BL added to DistroWatch

A recent issue of DW Weekly mentioned that they were planning to reorganize their distribution "Waiting List". That is starting to happen and we have been been moved off the waiting list and into "Active Distributions", complete with our own page...

Re: BL added to DistroWatch

That sounds like you are happy about it? (And it seems it is of Japan origin)

Re: BL added to DistroWatch

@johnraff has lived in Japan for years and @twoion just moved there, so that's fine.

And, yeah, I'm not angry about it! I sent Jessie an email 6 months ago and now we're on DW, I think it's pretty cool.

Re: BL added to DistroWatch

Plus, we're at the bottom of the popularity list. Nowhere to go but up!

Re: BL added to DistroWatch

What happened to the several-year-waiting-list-unless-you-cough-up-200US thing?  Did their policy change, or do you have an "in" via this Jessie person?

Does this mean we can spend the $200 on ferrets?

Re: BL added to DistroWatch

@damo, the full package list they link is correct. The summary is a little screwy, it detects the correct Iceweasel version but lists it as Firefox.

Re: BL added to DistroWatch

I sent Jessie a thank you email and a link to our "Stable" release announcement and I've already received a reply that we are popular with their readers and he plans to review us next month.

Oddly enough, I just did a post on the five lowest-ranked distros on DistroWatch. This was before BL was added--which is ironic given that I now have BL installed on two machines. :-)

I rescind my former statements regarding DistroWatch.  Looks like they're relevant again.

EDIT:  Anyone know whether the impending group hug will affect forum access?  I remember #! forum used to get bogged down when Philip make a podcast appearance or when the distro was hyped in a subreddit.

Re: BL added to DistroWatch

Yet another milestone... May. 2016.

bunsen.jpg

There were other times... February. 2015. Thinking of a song... End of the Road.... Yesterday a clear horizon, now the clouds are rolling in it's disappeared....The one thing that I've always believed in... it's strange how right now it all seems so unclear.... I consult my soul and it tells me that it knows, there's no doubt one day I'm gonna fly... Gotta stand up, dust myself off, just for now, it's the end of the road.... When something ends something begins, but now it's just the end of the road... - this was back then. An now... Well... When something ends something begins...
