Testing Elementary OS

Installation of OS was very simple (after booting in it shows you nicely to update all apps) and OS has quite a pretty look - transparency of terminal looks nice (very macOS feel with the launch bar). Naturally, I wanted to test Wide Open Thoughts as first. I had to install first OpenCL library, which was easy ('sudo apt update' + 'sudo apt install ocl-icd-opencl-dev'). Then I had to remove some nvidia unnecessary lines (code is now updated on github) and then it worked :). System settings are easy to navigate!

The minor trouble was installing google chrome as google chrome wasn't in AppCenter, but after downloading it, installation was possible from command line.

So far over all I like it and code application for coding does nice highlights of C++ code.

Downside: AppCenter freezes quite a bit.
