VSIDO at three

All grown up and matured.  No drama, no muss, no fuss!  Not really so much to write about, as it is still the goto distro on my laptop.  Three years, and one distro.  Been a lot of fun, and a lot of stability.  I have toyed with some different ‘window managers’ during this period, but in the end always arrive back to the default VSIDO WM, Fluxbox.  Quite an elegant Linux distro!  The community is a lot larger now than it was back then, but still the best Linux forum/community, I’ve ever been a part of.  Some really smart, talented people!  You should probably go download and install it now.  Download VSIDO

I’ll say more when it starts getting colder outside…
