Re: [Torios-dev] ToriOS 2.0 background


Hi Nio,

I'm not sure or clear on what you want us others to pass an opinion on; I'm confused.

Hi Israel, and all toriosadores,

1. I am waiting for the opinions of you other toriosadores ... :-)

2. Instead of shrinking the tarball pretty substantially, I think your
alternatives, a.) and b.), are better.

If possible, I think it would be best with a text only live system for a
CD sized ISO file. But I have tested the alternative with a separate
tarball (or separate tarballs) with the original One Button Installer,
and if the user group people accept it, fine :-)

Best regards
