|Is Firefox 1.5 going to be included sometimes in DSL ? (Firefox 1.0.x is no more supported by Mozilla).|
I believe the Firefox 1.5 issue has been discussed before; 1.5 represents increases both in size and resource needs. 1.5 may be good for DSL-N, but with only 50 MB to play with, and a low-powered target, I don't think 1.5 is right for DSL proper.
On The FF front.
I still favour an even smaller distro.
Remove FireFox and mostly every user level App, that sits on-top of X, except fluxbox.
Then you have room to upgrade to a more modern base system
GNU Utils, 2.6 kernel maybe.
basically I would want the CD alone to be almost useless.
except as a way to run apt-get, and install the aps you want to your USB disk, or tmp RamDrive.
and if all the bugs with UnionFS can be worked out, this would be very cool.
maybe it could be called
ESL ... Extremely Small Linux
FSL ... F'ing Small Linux
