see as a possible improvement would be the time to install, it took me 1.5 hours. Now, I'm not programmer smart; I selected the basic install, update & third party while doing the install, and that could make all the difference in the world.

As stated in an earlier review. The IoT version requires a username and password to even use it.
I checked Black Labs website and found no useful information pointing to the login account. The forum for Black Lab is utterly useless..
As for the Enterprise version.. If you don't choose to encrypt your install it will literary take 18 hours to install the OS.. 16Gigs of RAM on a 3.16Ghz Intel Duo core Processor 500Gb Hard drive. Slowest install process I have ever seen... And we have attempted it several times to verify. We can install Linux Mint in under 20 minutes.
If you choose to install with encryption then it has either hung or is still installing/encrypting.. its been over 24 hours and the install still isn't finished....
Sorry... but I wish I could say better for the Distro... but not this time..

Yes, it works well with old computers but the gnome is ugly.
