        In spite of its protests, the name antiX has obviously completely fascinated it and got its full attention, hence the name is a success no matter how much it claims otherwise 😉

          The tone has been turning kind of nasty. We’ve been sniping at each other more.
          I think there are two contributing factors to that:

          First, this has been a long process. We’ve put in a lot of energy, and
          I think some of us are coming to a point where that is rubbing us a bit raw.

          Secondly, discussions run through a progression. In the beginning, you
          get the most dedicated people who are currently available. The people
          who care enough to make sure they are there. Then as the discussion
          progresses, you get more people involved. Each round of new people has
          a cost. You have to revisit things, help catch them up, sometimes
          reconsider significant chunks of what you have already thought in light
          of comments they make. The first couple times this happens, we call it
          additional review from a wider audience. It’s essential for doing a good job.

          Each successive round of people drifting in has a higher cost.
          Typically each successive round of people wondering in are willing to
          dedicate less energy, and have less context in what has come before.
          Some of the costs grow higher. They are more likely to bring up things
          that are well settled without new insight. The earlier participants
          know where some of the pain points are, and are more likely to know
          where to be careful in what they say to be respectful. After a certain
          point, the people drifting in might have apparently really simple ideas
          that are unworkable because they disregard the needs of some segment of
          the community. Hearing these again and again can be harmful.

          I think both factors are contributing.

          So, I think we’ve accomplished what we can accomplish here in this discussion.
          Continuing the discussion would simply escalate tensions for all of us
          and I don’t think has any probability of significantly increasing the ballot.

            Let us not snipe at each other, you know it wouldn’t make any difference anyway…let us just beg to differ, & carry on.

              But the President of the Land of the Free always sets us a good example on Twitter every day. You can’t blame us for following the President’s example. He’s the example for us all, don’t you know?

                Amusing response, VW!

                As Fatmac commented, and Skidoo articulately explained just prior to that, we’ve done the best we can do, and the results are very good, even if they are not perfect for everyone. Please note that there are numerous distributions to choose from. We offer two significant ones in our regular releases – MX Linux and antiX, plus we share easily customized variations of these, allow many tips and suggestions in the forum.

                While, as moderators we do welcome a lot of good feedback – and we’ve received a lot of it, at this point, the comments are becoming less helpful and more critical, and therefore it is time to close this particular discussion.

                We are always open to suggestions, but please remember to make constructive suggestions with specific examples, and avoid personal criticisms that can lead to activities other than promoting improvements to our efforts. Closing this one down.
