Comment Do you think so? (Score 1) 515

I dont think, its a bit stalled, but its as stable, usable and viable (and resources consuming) as always has been. It is solid, the fact it doesnt spurt a new version every x time, doesnt mean its at fault or its going to dissapear. Its true this doesnt have the activity of a couple of years ago, but doesnt forget the model of open source, and when no one needs it, this will be gone.

I think the use of grandma friendly its an error. It must be affordable to work whih everyone that needs or wants to. I dont say its a no good thing the chromium os, but I dont think it fits everyone needs , or it can take other approachs to do the same. Imagine this, a user with limited/low bandwith that expects to work with a chromium terminal..and needs to work now. Well, you are gonna to tell , there is little users in this side, but there is. And think of the say , its not wise to put all the eggs in the same basket (or like it must be saying in english) It recalls me of the time I was working in the it and we were selling machines with light versions of * linux distro , and then for ripping a cd you had to download the whole gnome 2 files over 28.8kbps. Greetings!!!

Not everyone only needs to surf the net or check their mail,f,y,t* account . Perhaps Mint is more suited to this. PD. I dont support mir
