        Deepin needs to put as much work into performance as they do in their nice GUI. I have tested it often with PTS and it seems to bring up the rear most of the time.

        I could see why people might want to see their desktop design exported to other platforms, but if it drags it down like the current version of Deepin, most people will stick with Mint probably.

          It's an open-source distro, and the occasional allegation of spying has never been substantiated. Having said that, unless you're carrying around state secrets, or planning on agitating for political change inside China and then visiting China ... I think spyware from China would affect you less than spyware from the West?

            Plus the alleged spyware was only present in their store, which only ships with their own distro. The desktop environment is store-free (distros add their own store).

              Why do people talk about "spyware" and stuff when it's Chinese, but why don't we mention "spyware" when talking about Google, Apple, Microsoft or the like?

                Don't ask me. I don't call Chinese software spyware unless it's actually proven, and I do call Google, Facebook, etc. spyware.
