I follow the Debian Twitter account and got the announcement there.. Will try to relocate it and find its link

So much continues to change with Debian... Makes me wonder how much longer VSIDO will be Sid or even around

Found this; couldn't find an actual Debian announcement - just the link to the change log in the article.

Xorg will still be available, which is good for those that don't want to use Gnome, KDE, Enlightenment, or sway.

This is an interesting one because Debian announced that Wayland will replace Xorg x11 in Debian 10 that is due in 2019

Is it possible Sid could have that replacement this early?  I think it could be but we should wait and see what is happening as RatMan suggested

There a big update to Xorg in the works? I'm getting the un-install all things X with the dist upgrade:

Guess I'll wait a couple days - let Irma go through as well, I suppose. Should make for a massive upgrade middle of next week.

spectrwm + emacs

The more I tinker with emacs the more I like it - need to get my head around some keybindings to exit gracefully though; getting hung up too often. Time to revisit the tutorial  8)

WM Designs and Discussions / Re: Fluxbox Styles

Been tinkering with some terminal fonts that were designed to look like the old DOS terminal font:

Nouveau IBM

Perfect DOS VGA

More/Less Perfect DOS VGA

Not only do they look good in terminals, they look really good in taskbars for tiling window managers. Went ahead and used Nouveau IBM (my favorite of the group) for the entire fluxbox style:
