Re: Which softwares to install ?


Didier's email was just information, and I do not see any recent emails from him mentioning Slint, I mentioned it to 

LibreFaso who is trying to help a group of blind students as a recommendation of a very easy to use system, with excellent documentation and very stable for the user.

14 words and a URL that was only submitted once is not such a bad thing, the users of this list, such as myself who use both Slint and Debian might have been interested in the announcement, and I know others here use Slint, and maybe others would try it.

It's very good, and I believe the public rebuke is uncalled for, especially when it was such a short email, and not one that was repeated.

It casts a poor light on this Debian list, I am ashamed of what was done to Didier, and I love both Debian and Slint.

Slint is much easier to use but Debian can do things that Slint cannot, so I use both.

I appreciated the announcement, I didn't know that a major release was in the works, congratulations to Didier who works alone doing such a fine, free, no cost accessible work, everything just works in Slint with no tweaking at all.

Samuel, I think maybe you were confused, there was no repeat mention by Didier of Slint, but it shouldn't be 100% off topic, it's a very good thing, it's open source and if you like something from Slint, you could use it for Debian.

Didier mentioning this was good for the list readers.

When it is unsollicited and repeated, yes, that's basically what spam
