Sparky rolling (next one, no code name yet) new iso images:

5.
Not sure to keep ARM images alive, there is no much interesting in that, and too much work with that.

6.
Improve iso images to be able launched on machines with UEFI + Secure Boot on - testers needed!

7.
The 32 bit (i686) iso images will be supported, hope so long as Debian does.

Post below your ideas or anything could improve Sparky, please.

Hello Pavroo!

This plan are good, I have only a suggestion to point 5 and 6.
I think the best option is to leave the ARM images if the users aren't interested.
I ask if if possible to create a i3wm images, I think many people like it. This images can be based to lxqt+xfce power manager (a la Manjaro style  :) ) and maybe adding jgmenu but without the bloat of Manjaro or the others distro using i3wm.
These are only my suggestion, thank to you and all the team for your work

johnny_rico:
Yes, please continue 32-bit support.

I have been looking for a lightweight distro that has 32 bit LTS, good hardware recognition and is user friendly for those seeking to migrate from Windows.  I refurbish and give away such machines, but have been finding it difficult getting all those requirements in one distro.  Sparky seems to fit that bill, with the added feature of the APTus utility.

Look forward to learning more about Sparky.  Many thanks!

I am interested.

Sparkbian may well be the foremost OS of the future!

I've disabled Secure Boot temporarily and enabled it again after the installation.
I'm running the rolling release and I'm not sure I could help testing the new isos, but I surely can try.
