Hi,
I think I have found another idea : if Linux Lites symbol is the feather then, it would be logical to have :

1./ name of birds or any other animal that has feather

or even better :

2./ American indian tribes because they wore feathers as our PC's wear Linux Lite and it would make our distros have exciting names (there are so much on Wikipedia!)

Just joined the forum but as a veteran of 50+ years of working with, for and on computers I dare to add my $0.02:

PLEASE stay with a numbering system. Easy, understood everywhere,  even in China I believe.

Only the creators/maintainers of any major piece of software will ever be able to associate a name with the correct context of where in the genealogy a given piece in question stands!

New and different is NOT automatically better!

At last someones turned the light on.


Ubuntu do a six month new version because of the free publicity it generates, Jerry chose the LTS but I was very disappointed that it wasn't based on debian stable which is what I would choose if I was migrating a business away from XP which is what a shed load of SMB's(small to medium business)

A stable Linux running virtualbox or KVM or something using their licenced copies of XP and Office etc.

A painless solution to their needs.

But the kids always know better, it's newer, brighter, the latest thing etc


Nobody listens to old farts anymore.




I only posted a few little files!!

@UKBrian:
Thanks for the clapping hands.
But just as I have seen so many times in big businesses somebody in the top floor office  has made up his/their mind. Reason don't matter as they say here in the US of A.

Hello!

All I can say is that the OS has come a long way in the year I've been here (02/14/14). Where did the time go?

Properly tweaked, LL works wonderfully in a business environment. However, I imagine its original purpose was to be used as a home user-oriented product, and, thankfully, that remains the primary focus.

14.04.2 is due to be released any day now, so all this will become relevant again soon enough, I suppose.

'Happy anniversary' to me...

I used to have similar issues when I had my business with multiple machines. But, I named them and had a physical worksheet on a clipboard with each machines stats for example: " Fish 1-Linux Lite (1.0.)" then I put the name physically on the machine so I would not get them confused. I had to make the time to do this but in the end it was well worth it. Whatever the version name is should not be that big of an issue if the work is put in to keep track of these machines. I am currently on Linux Lite 2.0 because it works for me and keeps me productive. I use the terminal commands to keep my system updated and upgraded and so far that works well for me. Thanks for this wonderful Distro!

I'm fairly new to LL. Not a geek, just a user. Tried most of the distros, use Mint as my base, but am really enjoying LL.

As to names and numbers.
I don't use the 'buntu names, I just watch the numbers. If you must add names please don't drop the numbers or make me have to convert them. If'n it was mine I'd stay with the regular numbers.

Really nice work people. This distro took less time for me to get acquainted with than any other I've tried. And that's why I decided to get in on the beta level. Never done this before. Always waited for the release. Hope I can be of some assistance somewhere along the road.

That's just where i come from. Tried most -- even the recent crop -- and am enjoying/having fun with LL24b. Nimble, fast, clean, lean :)

Fwiw: "LTS" is a must-have for legacy-type folks (like me); few have the time to "rebuild" every so often. Since you're pulling from 'buntu's "trusty" repos, why not make it official and designate LL2.4 as an "LTS"-edition (i.e. 2.4 / 2.4.1 / 2.4.2 etc) where the upstream fixes (i.e. 'buntu's, or your 2.5 / 2.5.1 etc) get backported (if possible at all) to 2.4.x ... Just some thoughts ... Great work, btw!!!

Hello!

ALL Linux Lite point releases are ALREADY considered to be 'LTS' versions. I cannot speak for the development team, but to minimize confusion, I believe the current system of nomenclature works quite well.

As for upgrading, the decision about whether or not the minor changes and enhancements a point release brings make it worthwhile to upgrade is left to each individual LL user.  If an easy upgrade utility to 2.2 wasn't available, I'd still be running 2.0...

  • Linux Lite: 1.0.6
I didn't read through all of the posts, so sorry if this is redundant. How about a naming convention like: Linux Lite 2015.1 , Linux Lite 2015.2 and so on.

Hello!

Unless I am mistaken, the current nomenclature will remain in place. There's just too much potential confusion to try and fix what ain't broke...
