I know the latest ISOs seem to be more problematic than those previous, and also there does seem to be a few issues surrounding the VOID management team - the previous 'lead dev' seems to have departed, at least for the moment..?
But this is fine, easy install - but read the 'min-guides on their site for xbps command-usage.
Still my fave distro of all time - rock solid, bang up-to-date, etc, etc...
Thanks for watching....

This [may be] the last video this year, as other things overtake me. I hope you have all enjoyed my content throughout the year and thank you all for your support on my YouTube site, as well as thanking those who have taken time to download and install my 'spins'.
A Merry Christmas and Happy New 2019 to u all when it comes around...

A look under the surface of this - literally - unbeatable distro that if you choose as a 'daily-driver' you will never regret, or look back; only Void-Linux is really comparable. Ditch those distros ending in 'U'..! GET IT NOW..at:- https://www.nutyx.org/en/
Thanks for watching and subscribing. Comments welcome.

A short video on the basics of using the excellent 'snapshot' tool that the team at MX/Antix have provided...
Thanks for watching. Once finished, the 'new' customised 'iso' will be made available at https://sourceforge.net/projects/mydevuan/

Here is the recently discussed LXDE, built on Devuan ASCII [Stable] code-base. Remember, it arrives as a blank canvas for you to 'make-it-your-own'. Lots of theming available out of the box using 'LXAppearance' settings/theme application.
Download available at https://sourceforge.net/projects/mydevuan/
Thanks for the interest...

A snappy, lightweight, distro. A couple of tweaks, and a slight 'fix' described in this video.
Available for download at:- https://sourceforge.net/projects/lxdevuan/
Thanks for watching, subscribing, and downloading....

Ready for download, my new Devuan spin, featuring the lightweight LXQt desktop environment.
To compliment my "Kdevuan-AI", but a lighter resource requirement for the lesser device. Runs immensely snappy on a well resourced device..!
Can be down loaded at:-
https://sourceforge.net/projects/lxdevuan/
Thanks for the interest - enjoy!
Video[s] to follow of course...

A short video. Banter about how to find, select, and [in-brief!] use the media, and create a personal image to keep and use yourself...

A look at what you need to get some anonymity, location-wise, at least...
Thanks for watching.

Built yesterday, using the 'minimal' installer iso. Still not 100% with this LXQt-wise, but it is still only at version 0.11 - and Im sure the later versions are better GTK integration-wise...
Thanks for watching and subscribing...

Back to the trademark panel for me!
I also look at the way to make a green them using the KDE 'Settings Panel'.
Thanks for watching....

A first-look video for all to look at what is on offer - although 'Ghost-67' beat me to it!!
I look at a niggle - or two - that are easily fixed by all, and also briefly how to use the applications I have provided; more viddeos to follow, and please ask in comments area if you need assistance.
Thanks for watching and subscribing. "KDEvaun-AI" available from:- https://sourceforge.net/projects/kdevuan/

Well, maybe best distro taking into account the 'big-guns' is a step too far, but as far as 'single-developer' distros/spins, this is RIGHT up there. Outside the 'Devuan' in-house team, Dan at 'MIYO' has no equal on this distro. Just excellent in all parts. End.
Thanks for watching. MIYO-Modern can be downloaded from:-

I'm trying to catch up on the week's events. This first video today briefly describes why I chose the 'bog-standard' Kubuntu choice for my MacBook Pro.
Thanks for watching and subscribing.

Unashamedly inspired by my freind Dan of "MIYO" Linux fame, I have taken a break from Ubunu-based builds and harked back to my Debian days. I have this installed on a couple of laptops now, and I think that anyone using this will be pleased with the experience.
Thanks for the time and interest.
Download from:- https://sourceforge.net/projects/kdevuan/ and my Ubuntu-based "Azure" can e found at:- https://sourceforge.net/projects/kde-azure-lts/

A look at the 'out-of-box experiencing you will get from the 32-bit iso-image available at my Sourceforge site:-
https://sourceforge.net/projects/kde-azure-lts/
will take you there!
Thanks for taking the interest...

Here I take a look at how to 'do things' within the standard, incumbent, and provided out-of-box KDE features. There are a lot of sites saying how good KDE is at making it 'your own' - BUT my own findings are that no-one - other than myself[?] - seems to be describing the manner of doing such things. Also, a rant on how 'GREY' the Linux outlook is on YouTube channels...
Thanks for watching and subscribing.

I'm very. very excited about the end result for all my efforts on this one. All my own 'branding' - which is a first-ever over many spins, over many years. Takes about 12 mins to install from within the live-running system, and similar from the boot-install direct. 'Systemback', of course. I hope to get it onto Sourceforge overnight, and I will leave the original for the time being - so look for the one dated correctly for download. This is about 2.6gb versus 3.1gb of the original.
Thanks for watching, subscribing, and more importantly downloading...

A follow-up to my investigation with a simple solution! Also, a look-ahead to my already created update to KDE-Azure-LTS. To finish, a small chat about PPA usage, and similar add-on archives use in other distros...
Thanks for watching and subscribing.

A small video showing things that should be done to get the best out of my KDE Plasma 'spin'. Plus, a little tweak to 'make-it-your-own' to finish the video...
Thanks for watching and subscribing...

A video showing how to remove the 10 - 30 second delays that are because of the boot-checking of BtrFs and swap-partition absence in "Azure", and also symptematic of Ubuntu 18.04 in general...
Thanks for watching - and subscribing..!

A short look at Nitrux OS, based on KDE Plama installed to a laptop. It is very nice, with hints of 'Budgie' - and even 'Unity' - desktop environment[s]. My only issue is the menu 'fickleness'; the distro would be very nice on a desktop with the mouse-click being king, but for someone using keystroke functionality equally, it can be sometimes frustrating. Still, a very nice, elegant DE, using KDE Plasma as a base to the best. worth a look if you are a desktop PC user.
Thanks for watching...

A very interesting build. On top of Plasma, KDE Neon overtones, and has a feel of 'Budgie' DE.
Built on Ubuntu 18.10 repos, but I would pull back and set up on LTS 18.04 if I installed this..?
Thanks for watching

An intro on how to use the three GUI package managers, as well as the CLI method available - all are 'means-to-the same-end'...
