Hi again pavroo,

hoping to find BFQ scheduler in next kernels, I would like to thank you and the other developers for your great distro.

Well, let me suggest you some ideas to make Sparky even greater:

1) About Aptus, what do you think about the following additions:

- Lazpaint, an image editor with many tools and filters, very few dependencies and also speedy in my very old notebook (even if my language is still lacking). You may find the description here and downloads here

- Xanmod kernel, general-purpose Linux kernel distribution with custom settings and new features, built to provide a stable, responsive and smooth desktop. Description here and repo here
It's one of the fastest kernel for linux as reported on Phoronix

- KDE testing repo with updated Plasma desktop and framework. Developer Norbert Preining continuosly provides fresh packets to update KDE to latest versions. Actually there are repos for Plasma 5.18, 5.19 and 5.20. You may find his blog here and repos here

2) A testing ready-to-use distro with latest KDE using the aformentioned KDE repos.

We all know Debian is very stable and that's why it is used, among the many uses, in the International Space Station, but KDE is quite obsolete as it is stuck at version or 5.17.5 for testing.
It would be great if we could have Debian's stability and support and KDE's latest features in a new still non-existent distro: surely it would have an honorable mention on Distrowatch and a ranking equal if not higher than the much-acclaimed KDE NEON...

Thanks for reading and have a nice day.

is there any possibility the Roxterm app could be added to APTus? I really rather like this terminal emulator, but it's not in the repos unfortunately.


Roxterm hasn't been upgraded 5 years, and been removed from Debian Buster and newer repos, so can't be, sorry.
