It's 3:43 am, should be working on something "productive" instead babbling in a nix forum ... sighs.
The toolbar across the top is alien to anyone used to a winblows OS though. Aside from many other things that made me almost instantly despise ubuntu 10.10. The ridiculous panel running across the top definitely didn't help. Plus they reversed the order of the windows controls for close, maximize and minimize for some tarded, unknowable ... buntuish reason.
Is of course just nix newbish opinions and late night babbling. But would think a distro with an eye towards the future would focus more on targeting M$ users and making it easier for them to migrate over. Rather than imitating buntu's layout. Anyone new from M$land will find it quirky and alien. Anyone already familiar with nix would have no prob adding a panel across the top if they want it there anyway.
Thinking would like to see VL focus on something it's got down pat. Making kickbutt, full featured ... yet ultra light OS's that could blaze on something with the ram of a calculator. The devs here definitely have that down to a T. VL lite 6.0 amazes me ... Tons of people in the world with oldish, lowish spec systems who would really enjoy VL lite me thinks.
Seeing what they did with it. ( He ? Not sure how many people work on developing this nix distro.) But seeing what they were able to do with VL lite makes me keen to explore what the fuller weight releases from VL are like too.
Glad the OP might get a happy ending here. Awwwww ... who doesn't like a happy ending ? Does the heart good, it does.
