Sorry 'bout that. Mouse is getting funky. Looks like it double pasted.
And what was wrong with Soldyxk?
An accumulation of things. Deal breaker was samba not sharing the attached printer or sharing files. Fought it for three days with posts all over Usenet, the SolydXK forum, and here under General Chat. The Usenetters gave me several things to look at or try that all made sense, but nobody was interested in following through. I got a collective shrug on the Solyd forum. The only place I got what appeared to be any sort of real interest or effort was here. Props to DO. Community matters.
The one thing I did accomplish over the last two weeks with SolydK was to beat Firefox and Thunderbird into submission. That's where I live in my computer about 95% of the time, and I have some very strong ideas about how I want things to look, feel, and work. I am loathe to upgrade, since too often I find the newer versions would break things I depend on. It took a lot
of doing, but I've now got Fx 38 and TB 31 looking and behaving to my satisfaction, nearly identical to the old Fx v4 and TB v188.8.131.52 I've been using for the last four or five years. I'm now in M11 with the updated versions, and transferred my hard won profiles from the SolydK install.
The SolydK install was done on a new SSD I snagged for cheap. This M11 is still on HDD. I'm hoping to move the whole M11 install to the SSD and hold out until such time MX-15 is released, and then look at my options. I'll be doing a fresh post about how I plan to to accomplish that move soon. I think I've got it mapped out and all the gotchyas covered, but want to throw it out here and make sure there's not something I've overlooked.
