  1. May i know how long they will support a release cycle? Their distribution seem solid. I want to use them as on my production machine.

  2. Being something of a ‘distro-junkie’ ( I download and install weekly)
    I was surprised to find ROSA a pretty good example of a well built distro. Unfortunately with SO many other distros it will most likely
    remain a somewhat small in terms of users. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. My own personal choices tend to be Ubuntu-based OS’s
    so that’s not a bad thing. I do wish the developers luck and kudos for a nice job..

    1. All their editions are actually much better than many of the popular ones out there. I have the KDE edition on my lappy and it is not going to be replaced anytime soon.
