Do not ask yourself what porteus can do for you, but what can you do for porteus!

Some people are already on the whish list for the next porteus version. Let us have a serious discussion about the future of porteus.

We can dream about it as much as we want, it does not cost much. However, let us be pragmatic, about how we can we make it better. Please stay next to kiss philosophy in your approach.

Are you thinking about having a greater pasture ground (more packages), a sexier presentation (sunny), a OS connected directly to your thoughts (blue4meridian, sevs)? Go ahead write it down to begin, but please make an effort to propose concrete means and gestures to realize your phantasms.
Carpe diem.

Salutations... :good:

I imagine my best contribution could be "alternatives"... :wink:
to start a serious dialogue for "package deprecation" (radical performance changes).
Deprecation
Worse is better
Kludge: Computer science

I think the best way for me to make my case... :unknown:
(eg. for dropin replacement packages) is to create a derivative that teaches by example.
Life hacking
Eclecticism
MacGyver in popular culture: MacGyverisms

This has been my goal for the last 12 months and I am halfway there (eg. LLVM/musl). :wall:
LLVM
Musl
BusyBox
