Hi Mike,

Thanks for your input!

I agree regarding the search functionality if a user is looking for help or want to check whether a suggestion/request/bug report has been already logged. However, I was referring to the developers. How are they supposed to use the search function to find these suggestions etc. in general? In saying that, I would assume that Jerry & Co have some process in place (outside this forum) to track this and we just don't know about it :) So maybe another way to approach it, would be to suggest more transparency of this "list", like a more detailed road map, maybe even including a list of declined suggestions?

The other aspect I tried to bring across - but obviously didn't - was the feedback from the developers towards the user. And I am not talking about help requests! This forum is one of the best I have come across when it comes to looking for help. :)

I'm referring to feedback to suggestions etc. submitted. Take this example:
https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/suggestions-and-feedback/linux-lite-3-0-suggestion-thread/msg21946/#msg21946

So I submitted these 14 suggestions I had collected over some time.
How do I know the developers haven seen it? How do I know whether I made myself clear? How do I know what they think of it, or even what they have decided?
I don't!
Will this encourage me to invest the time again? I definitely will think twice.

And, again, it's not about getting a positive or negative feedback, it's about getting a feedback at all. Also a "declined" is a valuable feedback :)

In regard to the voting. It's meant to be one of many indicators, not the sole parameter for working on something or not.
I got to know it via my involvement with Taskcoach and found it very helpful:

Every post is read in regards to suggestions. We wouldn't be where we are without them. I read reviews, watch Youtube videos on LL. Anywhere on the net LL is mentioned, I read.

Use that first post as a summary of how I treat suggestions. Cheers :)

Hi LL-user,

I think it's unrealistic for everyone to expect individual feedback (whatever its form) from developers for every idea submitted, due to the time factor. The developers (like most people) have families, jobs and other responsibilities and interests, outside of their time in front of a PC. That said, I'm sure if you submit a good idea worthy of further consideration, it will get acknowledged...

2017 - Raspberry pi 3B (4cores) ~ Arm710@1.2GHz - LibreElec, used for upgrading our Samsung TV (excellent for the task)  
2012 - Lenovo G580 2689 (2cores; 4threads] ~ i3-3110M - LL3.8/Win8.1 dual-boot (working very smoothly)
2011 - Samsung NP-N145 Plus (1core; 2threads) ~ Intel Atom N455@1.66GHz - Manjaro (tried LL3 series but lagged)
2008 - Asus X71Q (2cores) ~ Intel T3200@2.0GHz - LL3.8 (working very well)
2007 - Dell Latitude D630 (2cores) ~ Intel T7100@1.8GHz - LL3.8/Win8.1 dual-boot (LL really zippy!) - my daily driver  :-)

All good. Just bouncing ideas how to make the process more efficient and effective for the project AS WELL AS for the developers. :)
Obviously there are many ways to skin a cat... and at least as many opinions on top of it :D

Keep up the great work. Thanks once again, Jerry and team :)

Okay, there are important differences which no one has really pointed out in this thread, but before I came here I did some homework:

In Linux Lite, applications are named for their function, not their "real" names.  A newbie wouldn't know that Evince is a pdf viewer or that Thunar is the file manager.  Linux Lite is for novices who don't know even what they don't know.  This one little thing is very thoughtful, all by itself.

The Xfce desktop is highly customized in Linux Lite, yet still infinitely customizable by the user.  Again, with newbies in mind, and simple people like me who would rather run applications than running the operating system.

Linux Lite includes a magnificent set of tools to make maintaining and tweaking the OS effortless and non-stressful, with point-and-click simplicity and explanations for us non-tech types.  If unsure, there are explanations and the support of this awesome forum, in which the Lead Developer actively participates.  That is rare!

This is better for newbies than even Linux Mint in my opinion.  From the start, it has always been designed with newbies and simplicity-loving technophobic users like me in mind.  And lastly, and most importantly:

Before Linux Lite, it was an axiom in the desktop Linux world that speed and performance was a trade-off to achieve "user-friendliness" with a GUI.  Linux Lite has proven that you can "have your cake and eat it too," so to speak.  No longer does it have to be a trade-off of lost performance to achieve a newbie-friendly GUI.

You hit the nail on the proverbial head Artim. I wish reviewers would see LL as clearly as you do.
