Instead satisfied with adding and removing patch to make a new custom ROM project, AncientOS devs do extra job to tune the user interface to make it as unique as possible.

Quick review of AncientOS Android 10 Q GSI
AncientOS is indeed a nice ROM that will pleasure your eyes every time you use your Android device and see to the User Interface. Not to mention with lots of UI customizations from icons, theming, and tuning every part of the UI will make you enjoy looking to your Android device.
But at least when I used the GSI on my little ASUS Zenfone Live L2 Android phone, it is not a smooth performance indeed. Over time using this AncientOS GSI on my phone, it drains more battery than usual.
Kind of understandable though, with lots of flashy user interface elements to display, it will make the processor do harder job (compared to simpler UI) to display those flashy UI graphics to the screen thus this AncientOS GSI might drain battery faster. In the we must always choose, performance or appearance 😃.
