i read somewhere that adobe flash player will no longer be supported December 31-2020.

will adobe flash be included in the final release of Linux lite 5.0 and beyond ?.............

Yes it will since it is still supported. It is likely that in the 5.2 release, it will be removed.

Yes, but ZFS is for servers. You won't need it on a home pc.

Yes, but ZFS is for servers. You won't need it on a home pc.

Does the installer support it or do I have to install it after? I'd like to get root on ZFS too (this is what I had to do for 18.04 which is a lot of manual steps: https://openzfs.github.io/openzfs-docs/Getting%20Started/Ubuntu/Ubuntu%2018.04%20Root%20on%20ZFS.html)

I find it very useful on a laptop to take snapshots (plus Ubuntu now can take snapshots before installing packages for easy rollback, via zsys: https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2020/03/ubuntu-20-04s-zsys-adds-zfs-snapshots-to-package-management/)
It is also useful to send laptop *incremental* backups (snapshots) to a ZFS server (using zfs send|receive).
True these are advanced features but they are very useful if familiar with ZFS (I've been using it for over 6 yrs).

My advice is to get this RC and see if it does what you expect it to. Then report back to me with the results. But you'll have to be quick, we release in 2 days :)

I'm looking at getting a new laptop so not ready yet. It is nice to see you added UEFI support.
I think you are doing a phenomenal job with the Xfce UI, I played with it a bit in a VM with the previous stable version. Thank you for your work!

Good question. Am setting aside today to install 5.0 LTS. Had tried a distro or three in the meantime,
and they were not Lite. So ready for 5.0. Glad somebody asked!
