Greetings all, quick updates.
- The planetwatt forums have been made read only with sticky annoucements on each forum so nobody misses it.
- The main planetwatt web site references viaOS now and links to the home page
Development questions and updates.
- What browser do we want? I am very interested in Brave, but am going to drive it the next couple weeks to see if that makes sense as it would be a lighter alternative and more private, but with a mainstream enough user-base and engine that we would not run into casual user issues. Feel free to add commentary here on alternatives as it is not settled yet for sure.
- What other desktop software? I will throw out a few other thought starters for discussion.
- Music player or not?
- FTP client and or torrent client?
- Picture editing or not?
- The normal “scaffolding” around LXDE will be there (EG. PCManFM for files, lxappearance, etc)
- I will post a separate discussion around i3 specifically and what it will have/need since it will have a subset of LXDE tools, but does not necessarily need to be identical since the user-base for that is usually different than a casual user.
Once we get a few more things settled, more screens and substantive info will arrive. I am thinking that the first private ISO for LXDE will come in roughly a month from now.
Onward and Upward!
