Relax. I don't judge you. It's not a problem if each one of us has an opinion as long as we keep respectEvan wrote:If i went through the entire list it would sound like i was a Porteus Hater when i'm not.
I think this migration from GTK2 to GTK3 is a natural path that all apps GTK based are passing through right now -- and some of them are moving to Qt. So I don't think this has much to do with big distros. What I know for sure is that Mate, Xfce, LXQt and Porteus in general can live now without GTK2.Evan wrote:Modern Linux desktops like Mint / Ubuntu look better on High DPI including more usage of GTK3 themes instead of GTK2,
This is indeed a problem with Porteus, since we need to count on the guys who have Nvidia cards and also time/patience/knowledge to build the drivers. I don't know an easy way to solve this.Evan wrote:Fully working Nvidia drivers
What kind of micro codes? Could we use it on Porteus too? I'm asking because I'm not familiar with this.Evan wrote:fully working Intel micro codes
What's this?Evan wrote:fully working kernel that includes things like Apparmor for sandboxing
This is totally true! Porteus is not for beginners that want lots of different applications, since USM isn't that refined/up to date. Maybe we just need a bigger community so we can spread tasks and everyone can be happyEvan wrote:a most websites have an Ubuntu / Mint install file so all you have to do is click install, on the rare occasion you use command line it's for adding a PPA then it sets itself up
Porteus usually is one of the fastest distros when regarding kernel update. Unfortunately brokenman had some time constraints this year, but do you remember last year? One version after another as soon as a new kernel was released. Debian based distros take waaaay longer to update. But let's consider that neko is always building the lastest kernels, I'm providing most recent LXQt updates and also Xorg/Mesa updates in a decent pace, besides other individual applications. Do you remember a topic where I showed that Porteus is faster than Lubuntu when it comes to 3D render?Evan wrote:Fairly recent up-to-date apps in the repository , a fuller list and faster releases of security patches.
Finally, I think Porteus will never be a fat distro as long as brokenman continues to be the chairman
