    Most people simply select a popular Linux Distro, install it, fine-tune it, and then move on: this means the many other Distros get ignored. This is why such excellent Distros such as Cub Linux are not as (numerically) popular as, say, L-Mint. FYI: I just tried L-Mint 18 Mate on my Intel NUC6i3SYH, and then toiled with it for 2 days, trying to get it to quit falling asleep every ten minutes (even while watching media), but to no avail. This is a bummer because I really liked it. However, it was not quite as fast as Cub. I recommend that all Linux users try other Distros (full downloads).

    Now, this geek knows how to set all the power management features; I searched online for hours, seeking answers to this problem, which by the way, many others had confronted with Mint over the last half-decade, but with no solution. The problem? It was/is evidently built for battery-using devices: Laptops! No matter the setting configuration, your PC will go to sleep! Now, I don’t mind my Chromebook laptop sleeping, but I never want my (plugged-in) PC to sleep: Ever! It’s primarily a media device! Conclusion? I gave up! I’m not going to spend $500 worth of time, trying to correct a problem that should not even exist! I went back to Cub Linux (updated/upgraded); set all the power manager settings to “never” and done! It stays awake all day, if I whim!

    I mistakenly viewed Cub Linux as a peripheral (or sub-par) Distro designed to restore old laptops (and PC’s) that have small RAM options. E.g. I plugged a new SSD into my old Asus 1015PEM laptop (max RAM capacity: 2G), loaded Cub Linux, and wow; better than when new (in 2010) with Win-7 on a 120G HDD: Highly recommended option! When I recently bought the NUC, which is OS-free, I just used the same (Cub) CD I created, until L-Mint 18 stable released, thinking it would be more appropriate for a more advanced desktop configuration. This is not the case! Now, I know; an OS must cater to the individual user: There’s no one-size-fits-all OS, and indeed, that’s what got MS so obese (and Win-10 is not solving their issues). If you are a Google-Android guy like me, Cub is an excellent choice! And no: no one asked me to post this praise: I thought it deserved it!

    • Thanks Paul for detailed insight. I hope Cub keeps pace with Ubuntu releases. I hope they release Cub based on Ubuntu 16.04 soon.

  • I noticed what was wrong with the sentence, and then comment it.
    Cub Linux 1.0 RC is the Ubuntu “14.04” LTS is based.
    Ubuntu 16.04 based Cub Linux will be published in the future.

    • Thanks for the correction. It is indeed 14.04. Corrected.
