Very nice, was my first impression when I started DSL 4,4RC1. It looks very clean and nice with the new background and style. So you can be proud of your good work and all others who have contributed too. There is though some things I'd like to mention. The new font looks good but is a bit hard to read when you doesn't have a very good eye-sight. Another thing that i very noticeably is a very long pause during bootup after either declaring the version (if you boot with the legacy option) or registering unionfs. This I discovered after adding my extensions (a pretty good bunch after all these years) and having done a remaster that have substantially enlarged the KNOPPIX file. The 3.xx series didn't make a pause bigger than a couple of seconds under the same conditions but the pause has increased much with the 4.xx series. Approximately the pause with this RC was more than 40 seconds long and that seems like an eternity if you are waiting. Furthermore it takes considerable much longer time to load the extensions. I have no explanation for this behaviour. I just have made a comparison between those two release series. I'm just curious if you might have an explanation. This behaviour doesn't really bother me because I usually have the computer on for days with everything loaded and ready to go. But it would be nice to know. It seems to be a really promising release and I'm eagerly awaiting the 5.xx series. Thanks again for all the work spent to make this release possible.
Have fun developing DSL and using it,
|I have noticed that with the new font it is spilling over out of the boxes in Dmix. Changing the text size doesn't seem to do anything to the font size.|
|It would be nice to have a single script to change the default font for all areas, .torsmo, firefox, dfm, fluxbox, jwm, .Xdefaults|
|Unfortunately, smoothansi isn't scalable (and that goes for the rest of the artwiz fonts as well). Smoothansi is 13px|
