It works, but I initially had difficulty with screen dimming; a laptop power saving issue which I needed to add a line in lilo to get around.
I was surprised at how large, once installed, this is now; never used to be like that. It just about filled a 10gb partition;so its not worried about space.
Comes with a lot of python scripts for control of screen etc.
Still uses the icewm as main window manager.
So... Cons ... takes up a large amount of space on hard drive/partition....personally I did not like all those python scripts...came with both qt5 and qt4 which made it a kind of bloat ware distro; I had to uninstall a lot of software including libreoffice just to make space.
Pros...is still responsive...based on slackware; so you can still install slackware packages.
Would I use it? I think it has gone in the wrong direction for myself.
It simply works and suits my needs at work.
No single distribution could fulfill everything, but it serves me very well, if it were not compete, but close.
The term 'simple' does not necessarily means 'easy' :)
, the term 'complete' does not necessarily mean 'full of stuffs'
, any *auto*-pkg managing tool w/ frequent updates does not necessarily mean 'stable/usable' all the time(or 'less time' to maintain )
What I just want is 'stable' and 'dependable'.
Install and forget, let's make jobs done w/o any fuss.
