I see. So. It is easy to talk the talk. let's see you walk the walk.

Or, do you just get a rise from playing Devils Advocate?

Me. being a team member on a couple of other distros ranked on distro watch. Well. I have the sense to know how fickle
popularity can be. Sometimes becoming main stream can become a nightmare. Especially for

same old people group of people, just don't get stuck in time.


Point and click and "why can't it be more like Windows" .

I guess the worst thing you can do in life is give someone a piece of software for free.
I guess the second worse thing you can do is speak ill of and judge someone who is dead.
I see a lot of judging. No action though. Back to my outside projects on this Sunday.
Sure could use some young strong backs.

this old way of Linux really doesn't have much of a following any longer. Although not a bad thing just shows the advancement since this distro base.

I am curious what this statement means in your mind. please explain "old way of linux" and the "advancement since this distro base".

If you are thinking usb with persistence, I only used one that did it right and they have not duplicated it in further releases. there are fewer useful usb persist distros than you may think, mint and puppy are consistent and useful. but perhaps you are thinking something else entirely. distribution model?, target audience?, desktop appearance? linux camps? one can only guess.

If you are thinking...

"Thinking" may be giving linux4me a bit more than his due.

I came across this old post and the issue is so moronic I couldn't help adding a thought.
By this rationale, popularity (whatever that means) is synonymous of quality.
If that was the case,  "Despacido", being downloaded a billion times a day, would be the best piece of music ever and Luis Fonzi a greater musician than Mozart.
I  think that, more often than not, popularity is actually inversely proportional to quality.
