5. Printing
6. Tight VNC
7. Games - like donald's xmahjong
8. Kodi
9. Picture editing - similar to Window's Paint capabilities. Not too elaborate.

Yes, me too.

Interesting find this Shotcut of yours. Will try to build :)

I think most of work is already done. I've been working almost 6 months now with this only distro on my pendrive and I only missed Balabolka because of RSVP and TTS features

Having WINE in a module is a heavy load...

Cheers!

As for the games, a port of neko's APorteus kpatience module would be much appreciated. :roll:

:hmmm: I do NOT have the "right" to tell anyone what they should do...
but I reserve the "right" to tell them what they should "consider".

There has been a fork on xfce desktop off topic since page 3 or 4. These posts have been moved to Porteus-v4.0 bug reports
(moved by fulalas).

Also on page two there should have been a fork for off topic since this was going into the direction of providing packages bundles for porteus 4.0
This should be remediated. Any mediator to do the job? :)
