I have 7.0 Std Gold up and running.
A few issue, that jumped in my eye:
-Old, recurring issue(of minor importance, I might say...) : User- accounts, created during install just aren't. You have to create them post-install. Better fix that issue or remove the instance from the installer.
-The dock(default at the bottom of the screen...) is like that obnoxious "photobomber" you'll find at every party; Annoying and blaringly obtrusive. Why are there TWO docks anyway?...
I'll see if I can get rid of that one.
-Again, my usual gripe: WHY the multitude of apps, covering the same thing? I'm all for choice, mind me. But in the repositry.
And with the current applet that lets you pick by category what app you want to install even more so.
I mean; GQView(Geequie or something like that now, I believe..) is about the best image-viewer available, why add that lame-ass Shotwell to the stack? If people want that they can Download it easily.
Bottom-line: it's easier to ADD software than to cut out the unwanted, surplus lard without messing up the entire system.
-To each his own, but I guess it's a marketing-thingy to make an OS look like made by Tonka or any such toy-factory.... I prefer a much more spartan, down-to-earth look. (And puh-lease: no "300"-jokes...) All this "eye-candy" is bad for my teeth...
A BIG word of praise though for the rightout MARVELOUS addition of VL-Quick-Picks!
THAT is a huge step forward!(I know, it's "just" a frontend to gslapt, but in this case the rule that the smallest chances can make the biggest improvement is eminent.)
Got some trimming to do, but 7.0 Std is to stay on my system. (Also because 6.0 light won't recognise the soundchip on my new rig...)
