Just a heads up, in case you didn't already know - PIXEL is currently
*only* a live medium with plans to make it installable in the future. It
can be configured with persistence if booted from USB though.

Other than that, it does exactly what is says on the tin. For me that
means there is very little to recommend it over other more mature and
feature-filled live distros such as systemrescuecd or one of the Arch
derivatives (for the moment at least).
