Lean, fast and surprisingly stable.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Minimalistic interface
Chromium's system UI uses as little screen space as possible by combining apps and standard web pages into a minimal tab strip: While existing operating systems have web tabs and native applications in two separate strips, Chromium OS combines these, giving access to everything from one strip. The tab is the equivalent of a desktop application's title bar; the frame containing the tabs is a simple mechanism for managing sets of those applications and pages.
Because Chromium OS is designed for users who spend most of their computer time on the Web, it is intended for use in computers with little local storage and fast boot-up times.
Pro Safe and requires little to no maintenant
Since you only have the browser, you cannot install applications (outside Chrome Apps which are decently protected by their limited API and the Chrome Web Store). This means no harmful virus, and also nearly no way you can screw your system. Everything will just work.
Pro Good overall system quality and performance
Lean, fast and surprisingly stable.
Pro Great hardware support
Pro AUR support
One of the best reasons to use an Arch based distro.
You can find almost every package there is in the Linux world!
Pro Great XFCE implementation
Their use of themes and configuration look great!
Pro Support for a large variety of new hardware
Rolling release means newer, up to date, mesa and kernel versions able to handle newer hardware with better performance!
Pro Cutting edge rolling release
Exactly as Arch - allows users to stay on the most up-to-date versions of the software they are using.
Pro Not based on Ubuntu
Pro No restrictive handholding, pure control over everything
The user can do whatever he wishes because the distro IS Arch - with and easy installer and great themes.
Pro Fast and simple package management
There can only be one Package Manager (pacman) ;)
Pro Great for low performance hardware
Easy on the specs and still blazingly fast.
Pro Great community
Pro As slim as you want it
Based on Arch, Endevour OS keeps its core repositories slim and free of unnecessary dependencies. The distro comes with no bloatware, only the necessary packages. The repositories are nearly as full as those of Ubuntu, while they are often more up to date.
Pro Arch Linux Wiki
Being an "easy to install version of Arch" means it is exactly easy to use the famous Arch Wiki!
Pro Helpful community
Great team of developers and excellent forum support on their official website.
Pro Stripped down to the bone
Since its stripped down, it is fast and you don't have to deal with bloatware.
Pro Easy installer
Possibly harms your privacy.
Con No auto-upgrade (unlike Chrome OS)
Chrome OS auto-upgrade the system, but Chromium OS does not. It's possible that they're thinking about adding that feature from the design doc.
Con Same Cons that apply for Arch Linux
Since it is based on Arch, it is harder to install and can easily break.
Con Kalu needs a little refinement
I applaud the developers to carry on the legacy of Antergos, the only niggling thing that I would appreciate is, while it's nice to see news about updates; my opinion is that once you dismiss the notifications they STAY dismissed. And just clicking on the icon brings kalu brings it to the foreground. Or have the functionality of turning off the news altogether would be well received. Good distro.
