Nice one, he speaks of frugal installs like Porteus, but the only one he then explicitly names and includes in the grub setup is Porteus, and only Porteus. :Yahoo!:

Me thinks that this counts as "see also" / additional info/URLs for our wikipedia entry...
Cheers!

I know, I am late, but browsing our original Porteus wikipedia entry (the English one), realized we also have Čeština, Français, Norsk bokmål, Русский and Українська.
Or in English: Czech, French, Norwegian, Russian and Ukrainian.

Does anyone know who the maintainers are of these language versions? Cause we could work together to keep all versions as recent and with a similar amount of info.
Cheers!

A very positive review about brokenman's Nemesis beta on the Manjaro forum:

???... My understanding of this thread's "context" is that it highlights the
acclaim and media exposure of this distro and it's increasing adoptation.

Therefore... the Porteus "community" (which includes everyone's efforts) should take a well deserved bow.

IMO... the community's "efforts" are in large part the result of a uncensored
inclusive forum which encourages and celebrates Postmodernism rather than Elitism .

As a "community" we should take care not to CONFUSE "dissent" and "free speech" with anti-social commentary.
From my point of view... this is one of the most important factors for continued success and growing popularity.

IMHO... it's a big tent and there's more than enough room for diverging points of interest.

The way I see it... it's just as important to retain project contributors as it is to aquire new ones (...perhaps more so). :wink:

Agressivity and uncivilised exchanges will not be tolerated by the moderators of this forum. Please reformulate your posts accordingly. This is a warning. :evil:

Please adopt a positive and constructive attitude and stay on topic, though this topic seems very wide at first glance.

I am opening a thread on philosophical considerations concerning porteus viewtopic.php?f=48&t=6156&p=48264#p48264

Build Your Own Portable Linux Distro with Porteus Building a customized Linux distribution can be a daunting proposition – unless you use Porteus Wizard. This clever and simple service lets you create a custom Live CD distro that fits a USB stick and loads in RAM.
Sounds like a good quote for our wikipedia pages. Your thoughts?
Cheers!

English Wikipedia says "latest version: 3.2, 27 December 2016"

Should that read "3.2.2"? Or is "3.2.0" really from 27.12.2016, I thought it was some days earlier...
Cheers!
