[edit- i added the closed /quote bb tag so it didnt look like what u were saying was what packrat said.  :) ~ Digit, your local friendly n helpful mod.]

Wow, really nice!  It's surprising (and cool) when I see it on someone else's desktop.  :)

Oh one more thing, my wife still works at a law firm and needs to use Citrix at home.  If you come across a painless way to get it installed on Vsido please share.

Welcome Metaphysicist!  I just made it here myself a couple of days ago.  I have already accidentally wiped Vsido off of my hard drive and re-installed it lol.  I am trying to get used to having 4 hard drives, it's messing me up!  I am curious about using Linux in a law firm.  Is it a large firm?  In one of my lives I was a paralegal for a short time.   If I remember correctly, there was a lot of very specialized software being used where I was working.  Is this a problem for you?

@PackRat & Valroadie - Thank you.  It is one of my themes.  I just made it a couple of days ago, thought I'd take it out for a spin.  If anyone is interested I posted it over here (thanks for the link PackRat):

@sqlpython - I'm happy you discovered Fluxbox.  I remember the first time I used it was while I was using a wonderful Slackware distro called Wolvix.  The rest is history.  There is just something about the simple elegance that just got me.

@VastOne - Thanks for the welcome.  I just have to mention what a beautiful job you have done with the installer.  I wish every distro was this painless to install.  It was actually a fun experience.  I remember PackRat from over there at Crunchbang.  I always admired (and sometimes attempted to copy his setups with varying success).  It's good to see some old friends here.  :)

Thanks Dizzie, glad to be here.  I'm looking forward to diving in and seeing "what's doing" lol.  It appears that VSIDO has been around for a while and I'm a little late to the party.  :)

Hello to all and especially to my old friend VastOne.  Where have I been?!  I should have gotten over here sooner.  I am really excited about VSIDO!  I just built a new computer with 4 320G hard drives and VSIDO will occupy one of them.  I'm a little confused by the menu setup right now because I am used to editing my own menu and I have not ever seen Fluxbox set up like this.  Having said that, I'm sure I'll figure it out soon and it is very, very nice.  You may remember (VastOne), that I love Fluxbox.  I am so happy to see that you are putting it in the spotlight where it belongs.  I'm at work right now but I can't wait to get home and play.  Hopefully I'll be posting a few screenshots soon.
