Favorite Current Yoper Features:
Speed Obviously: even other distros tweaked with prelinking doesn't seem to get close.
KDE 3.3: I seriously couldn't live without it
- I need my button "stay on top"
- The right-click->(navigate)->"Copy Here" is so intuitive and clever.
Nice community of users.
NVIDIA / Win4Lin / Vmware prepatched
- Patching these on other Kernels for most distros is short of a nightmare.
No Distro I found perfect but Yoper has always suited me overall by a considerable margin.
Some Programs That Need Work:
Graphics for Gaming:
- I've made a lot of changes/tweaks to make games work flawlessly on Yoper.
- The distro should be already tweaked optimized on this front
Rosegarden (and a few related midi apps)
- I can't get any sound or listen to the midis created
A lot of small programs that people don't use and don't work should be scrapped.
Gnomemeeting for other people to have fun (I dont need it myself)
What I Want in Yoper:
I will stop wishing for Evolution-1.4 it will never happen
Lastest version of Open Office 1.1.3 (but 2.0 should be coming out soon)
Boot-time to be massively reduced.
Better integration of libraries so its easy to compile stuff:
I can't get glut or SDL to compile the tutorials at http://nehe.gamedev.net
Proper English-UK (Great Britain) defaults; if I set EN_GB .. I still get Gnome or Console defaulting to EN_US
Having said all that ...
Please remember .. Yoper = Your Operating System.
You get Yoper for free but you contribute to Yoper.
So learning more about rpms, configurations, programming, scripting, even documentation or even helping others
is the only way to see Yoper advance more and more.
I would set myself some long-term projects too - like learning TCL and Python.
N-Curses is a nice tool to learn as it will help us writing a better bootloader
Each user should be a contributor - even if by a lil degree
