However, as can be seen by Impi's popularity on Distrowatch and by the amount of registered users on the Impi forum, the operating system has not had a large uptake among true-blue Linux users yet.
The lack of graphical configuration tools makes Impi harder to configure for the support jockey who is used to configuring and maintaining other desktop operating systems.
One of the criticisms I had for the distro in the last review, was that Impi lacked a proper forum, something which I have used extensively in the past with other distributions of Linux.
