...Don't think it has Win Update Manager so I'm curious if updates are done manually and for each app... Worth a look.

That sounds potentially rather tedious. 😉

Seems to be a bit of an experiment with desktops on an Ubuntu base.

Hier in the Wiki
Wikipedia article

I also looked briefly at a couple of german language articles. The resemblance to mac OS was mentioned several times, so you are not alone with that thought, Dinga.

In the German Wiki, it was mentioned that the paucity of programs, e.g. the lack of a writing program, was due to differences of opinion between developer arising from a policy of "pure" GTK+ applications.

From what I read, and what you write, I don't think I need to try that distribution. 😉

Thanks Dinga.
We've got an old netbook here that might be a candidate for that.
It wont happen soon, though. I've got this long list of stuff that I want to do when I get time... 😉

Hmm, that's a pity.
I can remember you used to really like Sparky.

Uses icons for applications which I am not fond of, I much prefer a pull down screen.

I don't like that either. The first thing I did with the Windows 10 on my Laptop was find out how to get rid of all the "tiles" on the Desktop. 😀

Hmm... re-download the iso and re-install.

It is your "testing", after all, isn't it?

There to be broken, and re-installed...

Yeah, fair enough,

But when the Leppie Guru says it's broken, you may have already tested to the logical conclusion of the process. 😉

Heinlen your favourite? Haven't read him for years. Maybe I should have another look.
