Great! Thanks a lot!
Sometimes, it's the only way you can pinpoint some nasty behavior!

Any news on LL 6.8?

Best regards!

Thanks for answering! :)

It's difficult to make a choice. Given the average level of the users, as you said, it's safer to avoid tampering with key components.
As I see, many users have trouble reinstalling, although it's relatively easy to create a /home partition that waives all the headaches...
Under such conditions, it is out of question to put such a tool in the wrong hands. It just opens the Pandorra's box of complaints...

Final note:
I am very happy with Linux Lite 5.0 on Dell Precision T1700! :)
Everything works flawlessly! :) (So far... :) )

Thanks! :)
Have a great day! :)

Hi, Jerry!
I've been looking for a long time for such a tool.
Sadly, none of the above have versions for Core 20.04.
Reverting to LL 4.8 looks ugly to me (I'm very pleased with 5.0! :) ) and I lack the skills to compile and eventually, fix things if needed.

Do you have any news on releases for 20.04?

I bookmarked the thread, I find it very important, since getting rid of useless services is important to anyone.
For now, I have DConf installed but it's too technical, has to many cryptic fields. Reminds me very much of RegEdit... I never liked it but there were too many things that could be solved only this way...

I like better Boot-Up Manager and System-UI

Maybe you can add this kind of tool to Lite Tools?

Lite Tweaks is from UI's perspective, very much like these ones. I like it, I use it. :)
Sadly, SystemD is too complex to add all things into Lite Tweaks and as I see things, for a total newbie, it would be better to have a distinct App. My modus operandi allows me to do whatever I want with the machine, since a restore takes some 5 - 10 minutes and I've done it countless times but for this, you need practice and this takes time...
I never recommend to a beginner to use tools that might create trouble and tampering with SystemD is the last thing I would recommend to a beginner...
As I see it, this is very much like running the whole system as root. It's possible, but why?

A different approach might be that having such a tool in Lite Tools Package, might impact the overall impression on Linux Lite. Might boost the number of users.
It's less about running Lite on a slow machine. It's about the efficiency Linux Lite provides me. Now as you already know, I have enough resources to run whatever distro, eventually get back to Mint. Still, Lite is different. More stable? Maybe. More flexible? Maybe.
I never had serious trouble and I went from LL 4.0 to the current LL 5.0.
Further more: while some people had trouble with GUID/UEFI, except for some 30 minutes I lost to figure out how to do it, it all went smooth enough to call it "Out of the box".
While on Mint, there were trouble from version to version. Nothing "unbreakable" so to speak, but annoying enough.

And there is something you pointed out in the interview: COMMUNITY.
This, I find irreplaceable.

So, what do you think? Is it doable?

Best regards! :)
