I had to use a Google translator to understand what you're saying.
Okay, I'll answer, this time without jumping through logical reasoning, not missing the points that (at least to me) seem to be obvious. Trying to make my message compact, it turned out that I had made it loud ugly words?
So, let me quote your message for which I responded.
It's hard to believe all of this happened to please a small crowd of conformists, fanboys and ex-Ubuntu users who never understood or cared much for core values such as "Simple, Small and Lightweight".
I'm not saying whether these words "ugly little rant" or not, I'm just doing the following conclusions. You think that's:
- You know exactly what is "Simple, Small and Lightweight"
- SliTaz developers do not know this and do not want to know
- Developers are not engaged in creative work, and do not put their soul and their free time in the development of SliTaz
- Instead, the developers have gone on about the worst personalities
- Unlike SliTaz developers, you are the one you know exactly how it should be
Have I succeeded to "read between the lines" the thoughts with which it was said quoted?
I think that the developers are very hurt to read such words. Now regarding the TazPanel.
Last page of TazPanel short log — the very first commits from Christophe Lincoln AKA Pankso: http://hg.slitaz.org/tazpanel/shortlog/b9f87bfa0d75
Can a person with such selflessness going on about "a small crowd of conformists, fanboys and ex-Ubuntu users"? Or a person conceived and implemented the new wonderful tool?
TazPanel is one of our great and new important projects that change the way users and administrators administer there SliTaz system
TazPanel is my current BIG project, in time it will replace all SliTaz
boxes (except mainly subox) such as Tazpkgbox, mountbox, netbox or
tazlitobox. In short one will be able to do all system mangement and
settings from TazPanel.
I think that no one will go back. This is the directions of development of the distribution. Therefore, your words, Darjeeling, seem not only offensive, but also inappropriate. They will not change anything.
Pankso, though for a long time there was not announced, still continues to be the principal designer of SliTaz. SliTaz — it's his baby. We are — other developers — can not hurt his child. We have to maintain it and develop it. I will say one thing. I moved from 3.0 to 4.0 just because of that to test and see what the TazPanel is. And since then, I have never regretted it.
But if you, Darjeeling, do not agree in which direction SliTaz developed, and thus know exactly in which direction it should move…
If you really want to, but the developers for anything in life would not be breaking new tools and go back to the old one…
I think there is only one way — to fork it and to make your own SliTaz (to fork it).
This happens very often. Here are some examples that quickly come to mind:
- Nano editor is a fork of Pico
- Yad is a fork of Zenity
- Inkscape is a fork of Sodipodi
- MariaDB is a fork of MySQL
- LibreOffice is a fork of OpenOffice.org
- Mageia Linux is a fork of Mandriva Linux
Even if you are not a developer, but with enough determination and obstinacy, you can find like-minded people who will further develop the ideas that were laid down in 3.0 and were thrown from 4.0. Hopefully now I have explained my point of view.
PS: By the way, please show me your posts are written in early TazPanel. In which you said TazPanel is bad and should not go away from the good old tools. A quick search on the forum, on the SCN and Mailing List has not given me anything.
PPS: Forking of SliTaz is not an empty sound. Here are some examples, perhaps I can not call forks in the full sense of the word, but it is certain that this change SliTaz the way need to the developers of these examples:
