What is the future of VSIDO?

Terry Ganus 4
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,


  1. Thank you both for these kind words. Of course I could not have done any of it with out the strong support of friends and a community that is one I am so proud of

  2. Appreciate that, and I couldn’t have written that any better or more succinctly! Thanks for contributing!

    Jed, your site looks good. I’ve been meaning to mention that and no time. This opportunity can’t be passed on tho, a chance out of VSIDO Forums to tell Terry what a great job he has done with VSIDO and building something from nothing. It’s a great distro, his involvement and hands on approach is exemplary and no matter what the future is for the distro he has a lot to be proud of. I concur with the admin. Best distro I have ever used. Keep up the good work, both of you.

  4. Well done Terry! Best Linux distro I’ve ever used. Hope the next year brings just as much success!

C'mon, you know you want to...
