PostPosted: Wed 18 Apr 2012, 13:39    Post_subject:  A few nitpicks about Slacko  

Environment: 8 puplets on flash drive includes slacko-5.3.27; frugal install, P4, 512Mb RAM, Intel board,

As much as I like Slacko it will have to take 2nd place to Wary-5.290 and Lupu-5.2.8-04 because of 3 factors:
1. SeaMonkey/Composer does not seem to be a preferred browser. The evidence: just about every browser except SeaMonkey is in PPM and/or available from slickpet's Internet Pets; an extremely old version is in PPM. So, the version available will consistently be older than what is currently available from mozilla.
2. Three of my favourite pets used in lupu, ThreadGet, ClipGrab and emelFM2, are unavailable. Guess I'll have to learn how to make a pet Smile if I want these and the latest SeaMonkey in my Slacko.
3. edpview is pathetic as a pdf viewer - limited header (minimize, restore & close), not even an about, no zoom, no paging; PDF Viewer in wary is considerably better.

Luv your work Micko.
