    Hello Gabriel !

    The site semicodeos.com is down and in Sourceforge there is no activity for months.

    I’m interested in trying this distro, you know something about it?

    Thank you !

    Great post!!!

    I would note that Ubuntu 16.04 is a great choice for developers. I have been using it for 3 years just because of programming and I’m very pleased with it

    To use Wayland is like entering the new Century. Apple replaced it, Android does not use it, Amiga and Beos developed real gui’s a long time ago. Only Illumos, Solaris, Net BSD, Open BSD, and a lot of backwards Linux distros uses it.

    Free BSD and Dragonfly BSD wants it. Gabriel try to educate yourself and maybe you will understand. X 11 was never intended for personal computers it was for computer terminals and who uses computer terminals these days. Wayland is better and gets a lot of support. Even the people developing X 11 supports Wayland. Who do you think will support it in the future? IBM, Oracle, somebody else.

    Karl, you forgot to write Wayland a couple of times more. You sound like an used car salesman!!! :D

    • Gabriel A. Cánepa says:

      @Federico – I agree with you!
      @Karl, can you please elaborate why you think Wayland is such a big deal?

  9. Karl Ågren says:

    Enlightenment, KDE, Gnome are ready for Wayland. Hawaii and Papyros Shell are under development. Why are most distros so afraid to try Wayland. Most distros uses Desktop Environments that doesn’t work with Wayland.Why? I have lost interest in non Wayland distros. It is not Wayland that is not ready it is the distros that are not ready for Wayland.

    Do you think EnchantementOS will have 64bit support?

    Isn’t 32bit on its way out?

    Best wishes for the New Year!
