The future of Porteus

New features which should be implemented in Porteus; suggestions are welcome. All questions or problems with testing releases (alpha, beta, or rc) should go in their relevant thread here, rather than the Bug Reports section.

Salutations... :good:

I sincerely hope LXQT is NOT being thrown under the bus because it's the reason why I use Porteus. IMHO... :oops: the other desktops suck because I like the
idea of choosing WM's (PekWM). I left the PeppermintOS (LXDE) forum after someone suggested Porteus when I expressed interest in the Siduction (LXQT) project.

The LXQT (3.2) iso doesn't have to be part of the online Porteus builder but that does NOT mean it should not be part of the ftp repo for many of us that use it.

"Best Regards"... :beer:

Just to make it clear, isn't KDE5 meant to be "only" kde5, with the mist recent kds, kdelibs, and qt and such and not a kd44+5 hybrid?
Cheers!

Yes, Kde5 is supposed to be independent from Kde4. This "independency" is happening step by step with every new release of Kde5. When all supported applications are ported to Kde5, the loop will be closed.

The most important applications are already ported to Kde5 (they use xcb instead of Xlib, qt5 instead of qt4, etc.), so don't make use of the old k's... They (alien.slackbook.org/ktown) are bringing updates of Kde5 practically every month, bringing newly ported apps and thus eliminating old versions depending from qt4, etc., and adjusting already ported ones to work again in case the newcomers alters the functionality of already ported apps.

Cheers!
Porteus is proud of the FASTEST KDE ever made.....(take akonadi, nepomuk and soprano out and you will have a decent OS).
The Porteus Community never sleeps!

: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".

From my perspective... wisdom does not have an expiration date.

"Consider" this... @ that time, there were concerns about the dismissive mentality that still persists in the systemd project to this day.

True enough but sometimes the circumstances it relates to change. Although apparently not in this case.
