    Dedoimedo is a special word, because it means finger and fear in Portuguese, among other things. Lo and behold, coincidentally, I've written a rather enthusiastic review of Dreamlinux 5, a Debian-based distribution with Xfce desktop hailing from Brazil, covering live session, installation, and post-install use, including look & feel, Wireless, Bluetooth, Samba sharing, multimedia playback - Flash, MP3, dual-boot setup with Windows 8, applications, package management, system resources, suspend & resume, stability, some problems, and more. Can Dreamlinux make me stop hating Xfce? Aha!

    Ah Cool.

    I've been a bit 'low to the ground' lately.
    Sinus op.
    Broken ribs surfing.
    Just blew a knee joint skiing: 150 mls blood aspirated from the joint. Eeeww.
    Work.
    Tin Lids.

    Good to see DreamLinux resurfacing.
    LOTS of Linuxheads in SA.

    Missed this release.
    Not paying attention
    Loved DL in the past, had issues with installer + partitioner.
    Great core OS.
    Lovely eye candy.
    Thought the distro may have dissolved.
    One of the devs took some leave and looked like the project had foundered.
    I was worried that nelsongs resa and andre had vanished.

    Actually, obviously very busy.
    Seems to be a change in direction: http://www.dreamlinux.info/p/message-to-all.html

    V.Nice to see a lazarus phoenix event after close to 3 years

    DLing schnell.
