I’ve read the overwhelming reactions on our launch on the forum, Telegram, Twitter and other Linux groups.
We can’t thank you all enough for the kind words and reactions on our milestone release.
Today and tomorrow I’m going to focus on another Endeavour project I’m involved with: Preparing the Christmas turkey for twenty people, so I may not be very active on the channels and this is certainly not a lack of interest.
Having trouble with upstream Arch updates is one thing, having trouble with the homefront is an endeavour I’d rather avoid. So I promised to keep my focus mainly on Christmas and the homefront.
I just tried the new net installer on virtualbox with several of the DE’s (gnome, kde, deepin, cinnamon); and did not run into any problems. The net-install is a little slower install than the offline, which with the calamari installer that doesn’t show the details, and might make you think it’s hung-up at certain points. But it’s not. You just have to be patient.
Still keeping XFCE on my main installation. It’s tweaked just the way I like it.
Thanks again to all the EOS folks! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
For me too, I only wish I had your baking skills especially your icing skills. A couple of years ago I saw a picture of a Flamengo cake you made with your daughters and it looked amazing. BTW Thank you for the amazing Mezcal recipe… We had a very pleasant Christmas eve with them. (Yes THEM as in more than one)
Your welcome and you can bring me a couple of bottles ‘Andalous’ I don’t understand why it’s not available over here. On the other hand, it is the perfect excuse for me to visit Antwerp, Brussels or Leuven (sorry don’t know the English name) just to get it.
Well congratulations on a well functioning installer!!
I installed Mate, LXqt and finally Xfce with it last night and no problems.
Two things though:
Is the net installer the only installer on the ISO? Because I swear I missed the option of online vs offline the first time, when I just pressed the installer button in the panel? Or maybe I was just tired after too much pickled herring…
I would prefer if the online install version of Xfce was not themed either, like the others. For consistency. But that’s just me.
