To begin to summarise Snowlinux I will refer back to the aim of Snowlinux which is to “be user-friendly, incorporating many useful tweaks and carefully selected software applications.”
Snowlinux isn’t particularly user friendly. There are just too many hurdles to get around.
Installing Snowlinux is possibly too challenging for some would-be newcomers to Linux and the problems connecting to the internet were issues I thought were left in the past. Add to this the problem with the permissions and the inability to run Synaptic from the menu and it could get very frustrating.
