There needs to be a marketing group project, to create viral videos and the likes. To increase the user base and potential volunteers.
It should have a rescue and recovery option to last good configuration and default configuration from both cli and gui. Note: a partition should be set aside by default (but optional) to allow recovery from deleted, modify, moved system core files. A program that compares current and default installation, allows to trouble shoot and recover system.
Gui tool that allows for customization of splash screens. I don't know much about boot loaders, what comes to mind as a solution is gfxboot + grub . I don't know if it allows for more then 14 colors, and more then one image but hope it can be re-engineer to do so. Make code clean and scalable, feature rich and customizable. There is nothing that boost you up more then getting kick into gear.
When you log in with selected environment as XBMC, XBMC with MC360 theme should be the full screen desktop environment.
4. I would like to be able to open an application without worrying about windows, panels and the likes flowing all over the place. Its disorganized,impractical, and chaotic. I don't see how anyone can concentrate on work using GIMP for one. with all those windows flowing about. I hope better and professional effort is placed and committed into GIMP, Blender etc... Notice noob users Judge linux on their experience not with the particular distros but with the application available or not on it. This determines whether the continue or go back to something else, like wac OSX and mindows. Intermediate user Judge linux distros on their ability to manage, maintain and configure the OS through the GUI, Advance users Judge it on facilities available in the CLI, making one distinction from one distro and another by the package managers ease, flexibility and power. User experience is important at all levels, as we all start as noobs and eventually work a way up. The experience must be complete and rewarding.
5. I second the ability to create a separate partitions as additional options. It should all include an upgrade path selection that automatically (optionally deactivated) mounts home, and gives you the option to create and/or mount other partitions.
6. We need more options for Sabayon wall papers and Compiz-Fusion cube Skydome wallpaper (Sabayon) tailored for animation.
7. Modify session list to include Default, Gnome, KDE, E17, XBMC(fullscreen mode with MC360 skin), fluxbox, failsafe. The XBMC default skin is more suitable when running it on the Desktop environment as window. Where The XBMC with MC360 skin is more suitable as a complete Desktop Environment.
Just want to voice my concerns up stream.
Just in case you guys haven't heard it lately, your doing a outstanding job. Your talents are revealed in the product you deliver. I see more and more Sabayon tracks around the world in the near future. So stay true to the vision.
Continue the effort for better user experience and clean, secure, optimized code of course. Increase boot speed and overall performance, but never compromise it .
P.S. Linux Rocks!!
