Breezy makes Tectonic eat its words

Filed under
Linux
Reviews

When Tectonic ran my review on the Ubuntu Breezy preview, I wasn't too generous: "Overall, I'm impressed but not amazed by Breezy." Having used it since then as my primary desktop, and having felt the affects of every update as Breezy became more stable and generally better, I now eat my words. Indeed, I am amazed.

The more I use Breezy, the more I see where all that development time has been going. Sure, there are no "hit you in the face" features or funky graphics (apart from the excellent font rendering), but the subtle changes are so pervasive that overall the distribution just feels streets ahead of its predecessor.

Full Review.
