vsido_banner_luke80The first year of VSIDO was to see what the community would really want as it developed.  When I first put it together, I really just got it to a point that it could be released and it was roughly my desktop.

On subsequent builds, things would get added and I never paid close attention the the cruft that was also getting installed with updates.

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 and watch what the community does with it.  I keep seeing positive reviews for it, and I am hoping that continues.  The user base keeps growing and most seem pleased.

This is all beyond my wildest expectations of VSIDO, but in some ways I am not surprised.  I make it a point to stay involved first hand, I want to make sure everyone knows who I am and why VSIDO is what it is.

The really scary thing for me is, there seems to be no problems.  No one is reporting issues, and the forum is quiet.  I do not know if this is good or bad!!

Thank you,
