VSIDO Thoughts
« on: January 14, 2013, 06:16:14 AM »
To anyone that cares that happens to stumble upon this, I have a few things to say.

CrunchBang is hands down the best distro, community and developer I have ever encountered.  Philip and Rebecca's leadership there is top shelf and everything I have ever wanted was provided there.

I created this distro for the same reasons that Philip created CrunchBang.  I built a desktop that I like and seemed to develop a following of users with the same tastes.  I never was a fan of OpenBox but after using it with my setup, I have come to respect it almost as much as I respect Xfce. My work with Tint2, GMusicBrowser, Music apps, conky and How To's has created unique opportunities to use them in this development.

I also have a strong belief that there is nothing better than Debian Sid.  It has a ridiculous reputation as being too unstable to run and VSIDO in part was designed to blow that assumption up

I have no ambitions with this other than to provide an alternative for people who want more than just a basic setup out of the box.  If you look at the tools available in either OpenBox or Xfce menu, you will see several that are very useful.  Under the hood are even more tools that apt and dpkg use that will keep your system lean.  By lean I mean 110 MiB at boot up after you strip out WiCD .. I have no need for a network manager but needed to provide one, WiCD fits the bill.

Regarding other distros like linuxbbq, I happen to think it is one of the most incredible ideas ever.  It allows for hands on development from the community to build whatever they want.. a virtual sandbox.  We are all in this together and for the development of FLOSS and linux as a whole, there is no room for a pissing contest. I do not expect any elite behavior from our community. Just so it is clear, calling something Bloat is either elitism from a different perspective or Trolling and neither will be tolerated.

Everyone is welcome here until they are not.  This would only happen if one chose to be unwelcome.  Very simple.  I hope to have a similar community as the one at CrunchBang, never as big, but with as big of a heart.
