Very happy with this edition.

Postby Andrew » 05 Aug 2014 01:16

Hi guys. I downloaded this the other day & installed it on my Dell D630 laptop, replacing SolydX. Very happy. Install & update went without a hitch.

What I like:

Even though it takes about 10 seconds longer to boot up than SolydX (which doesn't worry me at all), it's as responsive & quick as X when using it.

It also handles playing DVDs better than X in my opinion. Pop the DVD in the player & the dropbox appears for me to select which program to use to play it, same as it did in SolydK HE. In SolydX I had to open VLC & then manually select the player so it would play the movie.

What I didn't like:

This one has the welcome chime & logout ding set on as default but on SolydK HE (installed on desktop) they were set off as default. I personally don't like those two system sounds so I had to turn them off.

I don't really understand why this one is needed. I already have the Thunderbird shortcut icon on the left of the taskbar, along with the Chrome & Google Earth icons, but when I opened Thunderbird a second icon for it appeared next to the Update Manager icon on the right in the task bar. Then when I closed the program, the icon stayed in the task bar. I eventually found how to turn that off, but why is it ON in the first place. Is it because this is a Business edition, as the default for this function in K HE is OFF.

Anyway, now those 2 are sorted, I'm more than happy with it. Keep up the good work guys, this is a great distro. I only wish I knew more about code & how to fix things when they break so I could help with testing or whatever.

Here you go. Put it in this way so it reads easier than using the "code" display.
