Congrats to all the team on the hard work.. :D


Full install
Non-UEFI machine
Multi-Boot (Solus recognized all partitions)

Easy, fast installation (no issues)
Very little to report.

1. Time zone not correctly recognized (though set in installer). Had to re-set manually (tweak-tool)
2. "DoFlicky" not recognizing latest Nvidia driver (352.55) though card supports it (Mentioned in previous thread)
Not a big issues as 352.55 can be installed from software center.

Well up until yesterday I'd been running Solus Daily in VirtualBox only. I finally took the plunge and installed RC1 for real on my desktop. So far it is very impressive on real hardware. It's very responsive and looks great. Solus has taken the place of my beloved Fedora (on my desktop) which is a big deal for me since Fedora has always been my go-to distro (rock solid and reliable). DoFlicky found my NVIDIA card and installed drivers without any issues.

Congrats to Ikey and the Solus team for a great release!
