"Black Lab Linux review"

What do you like best?

Based on Ubuntu.

General purpose community distribution that is best for home users and small size businesses.

Major releases come at a price but you can wait 45 days and get them for free with self-support option.

Great for tech-savvy users.

What do you dislike?

As any Linux - not the best option for non tech users but it's still user friendly with a user interface is simple to navigate.

You can't pin icons for quick launch convenience.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Looks like even Ubuntu has given up on the Unity desktop and I believe that moving forward Unity will be only community maintained.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Reduce software cost.
