I gave the latest version of Deepin 15.6 a whirl. It took around 30 minutes to install from a nearly 4GB ISO. The desktop is stunning but boy is it slow, even after turning off the effects it still was sluggish. It had some quirky file and management features but the control panel set is the best I have seen in any OS, period.
The sluggishness means I would not use it which is a shame as it is visually stunning. The machine I ran it on is a i7 quad core with 16GB of Ram. It was a fall install not a VM install.
