One derivative gives you everything, and one nothing at all And the one that git will get you is the master of them all Go ask billyball when it was 1000 feet tall And if you go chasing UNIX, and you know it's going to fail Tell them your neck beard had overcome you and the need was to learn And call Linus, when he was so small When the engine of the spiders take you where to go And you just had an epiphany that showed you nothing at all Go ask Google, they always know When choices and decisions have led you to the end And the watchtower is leading you to the mint valley And the redhats and fedoras no longer fit Remember what the savant said information is the only power

When I made the decision to go to just FluxBox, I built it from scratch and one segment at a time and began the build process after each segment to see where and what was happening. Through this process, I was able to use ncdu and really analyze what was going where. This led to a critical look at just what applications made up VSIDO and make better decisions on additional things. Really, the short answer is that I took a clear look at the build and streamlined it
I am quite happy right now with VSIDO and think it is at the point that I can sit back read more
VSIDO 3 Now Available
That’s right, just when you thought it couldn’t get any better! Version 3 released this week, unveiling a slightly new direction for VSIDO. Now a Fluxbox only distro, a smaller LiveUSB image coming in at 412mb just in case you rather have the LiveCD version. For those that are unaware, using a LiveUSB can speed up an install by at least a factor of 10 and is as easy to make as a LiveCD.
The total install once completed averages around 1.6Gb’s of space. Memory resources are also at an all time low.
This build, like it’s predecessors in the past has all the apps and tools at your disposal to be up and productive in less than 4 minutes. That is correct, from a blank hdd to a fully functional OS in less than 4 read more
