deepin is an extremely polished, robust and easy-to-use distribution targeted at traditional Windows or Mac users. deepin has a very clean and clutter-free interface with modern looks and a breeze to install and use. deepin comes with a decent set of applications pre-installed so you can get to work immediately. It comes with Chrome, Files (nautilus), LibreOffice suite, deepin Music and Movie player, deepin USB Creator, PDF viewer, and Gparted, among many others.
All system settings appear as a right panel, instead of a window as seen in other OSes. The control panel allows you to manage users, monitors, default applications, among many other things. deepin went ahead and developed their own Shell which was simply called Deepin Desktop Environment. DDE is based on HTML5 and WebKit and uses a mix of QML and Go Language for different components. Core components of DDE include the desktop itself, the brand new launcher, bottom Dock, and the control center.
Since it's based on Ubuntu, you can install every single app that's available for Ubuntu using apt-get, launchpad or by simply downloading the .deb binaries. deepin comes with an App Store similar to the Ubuntu Software Center which makes it easier to install and remove applications, for those who don't want to deal with the terminal.
