    I installed this (Linuxfx or Windowsfx or whatever its called, 10.5) on a 2015-era HP Notebook. It was crashy, the Ethernet driver often failed up reboot and the WiFi driver never worked (yes, I installed the firmware package). It would lock-up upon resuming from sleep. I re-installed Windows 10 on the laptop and it's running fine (for a non-SSD slow-poke) again. <shrug>

    From peoples' experiences with it, I doubt I'd be interested in installing it.. My current favorite Linux distro right now is still Linux Mint with its Cinnamon GUI.
