Should I get PonyOS?

From what I know about this, it's based on unix (Not linux surprisingly) and that it was built from scratch. I have never used it but I could probably just run it in a hypervisor and see how it works.

My advice as someone who understands computers:

Do not install this under any circumstances. An OS made from an unverified source on a unique kernal that is untested and unvetted by any reputable group is very very very unsafe. It looks amateurish as well so that's not a good sign. An OS like this could cause damage to your machine, but worse is that it can be a serious risk to your privacy and security.

I highly advise against using it. To top that off, it basically will be incompatible with... Pretty much most of everything.

There is no risk running this on a hypervisor or a burner computer. I would recommend a hypervisor and having it set so it's just an internal connection. Probably don't want the connection to be bridged to your actual computer.

As far as I can see from the screen shots, it is using the similar I don't know it, I see only pictures gui like LXDE. (Or is it LXDE?)
While it looks nice and everything, I shouldn't try it neither, I simply don't know what would run in my machine. Ok...now I don't know that exactly too, especially when I'm booted into Windows.
If you want to ponify your system, then I would suggest you use theme packages regardless it is a Windows/Linux OS. Security....
