Hi guys, why dont we move this to the forum where it can be easier to document and organize these conversations?
also on that topic, in my opinion, we need to divide us into work partners, as right now, there is much discussion and no work being done. I think the first step, is quite simply that a select few people, who know LXDE and ubuntu the best, that they can create a base system that we can work with. this system should be very small, and include nothing but the neccesairy files to run lxde on ubuntu, as well as synaptic. that way, we can all have the same base system to work with, and test things out with.

If the OS is going to be as it says below, you may as well install a minimal install then have a gui to select apps which can then be installed off the repos. This however isn't the case, we are trying to make a smalland efficient distro with a decent amount of functionality without bloating the system with the likes of evolution, openoffice and firefox. These are fully installable once the installation has completed but the initial base system should be slick and quick On Tue, Jun 30, 2009 at 1:14 AM, C David Rigby <c.david.ri...@gmail.com> wrote: On Mon, 2009-06-29 at 18:40 +0100, Ed Hewitt and several others wrote: <discussion of "keep it light" or "feature complete" elided> Restating the obvious, but the engineering trade off is always between "ease of use/fully featured" on the one hand and lightweight on the other. The necessary criterion is to decide what we really want to build, and make it unique and useful enough to attract interest. I've proposed it before, but I'll say it again as more people are on the list now (sorry that I've missed the IRC meetings for the last two weeks where the app mix has been the topic of discussion). How about the possibility of a very slim base install with the installer offering "bundles" to meet individual needs and desires? Something like the FreeBSD or Debian text installers comes to mind. The base installation would be just a command-line, network-capable system plus enough of X to get LXDE operational. We would be pushing the real work to the installer. The installer, whether text-based or grahpical, would need to provide a lot of choices of bundles to install. More importantly, I think the installer should provide something I have yet to see. That something is extensive documentation of the choices of bundles of applications, and what they mean in terms of system performance vs features. It should be organized so that a savvy user could bypass the explanations (or load a jumpstart script), but a novice would get a detailed explanation of what the choices are and what they mean for the final installed system. My $0.02.
