to developers: have you thought of using Debian as a base for Bodhi?


maybe it is a dumb question; however, what if???? ubuntu starts doing stupid stuff - not going there but have a read a few things... what if they stop for economic reasons. they are wanting to get paid for security updates for older versions... what if?

also mint has been developing a deb version over the years and a recent statement i read is that they are planning a just in case scenario?

i know debian is the base for all of these distros but ubuntu is the go-between t present.
so i had to ask? would it be possible? a lot of work? or not too bad? pros vs. cons?

thanks! and yes this is a serious question - inquiring minds want to know... heh heh

Desktop Linux is already a fairly niche market. Ubuntu LTS releases have the most support from third parties within this niche market.

Ubuntu makes my life the most easy when it comes to desktop Linux, so that is why it is the base for Bodhi.

If this changes in the future, maybe we will move to something else. In the mean time, I'm not in the market of fixing things that aren't broken.

no problem. I kind of figured that but i really was curious. i also read that debian is tougher to get working due to the lack of extras and codecs that work and make my life easier too.thanks jeff!
