1、The Alpha release is not stable now, it can be used for test purpose only.
Deepin 2014 is still in Alpha release, and it is for the community users that are familiar with Linux only. This release contains some known issues and functions that are not implemented. It is not supposed to use it on production environment or as the daily used system. For those issues on implemented features and interactive, you are always welcomed to post your ideas on Forum, or take a comment on @@Deepin Twitter.
2、DO NOT install and test on VMs.
As used Compiz, a compositing window manager to provide 3D animation and Gaussian Blur effects on windows which performance is poor on VMs, It is highly recommended not to install and test Deepin 2014 on VMs. The preferred way of installation and testing is to setup it on physical machine via multiboot mechanism, or to open DeepWin.exe on Windows system. We have scheduled to solve this issue by using our own Window Manger on a planned future release.
The Linux Deepin project get a new name now: the Deepin project.
