Day 10 of the 2021 Series:

I gave JingOS a spin in the stupidest way possible, and it almost works. Assuming you're not worried about being spied on I guess.

I really hope it doesn't make novice user think that Linux is just another OS looking to grab people's data.

Other than that, I have no problem with a Chinese company making its own distro. In fact, I see that Chinese developers really like glossy UIs and I really like what they come up with. Deepin DE was developed by some Chinese developers as well.

@murtezayesil There was a lot of concern about Deepin and it's ties (if they exist) to the Chinese government, which is why I mentioned that in the review (not Deepin, just concerns). I'm honestly not a fan of information gathering by anybody, even if it's overt. There was no option to opt out other than just not using the distro.
