Some of the issues raised in the first review were added to github. You can check the status here . Check the open and closed issues in this.

We will study this second review . Some of the points raised have already been resolved and in testing. Where required we will share a response with the users.


Hi , does /e/ plan to fix all issues raised for V1 version ?

As mentioned some of the issues have already been fixed but still undergoing testing. We will resolve these and critical bugs raised in Gitlab by users before v1.


Thank you for sharing this kind of stuff honestly and without hiding it! Of course, the content of this article is not very pleasant, but as long as eOS’s version number starts with 0.*, this is okay. Believe in you!


Such independent reviews are important. Users can read what is going on in plain English. It’s good that someone pointed out those issues, which can (should) be fixed anyhow, making e a better OS. If there will be a suggested apps list by e in the store, it’d be great to have similar audits regarding them.
